Chestnut Farm Monitoring with ThingSpeak

Posted by Hans Scharler,

On a Chestnut farm in New Zealand, you will find a bit of technology to help protect a bore pump. [Andrew] has created a pump monitor based on a PICAXE microcontroller, IR counter, and wireless connection to report the pump status remotely to ThingSpeak. He wanted to know if the pump was running too long and the only way to know definitively was to monitor the pump and save historical data. If the pump is running too long, the pump would be damaged and use more power than its fair share.
