Complete Online Management of Your Agricultural Water, Wells, Soil and Equipment Assets
Monitoring by REDtrac® provides all the information you need for informed actions about your wells, water and soils, plus management of your booster/filter stations and ponds.
REDtrac’s WATERtrac® system monitors all aspects of your operations for both SGMA compliance and your internal management requirements.
- Pumping and standing well water levels
- Energy use – whether electricity, natural gas, diesel or propane
- Energy costs per acre foot based on precise utility time-of-use rates, or your cost of diesel, natural gas or other fuel
- Pumped water by cumulative, flow rate and time interval
- Specific Capacity of your wells
- pH and Electroconductivity (EC) for water quality
- Drip lubrication of the pump shaft
- Motor and shaft vibration
- On Demand Pump Efficiency test reports
Everything you need to know – on one screen at your office, tablet or mobile devices
PUMP AND MOTOR MONITORING
REDtrac measures the true efficiency of your electric motors at each site. The advanced system analyzes motor and pump dynamics including well production, discharge pressures, standing and pumping water levels. The systems provide growers with the Specific Capacity of each well along with On Demand Pump Efficiency reports.
In addition, REDtrac continuously records all three electric phases for motor harmonics, records oil drips for shaft lubrication, and continuously reads the vibration the shaft, motor and pump assembly allowing you to predict maintenance issues and create alerts that save you downtime and onsite trips.
ON DEMAND PUMP TEST
Motor data, real energy usage and demand, water depth and pressure information are collected by REDtrac for an Instant Pump Efficiency® report. Run tests and reports as often as you’d like and compare over time to your historical results. Track the Specific Capacity of each well, and compare the results to remedial acid and brush jobs.
WATER COST PER ACRE FOOT AS INCURRED
Onsite energy monitoring and right-rate tariff analysis enable you to efficiently schedule your operations and personnel. This powerful data enhances your ability to participate in Demand Response programs. REDtrac’s real-time electric meters provide timely, accurate information every fifteen minutes – no guess work, no revisions.
REDtrac also connects to your VFD or soft start panel as well as natural gas or diesel engines systems.
Don’t need real time data? REDtrac provides Share My Data® or Green Button utility data at low cost through our proprietary Green Button Express® system.
WATER DEPTH AND FLOW RATES
REDtrac measures pumping and standing (static) water levels from your irrigation wells. The system reports the Specific Capacity of your wells, calculates your real energy costs and the pump efficiency using actual energy data along with pressure and water flows.
For your ponds and spreading basins, REDtrac links soil moisture information, weather and ET data to estimate pond water quantities and suggest possible percolation rates.
REDtrac continuously measures and reports on Electric Conductivity for total dissolved solids and pH for acidity. The reports and alarms allow you to optimize the acidity and salinity of your applied water.
REDtrac’s Irrigation Scheduling model estimates and reports on your Water Budget by tract or ranch, suggests spray and irrigation scheduling.
SOIL MOISTURE, WEATHER AND EVAPOTRANSPIRATION
REDtrac systems can provide onsite measurements of rain, wind, temperature, humidity, Et and the sun’s radiation; as well as import CMIS data and your preferred commercial weather data.
The REDtrac system reports “Running” Degree Days, Chill Hours, Chill Portions, etc. with alerts on all conditions.
REDtrac systems collect soil moisture data in the root zone from ground level down to five feet including all your critical water level indicators.
CONNECT ANY ENABLED DEVICE
REDtrac works with almost every meter, sensor and device on the market, and has robust API capabilities. We offer wireless and hard-wired solutions for most every scenario and location. Communicate via cellular, microwave, LoRa, Bluetooth Long Range, WiFi, ZigBee, and other supported radio types, plus use protocols including IP, Modbus, RS485, SDI12, and others.
YOUR DATA, OUR TECH
You own your data. REDtrac’s analytics and reporting engine is likely all you’ll need, but you can easily download your data on a regular schedule or as needed. Import your historical data such as pump tests, water production, water depth, etc into the REDtrac platform, then graph current conditions against historical. REDtrac has virtually no limits on data storage or access for most customers.
SUPPORT and DESIGN
REDtrac systems are uniquely tailored to your needs. We’ll work with you to select the hardware, communication, user interfaces and reporting to fit your immediate and ongoing needs. Our systems are expandable and can be adapted to meet your special requirements, whether you operate an agricultural enterprise, need governmental reporting capabilities, or are an investor/partner requiring standardized testing and reporting for financial or field personnel.
