Growers can now connect data from any climate computer to the 30MHz wireless sensor platform with Klimlink. 30MHz, the Amsterdam-based provider of smart sensing technology equips agricultural customers with all the elements needed to monitor and optimize growing and storage environments with physical data: wireless sensors, a scalable network and a customizable dashboard with alerts and analytics, all deployable in minutes, according to a press release. Partnership and integration with Klimlink offers growers a deeper real-time understanding of crop needs on both macro (climate computer data) and micro (wireless sensor data) levels. The result is tangible insights customers can respond to, preventing crop loss and saving energy, according to a press release.
Breaking down data silos in agriculture
Any systems that generate data can be linked together via Klimlink, and made immediately available in the 30MHz dashboard, with heatmaps, graphs and other interactive visualizations. “This is a major step in breaking down data silos in agriculture. Growers work with so many different climate systems, and have to read data per system without a central overview of their metrics. This is work-intensive, impractical, and makes it difficult to fully optimize. Integrating with Klimlink knocks down the walls separating this powerful data, making it immediately actionable in our dashboard,” said 30MHz director of customer affairs Cor-Jan Holwerda.
Empowering growers with selective data sharing
Klimlink, developed by agritechnologist Wim van Vliet, enables growers to bring together large amounts of data available from greenhouse horticulture companies (most often from climate computers) onto a single, intuitive platform. Without high costs or subsidies, Klimlink opens the door to many additional applications, making data available for deeper analysis. With customizable data sharing features in the 30MHz dashboard, growers can get more value out of their measurements by comparing data with each other, while researchers and crop advisers can simply look over the grower's shoulder without having to log on to different control systems.
