NetBeat™ is an automated irrigation system that monitors crops and the environment, then uses a cloud-based system to determine the irrigation and fertigation schedule and effect that automatically. It is controlled on-site or remotely using a computer or smartphone
It consists of a Main Control Unit (MCU) and Remote Terminal Units (RTU) that collect information and relay it back to the MCU over wired or wireless connections. It utilizes a system of sensors placed on the ground and on the plants and combines this with external information on climate and satellite photographs. This information is sent to a cloud system that determines when the plants need to be irrigated, based on various pre-stored models for each specific crop, and automatically opens the valves in the fields.
The sensors that are integrated with the system include soil sensors, plant sensors, and hydraulic sensors.
Provided by the manufacturer. Users can also do basic maintenance on their own following the video guidelines in Netafim’s YouTube channel.
Replacement components include all MCU and RTU components.
According to Netafim, NetBeat aims to:
- Provide real time insights on soil moisture, weather conditions and crop status.
- Enable farmers to deliver precise amounts of water and fertilizers to crops.
- Enable automated irrigation and fertigation based on predefined programs, sensor based trigger or cloud based crop models.
- Support farmers with more than 50 years of irrigation and nutrigation expertise and agronomical know-how from Netafim.
Potential hazards related to the operation of this product include:
- Improper usage, handling, and disposing of lead-acid batteries may lead to injury or fire.
- Exposure to radiofrequency fields beyond the FCC rules for human exposure may occur near antennas.
- NetRTU installations can attract lightning discharge, hence the need for a lightning arrester.
- Users may be exposed to hazards that come with working at heights during the installation of NetRTU.
- Installing the NetRTU’s near overhead power lines can lead to electrocution.
The manufacturer also sells a solar panel for outdoor powering of the Remote Terminal Units.
NetBeat System components complies with all the Local RF regulations, Cellular Regulations and meets the following specific regulations: CE, FCC/CSA, UL, ROHS, EMC.
Netafim also offers a wide range of irrigation tools and equipment such as drippers and drip lines, sprinklers, filters, valves, pipes, connectors, and information on growing different types of crops.
