Intelligent algorithms and machines, talking trees, smart home, smart city, smart agriculture and the Internet of Things - modern communication technology, data processing and automation permeate all areas of human activity.
Our plant sensor technology, in combination with the latest technology for energy-saving, long-range data transmission (via low power Long Range Wide Area Network, LoRaWAN) creates a new type of interface, connecting you to the Internet of Plants (IoP), opening the door to an entire world of new possibilities and applications.
With the Ecomatik IoP products, information on a wide variety of plant vitality parameters and plant growth conditions can be continuously recorded and fed into further, subsequent information processing. The basis for a clear online data visualization for more efficient monitoring of vitality and growth behavior, simply from your desk or on the go on your mobile device, as well as further automation and optimization of your work-flow and production processes.
IoP-S (LoRa node with 2 analog inputs)
A small but fine LoRa node with two analog inputs for measuring, e.g. two dendrometers or one LAT-B3 leaf and air temperature sensor.
IoP-M (LoRa node + Multi-Interface)
Small, energy-saving and with a large number of connection options, the IoP-M node, is a LoRa node with RS485 interface combined with our Multi-Interface. Together the IoP-M is a real all-rounder:
If both devices are combined to form a Multi-IoP node, almost all Ecomatik sensors, but also many sensors from other manufacturers, can be integrated and result in a lean and cost-efficient solution for transmitting the most relevant plant data and environmental parameters via LoRa.
One of the many different sensor equipment options of a Multi-IoP node would be:
1x soil moisture and soil temperature sensor
1x trunk dendrometer
1x fruit dendrometer
1x LAT-B3 leaf temperature sensor
1x Air humidity, air temperature and air pressure sensor
You are very welcome to receive more individual configuration options on request.
Our IoP-S and IoP-M nodes are integrated via a LoRaWAN gateway, which establishes the connection to the Internet and the LoRa server on which the measurement data is stored. If you do not yet have an existing LoRa network with gateway and no LoRa server, we will be happy to find a suitable solution for your application. These range from a simple solution with your own gateway and the use of one of the many free LoRa servers (e.g. The Things Network) and online data visualization (e.g. Things Speak) to a customer-specific solution with your own LoRa server, database and data visualization.
