The ability to manage and measure your "'water take” and meet the associated compliance requirements is critical. With a Loncel water monitoring system, you can ensure compliance with your water permit/consent.
The Remote Monitoring Unit (RMU) primarily monitors irrigation flow meters via universal pulse inputs.
Additional remote radios can be added to the system and attached to soil-moisture sensors, flow meters or temperature probes.
The standard system consists of a cellular base station powered by a 230v mains plug pack 12v power supply. Battery-backup and solar powered units are also available. There is also a wireless option which includes the cellular station with a base radio.
How it works
A Remote Monitoring Unit is connected to a network of sensors. Depending on the coverage required, additional remote radios and sensors are connected. Each radio can be up to 2km away from the base station (or 10km with a repeater).
These remote radios are also able to be integrated into existing Loncel monitoring systems using compatible equipment.
The cellular base-station (powered by solar or mains power pack) communicates with our servers via radio relay, cellular and cloud (IoT) network technology. You can log in to our web-app to monitor moisture levels in real time - from any desktop, tablet or mobile device with an internet connection.
