Monitor - Irrigate - Review - Evolve - Repeat/Automate
The coir copilot is a complete package for monitoring substrate grown crops, with the option of automating irrigation. The coir copilot connects to our cloud-based substrate vison software to enable irrigation decisions to be made from anywhere at any time.
Coir copilot brings together the most commonly used measurements into a single system. Moisture monitoring is carried out using either Delta T Wet 150 sensors or Sentek sensors to give accurate and repeatable moisture, temperature, and electrical conductivity measurements. This package can measure the volume of water applied and run off for entire runs of bags, with the option of EC and pH measurements in both applied water and runoff.
The coir copilot is built on our copilot hub platform, allowing simple upgrades with the addition of new sensors (light, temperature etc). The station is self-powered via a solar panel (mains option available) and transmits data to the web via the mobile phone network.
Automated irrigation can be achieved via our cost-effective integration, enabling cable free automation with your existing irrigation controller.
Data can be viewed via Substrate Vision in a range of near real-time graphs, gauges and simple dashboard summaries. Automated irrigation threshold levels and temperature alerting can be managed remotely. Tools are available for weekly and monthly summary climate data, growing degree hours and chill hours.
The Coir Copilot is the ideal unit for the following applications:
- Irrigation scheduling, Automation & substrate management
- Soft fruit
- Pot, trough and bag grown crops
- Automate irrigation
- Measure daily water use
- Wetting efficiency
- Run off percentage
