xProxyNet Irrigate has launched a new remote monitoring solution, the xProxy.  The xProxy continues to expand Net Irrigate’s industrial Internet of Things ecosystem.  It will provide continuous monitoring and real-time mobile updates on industrial machine statuses, and cam be configured to send customizable messages to multiple recipients.

The xProxy was developed by the industry’s best-selling copper theft alarm, WireRat, and offers a three-part solution: a versatile sensor, mobile app, and cloud-based software platform.

“Our xProxy platform transcends the benefits of our WireRat technology to meet additional needs for mobile monitoring solutions in the agricultural industry,” said Net Irrigate CEO Eddie DeSalle. “The overarching value propositions of xProxy allow end-users to increase operational efficiency, reduce machine downtime, and enable machine failure prediction. xProxy brings unprecedented simplicity to remote field monitoring. We look forward to continuing to advance mobile monitoring across a wide spectrum of applications and industries.”

Priced at $549 to reflect an economic alternative to “recurring fixed cost” solutions, xProxy is available for commercial use and provides a more modular solution for agricultural applications such as monitoring grain bin dryers, temperature, levels and power; monitoring pivot and irrigation pump pressure and power;; providing security on gates, barns and panel doors; and monitoring water levels in watering troughs. There are no monthly subscription fees associated with the xProxy Link device.

“We utilize the xProxy on our irrigation well that supplies water to four center pivots,” said xProxy user Austin Warbington of Vienna, Ga. “The xProxy is a huge time saver because as soon as we receive the alert that the well has shut off, we are able to switch the water over to the next pivot right away. This increases our efficiencies and eliminates down time in our irrigation operations.”
