SWM 5000 is the automated monitoring system for efficient irrigation management.
The measuring method is based on FDR technology (Frequency Domain Reflectometry) and enables quick and precise determination of soil moisture.
The central hardware component is a maintenance-free stainless steel measuring probe, which is hydraulically pressed in as a compact attachment on the tractor or manually in the ground. With the handheld instrument, the sensor is located in the probe tip, the mobile version is equipped with three sensors at equal intervals - thus, the water storage capacity of the lower layers can also be taken into account during irrigation management.
The SWM 5000 system can be conveniently controlled via the smartphone app "SWM Companion". After measuring at various points, the measured values are evaluated via the app and a recommendation of the required amount of irrigation is given. The fields can be created as a GPS map and stored with specific features wirelessly via Bluetooth.
