Field Tested — Operating on over 130 wells in the Mississippi Valley alone!
Remotely monitor and control diesel, natural gas, or electric pumps. Initiate start and stop routines, track run time, monitor oil pressure and fuel levels, etc. Valve controls direct water to the fields that need it. All functions accessible through the software, or manual override at the unit.
Weather & Moisture Sensors
Keep track of weather patterns, including rain, wind, temperature, UV exposure, and more. Soil moisture sensors indicate how much moisture is in the soil at any given time. Watch trends. Conserve resources by activating the irrigation systems only when needed.
Monitor and control all pumps, valves, soil sensors, and weather stations from the comfort of home. The equipment runs on solar power, with battery storage and backup, and communicates wirelessly, so setup is quick and easy. Robust communications technology keeps the network strong.
Your password-protected data resides on a secure cloud server, accessible through any internet enabled device. Login from anywhere. Rest assured, Aquarius uses the latest encryption technology to keep your data safe.
Sensors generate readings every five minutes. All data is recorded and stored in your personal account to offer year-to-date, on-demand, and date-range reports. Easily generate year-end reports for NRCS submission with just a few clicks!
Statistics, trends and current conditions are just a click away. Check the health of all your land before breakfast.
Check soil conditions and control pumps without having to travel to each field and do it manually.
By tracking weather and soil conditions in real time, you know exactly when and how much to apply water.
A New Type of Automation
Aquarius Farm Controls connects growers to their fields in a way that was previously impossible. The engineers consulted producers, like you, to identify the essential requirements to make the system successful in the field. Combining wireless technology with moisture sensors, weather stations, and robust engine and valve controls, Aquarius brings water management to your living room.
Unlike other systems currently on the market, Aquarius works with all types of pumps; diesel, natural gas, and electric. It properly initiates engine start and shutdown sequencing to increase engine longevity. Track run time, oil pressure, fuel level, water flow rate and volume, etc. And all controls offer easy manual override at the unit.
So, what does all this mean to your bottom line? You save the time and manpower required to travel around to start and stop pumps. You conserve resources, fuel and water. And, at the end of the year, all it takes is a few clicks to generate the reports necessary to send to the NRCS and other programs to receive subsidies for conserving those resources.
