AquaTerra Depth Sensor (with off field data transmission)

An insertion sensor with various sensing points with data logging and transmission components that can be placed up to 30 metres away from the sensor to minimise interference with ploughing, sowing and other field operations on the field.

Pricing model

Our hardware is priced per unit. There is an annual subscription fee per sensor and the data can be downloaded at no additional charges.

Installation process

This sensor also requires a borehole with a diameter of ~10cm. The depth of the borehole can vary to help in obtaining the soil moisture readings at different depths to the dedicated depth (i.e., 50cm, 75cm, 150cm). The borehole needs to be backfilled after it is placed in the borehole. In addition, a small trench is required to bury the cable connecting the sensor and the data transmission components (following a pictorial installation manual).
