Water-Smart, Nb-iot soil moisture monitor with GPS, designed by Altercodex srl
Today's technology allows for development of accurate, yet low-cost, environmental monitors with features that couldn't be thought of, just a few years ago. We can monitor:
Unfortunately, sometimes we find that public tenders are written specifying the old technology, like pt100 for the temperature and evaporators instead of evapotranspiration calculation, or local data loggers, that nobody will probably ever read, because one must go on site and stations are far away. Today it is possible to use cheap and reliable digital sensors and send data directly to a database, using one of many wireless connections.
At Altercodex we have designed various devices for environmental monitoring, for DPS-Promatic srl, and we are always keen to use state-of-the-art technology.
Among customers who have benefited by our designs: RFI - Rete Ferroviaria Italiana for monitoring Track temperature; Agrimil Tech for irrigation systems monitoring.
