We are happy to advise on the best profile for your use case and have recommended profiles for Sensor kits like this one based on the average requirement for reporting frequency. You are able to cancel or upgrade/downgrade your profile subscription when you like. Economy of scale pricing is available dependent on the number of units purchased, please speak to us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you have high product number requirements.
The price for the Davis Solar Radiation Sensor (hardware only) is $350 AUD plus GST Note: this item does not provide reporting by itself and can only be used with the Davis Weather Station and Blue Node Kit The solution is designed to be plug n' play with the sensor easily connecting to the Blue Node through the sensor join. (in this case the sensor is the Davis Weather Station and this product is an optional add on to that sensor) Commissioning the device to activate reporting through the Incyt Dashboard is either automatic or done through scanning the QR code on the product. LX can provide a paid installation service to install any of our devices. The sensors are generally plug n' play but some sensors or solutions such as the inversion pole or soil moisture probes may require specialist equipment to dig holes, or attach to fencing. We can supply this equipment and labour or the farmer can install/hire equipment themselves.
The software for the device allows for OTA (over the air) updates and the Professional grade Lithium Battery in the Blue Node can last up to 10 years*. Battery refurbishment is available through LX if required and both the LX Blue Node and the smart sensor join have been developed to withstand the elements. Any maintenance requirements are supported through the Incyt App and our online support team. We also provide support by phone during normal working hours.
The Blue Node is powered by a high quality 13A/hr industrial lithium thionyl-chloride battery with excellent thermal characteristics. (Internal battery)
The Blue Node is able to work on LoRaWAN (TTN & NNNCo), as well as cellular connectivity (LTE-M or 3G) via the LX LoRa Base Station for areas without LoRaWAN connectivity
