EnviroNode Farm
Automation Controller

Farm monitoring, control and automation made simple. Speak with our engineers

Built Tough for High Power Applications

The EFAC is designed with high power applications in mind, such as driving motors, actuators, relays, valves, gates, pumps, doors and more. No more 2 a.m. site visits to check on irrigation or farming events. No more driving around the farm to check equipment. Sit back, and watch the EFAC perform its scheduled tasks, or take the reins and control your equipment from your phone, or from your home.

Reliable Automation

No need to rely on 3rd party networks. Built in, local automation intelligence.

High Power Outputs

1 tonne drivers, 20 Amp actuator & solenoid driver outputs.

Heavy Duty Enclosure

Rugged IP66 extruded enclosure with powder coated aluminium mounting & stainless fittings.

Solar Powered

Integrated 12V/24V solar battery charger with 20/40W solar panel for days of automation and comms.

Supporting your farm automation with robust technology

AgTech helping to maximise returns through better use of water, fuel, labour, time and more.


Serious Tech for Serious Applications

Siphon Automation

Automate the raising and lowering of siphons in flood irrigation.

Run irrigation schedules with automatic detection and stop on fault.

Trigger irrigation start & stop events based on available water.

Communicate with Water Advancement Beacons, to automatically cease irrigation when water reaches a certain location within the furrow.

Create a network of LoRa, RF, Cat-M1 and other EFACs, managed by a Hub and viewed anytime on EnviroDash.

Weir & Penstock Control

Monitor water level and flow to control the direction and movement of water in your system.

1 tonne driver with proportional control with automatic stop on fault and alarm messaging.

Solar powered, with wireless network &/or direct-to-cloud communications.

Form a network of LoRa, RF, Cat-M1 and other EFACs, managed by a Hub and viewed anytime on EnviroDash.

Pump Control

Manage diesel and electric pumps automatically, or remotely via the Cloud and wireless networks.

Use connected pressure and flow readings as triggers for irrigation, communication, and automation events.

Monitor pump efficiency and improve resource use through automated start/stop events.

Automate to stop irrigation based on time, volume and sensor readings.

Form a network of LoRa, RF, Cat-M1 and other devices, managed by a Hub and viewed anytime on EnviroDash.
