The basic ECH2O system includes a datalogger and an array of sensors. Several telemetry options are available for data collection and display. Applications include soil moisture monitoring of all irrigated crops including grapes, potatoes, onions, corn, alfalfa, berries, fruit and nut trees, avocados and many other fruit and vegetable crops. In addition to soil moisture monitoring, the ECH2O system can be used for micro-climate monitoring.
The ECH2O system accepts a full array of weather sensors including temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, precipitation and solar radiation.

Radio Logger System
Take advantage of automated data collection with the ECH2O Radio Logger System. Install the DataStation next to your PC at your office. Monitor field sites with EM50R dataloggers connected to soil moisture and other environmental sensors. Up to 50 EM50R radio loggers can broadcast to one DataStation from up to 5 miles, line of sight.
Confirmed delivery protocol insures reliable communication from loggers to DataStation The DataStation is connected to a PC via an RS232 serial port for data transfer into DataTrac, a PC based graphical software program.

DataTrac Graphical PC Software
DataTrac is a dynamic graphical interface that lets you organize and visualize your measurement data as it’s collected. Using DataTrac, you can check in with your data every day without having to do a lot of analysis.
When you download a data logger or network of data loggers to DataTrac, it automatically amends the database, putting your data in the right location and adding it to graphs and charts. With a wireless logger and DataTrac, you can download once a day or once a week and watch your information unfold.
MorpH2O Web Application
MorpH2O’s custom web application automatically downloads hourly data from your remote monitoring stations and makes the data available via the Web.
Detailed information is available at your fingertips. Each sensor — soil moisture, rain, air temperature — shows up as a time series graph and may be compared against each other. In the Sensor Overview page shown below the high, low and latest soil moisture and precipitation data for the past week are presented in graphical and tabular format.
You may drill down on the data with our Data Viewer which allows you to change the time period of graphing and export your data for analysis by other means.
