Remote IoT use case: Restoration of Peatland

Peatlands are among the most carbon-rich ecosystems on Earth. Learn how MinFarm is working with an amazing team of partners to deliver a remote IoT solution that is helping perserve and restore them in Northern Scotland off grid and far from cellular coverage.

Read use case

Agriculture Use Case ROI

Typical benefits to a grower using
this system to optimise irrigation
decisions would include:
• Reducing yield losses by
underwatering: correct water
management makes a major
contribution to optimal yield and
crop quality. On a typical field of
soybeans in the USA this system
could help prevent losses of up
to $50,000 in a single season1
• Reduced time and cost of
monitoring fields: using this
system reduces the requirement
for a person to visit a field to
monitor conditions. In a typical
scenario this could easily
amount to savings of between
$2-400 per season

Agriculture Use Case: Satellite airtime cost

3USD per sensor per month over the Inmarsat Isat Data Pro satellite service

The Inmarsat IsatData Pro service supports low cost low power terminals, that are easy to deploy on land, mobile and maritime environments. Typically used with single M2M sensors, the MF400 can nonnect over 100 LoRaWAN sensors to the internet using its data acceleration protocol. Read how the MF400 provides dramatically reduced satellite airtime costs compared to an off the shelf LoRaWAN Gateway with its inbuilt data acceleration technology.

Agriculture Use Case: Installation

Requirement: Remote Soil mositure monitoring of 100 acre field

  • An easy to install kit that attaches securely to a single pole inserted into the ground
  • A solar panel less than 80W
  • 3 day autonomous operation from a small and light battery to handle winter storms
  • Satellite backhaul
  • The LoRaWAN sensors report once every 15 mins, but the sampling rate required by the application is one uplink every hour
  • 20 LoRaWAN sensors are deployed
