This wireless sensor network is an important integrated part of the Akvasmart CCS feed system.
The CAP (Cage Access Point) has two-way data communication with the feed system and is an active part of AkvaControl. Up to two underwater video cameras can be connected to each unit, in addition to the built-in surface camera and camera winch. Important new features include more powerful transmitters, external channel selection, 360° adjustable surface camera and directional antennas. The CAP also allows for connection of temperature-, oxygen-, current sensors. Video and sensor data are transmitted by wireless from each cage to the base. The Wireless Sensor Network provides a practical and reliable access point and communication between cages and farm base.
