Agsense

Agsense 3G based telemetry has been added to the two linear machines and the one centre pivot
When referring to centre pivot irrigation, telemetry is the communication between the hardware that is installed on the pivot or linear machine and the software on the website or app. At AgSense, there are three types of hardware installed on the pivot. Field Commander mounts on the end tower of any brand of pivot, CommanderVP connects directly to Valley Digital panels, and Precision Link connects into T-L PPC III panels. Together with the state-of-the-art app and web software, AgSense telemetry gives you the ability to have remote pivot control and monitoring capabilities. This ability is referred to as mobile farm management. You can control and monitor your pivots on any internet-friendly device by accessing them on a computer via wagnet.net or downloading the free app on a smartphone or tablet. AgSense telemetry units have a cell phone modem in them that transmits data to the cloud.
