Description

The system is aimed to control level and usage of resources from storage and efficient usage of scarce resources.
The system consists of an embedded sensor and control unit, communication module(s), server, WEB/Java application and a smart phone application.
The embedded sensor and control unit is in principle a box with interface for level sensors, pressure sensors, and alarm contacts, pump activation etc for supervision of water harvesting tanks and pumps. The unit contains logic doing alarm reaction, sending emails and monitoring various parameters. The unit is currently under development for water harvesting and pump control, but will be able to be used for other purposes like Environmental Resource Management in general.
The communication modules are used for communication between the server and the embedded sensor and control unit. Modules using technologies such as GPRS, Ethernet (LAN) and radio link are already developed and in production. Module utilizing satellite communication for rural areas is on the development plan.
The server solution is already developed and has been in use for years. In the development of the embedded sensor and control unit, the server will utilize and be adapted to the proven technology. The WEB/Java application and smart phone application will be developed as an add-on the existing applications for the irrigation systems.
Crysberg has 25 years’ experience in development and manufacturing of sustainable industrial solutions, especially in the irrigation business.
