WHO: Dan Steele Business Development Executive FreeWave Technologies, Inc. ( Daniel G. Steele is a business development executive at FreeWave Technologies, Inc. Steele has more than 25 years experience selling SCADA networks for the water and waste water, oil and gas, electric utilities, railroad, traffic and process control instrumentation markets. Some of Dan's previous work experience includes working as a system integrator; as a branch manager for Water Works Equipment; as a regional sales manager for Rockwell Automation; as a regional area manager for Microwave Data Systems; and, as a senior vice president of sales for Bluewave Antenna Systems. Founded in 1993, FreeWave Technologies is a world leader in the innovative design and manufacture of license-free spread spectrum and licensed band radios and wireless data solutions that are trusted for mission critical applications around the world. WHAT: "Using Wireless Networking and Remote Sensor Monitoring in Pivot Irrigation" As technology is becoming more affordable to both private and corporate farms, the use of telemetry technologies not only is creating value to businesses but being utilized in new ways. The latest telemetry trend is "wireless instrumentation" or the ability to control or monitor analog and digital signals without the constraints of wire. These signals may be used to communicate to and from the pivot to the farm to check moisture and temperature sensors, chemical soil samples, wind speed for the best time to water, and the actual pivot location and pump power usage. This capability, together with Internet access, allows the entire pivot system to be viewed anytime via a smart telephone. Steele will review how to efficiently and affordably track data for pivot irrigation farms, as well as weigh the pros and cons of newer versus traditional systems of operation.
