Cloudlbreak Wi-Fi Irrigation Control System
NRIE Cloudbreak Wi-Fi based irrigation Control
Our Cloudbreak system utilises our Wi-Fi telemetry and the Raspberry Pi computer running a Linux operating system. The Raspberry Pi small, single board computers and the choice of engineers around the world involved within the IoT , control systems, industral automation and robotics.
The Cloudbreak system uses very low power Cloudlink Wi-Fi Field stations to monitor field conditions such as soil mositure, weather, water level and valve status.
Cloudbreak WiFi Terminal units located at the pumps provide communication between pumps and office.
The central Cloudlink Access Point ( AP ) and Cloudbreak Pi Base controller are often located at a central office. See diagram below
