Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on the number and types of devices to be installed and the span of the farm. This is why we do a site survey first. This site survey will determine:

  • Does the farm headquarters have a CB antenna tower we can put our antenna on or will we need to put up a tower
  • Is there cell service available on the farm
  • Is there an internet connection at the farm HQ
  • Do you want a display device and keyboard installed at the farm headquarters
  • How many and what type of pumps you want to control
  • We must inspect each pump and determine
  • Are the electric pump service panels up to code
  • Are the murphy panels at the diesel pumps connected and in good working order
  • Do you want a flow meter installed on each pump
  • What is the diameter of the discharge pipe and is there sufficient space on the pipe for a flow meter
  • Do you want a fuel tank level sensor on each diesel pump
  • How many moisture level or water level sensors do you want to monitor
  • How many weather stations do you want installed
  • What are all the locations of the devices, how far apart are they and are there any obstructions we have to deal with
    We have to determine if repeater nodes will be required and are there structures we can place them on where needed – or will stand alone 30ft repeater tower structures needs to be installed
  • How many employees do you want to have access to the smart farm user interface
One year parts and labor.

No, our equipment does not replace or take over the function of existing monitoring or control equipment at the pumps. We connect to diesel murphy panels and electric service panels and do not interrupt and reroute any critical signals to pass through our nodes.
