Extended Long Range Remote (XLR)

The Extended Long Range Remote (XLR) is a solar powered device that has a large number of inputs for various monitoring options and uses UHF radio to communicate with an ITU G2 base station.

Key Features

  • Large number of input types for varying sensor and output types
  • Relay outputs for control solutions. Can be remote controlled by any smartphone
  • Typical range 2km
  • Optional repeater function (repeats other remotes back to ITU G2)
  • Stainless steel weatherproof enclosure and mounting
  • Solar or mains powered with backup battery

Typical Configurations

  • Installed at pump shed for monitoring of pump faults/signals, water meters, well or tank depth and control of the pump
  • Mounted on a travelling effluent irrigator to monitor pipe pressure, wheel speed, GPS for proof of placement, and provide automatic shutoff of pump in case of failure
  • Installed at a high point as a repeater with weather sensors attached

Technical Specifications

  • Solar or mains powered with backup battery
  • Four analog inputs with ranges of 2V, 10V, 40V, or 4-20mA
  • Four digital inputs with counting capability

  • SDI-12 input
  • Two excitation outputs. One programmable up to 15V. The other is fixed at 15V
  • Dallas 1-wire bus input for Harvest temp, humidity and barometric pressure sensors
  • Mains power or solar power with 12V SLA backup battery
  • One minute reporting to ITU
  • Two configurable latching relay outputs. Can be remote controlled by smartphone and/or internal logic script.
  • Dedicated input for mechanical wind sensors
  • Input for optional GPS
  • All settings can be remotely programmed by the Harvest Technical Support Centre
