Wireless connectivity helps to reduce the cost of system installation. Using wireless mesh network technology Farmex has added the ability to connect temperature and RH sensors, water and electric meters to dicam controllers and monitoring systems wirelessly. It is also possible to provide a wireless bridge where hardwired network cabling is difficult or simply not possible.
Wireless temperature sensors are used in Pheasant brooder alarm systems and 2m wireless temperature lances are used in grain stores. High powered repeaters ensure widespread wireless devices e.g. in large grain stores can all be read. A wireless co-ordinator connects all the wireless devices in a system to the controller. Farmex also supplies a USB connected dongle to allow wireless sensors to report to a laptop.
