            Watch Dog Pups Price And Quantity

            • 1 Piece
            • 52500 INR/Piece

            Product Description

            Wireless sensor network that allows growers and researchers the ability to

            • Monitor crop and soil microclimates for:
              • Soil moisture/irrigation scheduling
              • Insect and disease pressures
              • Frost/temperature alerts
              • Plant growth
              • Additional sensor inputs
            • Transmit data in rolling/complex topography
            • Collect site specific data with one system
            • Mesh networks are "self-healing," since the network automatically finds the fastest and most reliable paths to send data, even if nodes (Pups) are blocked or lose their signal
            • Applications for Plant Management

                Monitor frost temperatures for real-time decisions to protect crops
                Track soil moisture and EC in numerous locations for better irrigation practices
                Record temperature and humidity for decisions regarding disease and insect pressure

               

              Network Components

              WatchDog Retriever

              Retriever logs sensor data from its network of Pups (max 16 Pups per network).

              • Single button operation: switch modes, download data, upload configuration, and check battery status
              • Tri-colored LEDs indicate mode, battery level, data communication status, and configuration status
              • Non-volatile memory preserves your logged data, even when the batteries are removed
              • Transfer data or configuration information via flash drive or direct PC connection
              • Internal flash memory on the Retriever will hold approximately 6 months of data for a 10 Pup network using 15 minute logging intervals
              • Spectrum-supplied USB flash drive will hold several years of data at the Retriever for a 10 Pup network using 15 minute logging intervals
              • 3.5mm stereo port for computer connection USB cable (included)
              • AUX port for wireless (DataScout Cellular or WiFi modem) communication connection
              • Includes six non-rechargeable AA batteries (8 months typical life)
              • DC port for optional AC/DC power adapter (Max 17VDC)
              • Optional solar package includes rechargeable battery pack (2200 mAh, 7.2V NiMH), and 5W solar panel
              • Retrievers are available in both 900 MHz (US customers) and 2.4 GHz bands (international customers)
              • Retriever & Pups Launch Utility software included on USB flash drive
              • WatchDog Pups

                Each Sensor Pup within the network is compatible with a diverse number of sensors and offers flexibility by allowing the grower to monitor the sensor inputs they require.

                • Pups are available in 3 types: Sensor Pup, Station Pup, and Repeater Pup
                • Single button operation: check battery status, signal strength, and join sensor network
                • Tri-colored LEDs indicate battery level, signal strength, and data communication status
                • Includes six non-rechargeable AA batteries (8 months typical life)
                • Communication range of 2,500 ft (about 1/2 mile), line-of-sight installation recommended between Pups or Retriever
                • Pups are available in both 900 MHz (US customers) and 2.4 GHz bands (international customers)
