This is an operational monitoring tool for frost fan operators.
The Gateway unit is fitted to the base machine and can accept information from up to 14 satellite machines. Information is transmitted from the remote canopy temperature sensors back to the unit to start the machine. This information is also sent, along with tower temperature, engine rpm, battery status, wind speed and trip hours to the Loncel hosted customer specific website. Data from the website is downloadable as a simple spreadsheet. Alarms can be generated in the form of text messages.
Other remote canopy temperature sensors, weather stations, soil moisture monitors and water flow meters can also be added to the Gateway.
