PH data logging system
PH Data Logging System
Our IoT developers at SAPHI were chosen to design and build a custom PH data logging system that was used as part of a government-funded study into the effects of PH on crops and weeds during the spraying process
What Problem Did Our Clients Need Us To Solve?
Farmers have always been concerned about water. It is the lifeblood of their farms. A particular problem affecting this valuable resource is the quality of the water itself which has dramatic impacts on the effectiveness of spraying.
Researchers have found that water quality in many rural areas is is so far out of the acceptable limits that it is nullifying the effect of the chemicals used in the spraying process. This is resulting in farmers wasting tens of thousands of litres of water and tens of thousands of dollars on chemicals.
What Was The Solution?
Development of a turnkey solution involving a simple PH logging system used in combination with a custom mobile app to monitor data remotely.
What Skills Did SAPHI Use To Implement The Solution?
SAPHI leveraged its expertise in a broad range of areas to construct the system, including:
- Flutter (for the app)
- Device electrical setup specification
- Power management circuitry
What Support Did SAPHI Offer After Completion?
SAPHI continues to provide ongoing maintenance and support to the farmers we supported to ensure they receive the data they require in the formats they prefer.
