MinFarm Product News Update:
MinFarm collaboration with Inmarsat and CPN Satellite Service on solar powered MF 400 IoT Satellite Bridge
25 August 2020: Inmarsat, the world leader in global, mobile satellite communications, has teamed up with CPN Satellite Services and MinFarm Tech to launch the MF 400 IoT Satellite Bridge incorporating Inmarsat’s IsatData Pro (IDP) service. The solution enables data from IoT sensors operating on LoRaWAN™ networks to be optimised for transmission over Inmarsat’s IDP service, which will bring much-needed additional connectivity to IoT devices deployed in remote locations across a range of different sectors.

Remote dam monitoring with LoRaWANTM
Remote dam monitoring requires engineers to make onsite visits to measure key safety metrics. These onsite visits to locations that are often extremely remote are expensive and do not occur on a frequent basis. LoRaWANTM sensors with satellite connectivity offers 24/7 availability of key sensor metrics, that can enable remote engineers, take decisions regarding the safety of the dam and when onsite visits are necessary. This leads to lower running costs of dam maintenance, better flood monitoring and real-time warning systems.
Remote water pipe monitoring with LoRaWANTM
Remote pipeline monitoring with a MinFarm IoT Satellite Bridge, both reduces the requirement for onsite maintenance visits by engineers to pipeline infrastructure and greatly enhances the effectiveness of such visits to identify pipeline components that are leading to water loss. A single MinFarm IoT Satellite Bridge is capable of giving up to 15 km radius coverage to multiple water sensors that monitor water levels. The Bridge can operate entirely off-grid, drawing power from a single 80W solar panel and communicating via Inmarsat packet data services. Both grid power and terrestrial communications infrastructure are typically absent or unreliable over the entirety of a remote pipeline. Where leakage of water can be anywhere between 20% to 50% of water supply, realtime data provided to remote engineers via low cost satellite links is a very effective way to improve water infrastructure performance.
