Water quality sensors
Seametrics - CT2X
EcoSAT offers a wide range of water quality sensors for long term trend and predicive water quality monitoring.
Sensor options include:
TDS, Conductivity, salinity
Chlorophyll (Algae blooms)
EcoSAT brings compatibility with smart sensors that offer multi-paramiter monitoring in a single sensor. The CT2X by Seametrics for example provides depth and water quality measurements in one sensor. Combined with the EcoSAT website you can easily download all the data into an excel spreadsheet for easy reporting and further analysis.
Wildlife santuary monitoring
Department of Environment and Science, QLD
At Currawinya National Park, the bilbies are protected behind a specially designed fence that completed construction in 2001 with funds raised by the Save The Bilby Fund. Two electric fences come together at the main gate where an EcoSAT GOLD monitors the voltage on both fences in combination with a gate sensor to ensure visitors and staff close the gate behind them.
Any change to the fence voltage, or in the event of an open gate SMS messages will alert the ranagers within minutes so that they can act before feral cats, foxes and wild dogs can breach the enclosure. With the success of their special home bilby numbers are estimated to be 3-4 times the initial release group.
Remote weather stations
In the most remote parts of Western Australia the LUFFT Weather station combined with the EcoSAT GOLD uses satellite connectivity to to record all kinds of weather conditions. Sent to the EcoSAT website the local conditions can be recorded and monitored for years to come.
It is hoped that the information from these weather stations will help the rangers to better understand the local conditions, yearly trends and land and fire management.
With the power of the LUFFT all-in-one weather sensor EcoSAT can instantly report on a wide range of environmental parameters.
