Testimonials

  • Monitor soil moisture and other key growing conditions
  • Use data to optimise irrigation
  • Directly control irrigation using onboard relay

With the GP1 Data Logger it is possible to control irrigation, with measurable water savings of up to 60% achievable without reductions in yield or decline in quality.*

Irrigation can be controlled using combined sensor inputs – soil water, temperature, RH, rainfall, volume of water applied –  with or without clock inputs.

The GP1 is also a versatile general purpose 7 channel data logger.

Benefits

The benefits of optimising crop irrigation can include reduced water use, less fertiliser, reduced run-off, lower pumping costs, better crop quality and reduced labour cost – all leading to increased profits.

NB: Our GP2 Advanced Data logger and Controller offers even more advanced irrigation control capabilities.

[1] With USB to RS232 Adapter Cable type USB-RS232

[2] With appropriate expansion cards and power supply arrangements

[3] Temperature channels provide only single-ended inputs so should not be used with long cables or in noisy environments when used with soil moisture sensors. The accuracy figures quoted for GP1 soil moisture readings do not apply to these resistance channels when configured as soil moisture inputs.
