Installation process

Use a metal pole with an outside diameter of 30 to 35mm and plan your required height. For increased sensor accuracy, the Mark 2 should be positioned 50-100cm above the maximum crop canopy height. Install the pole 30-40cm deep into the soil and ensure that the pole is vertical. Position the Mark 2 on top of the pole and gently tighten the mounting screw so the device remains steady on the pole. To ensure the data obtained is of the highest quality, ensure the sensors on the bottom of the device are pointing north, while also positioned directly over the crop you want to monitor. This means the Mark 2 should be always be positioned south or east of the crop you are monitoring. Initiate deployment by firmly pressing the top button on the Mark 2 for 3 seconds. Lights on the device will blink blue while it's connecting. This may take a few minutes, so stay with the device. When the deployment sequence is complete, all four lights around the Arable logo with illuminate green. The Arable Mark 2 should be placed in a location that best represents the crop conditions you would like to measure. Be attentive to local surroundings such as tall trees that may cast shadows. These can affect the data collected by the crop canopy sensors and reduce charging potential. Use included bird deterrent spikes if required.
