Cermetek designed AquaMon specifically to aid in the adoption of precision agriculture. AquaMon has also found use in other applications utilizing environmental monitoring and water control. AquaMon systems includes sensor nodes deployed in the field, cell communications to move data between the field and the web server, and the secure web server running the Cermetek RSVP (Remote Sensor Viewing Platform) specialized data processing software.
AquaMon Sensor nodes connect to a wide variety of sensors. The bulk of these sensors are industry standard units measuring soil conditions, flow rate, weather, water pressure, and water depth. Cermetek does supply proprietary specialized sensors for some applications. These include the LeafMon crop water stress monitor and SIMAT surface irrigation monitor.
Supported Sensor Interfaces
- 5 volt analog
AquaMon Sensor nodes also connect to equipment actuators in the field to control pumps and valves. This permits the grower to control irrigation remotely or to permit the RSVP software to control irrigation based on sensor data coming in from the field.
