The Jabeco JIO or Meerkat Field Module interfaces with soil moisture probes, and transmits the data to a PC hosting the EcoWeb management software. A data logging module, called JLog, retrieves the data at regular intervals.

There are 2 ways to view the data:
By Desktop application:
• The data is uploaded directly to the Desktop Software application, which allows the
user to view multi-layer soil moisture dynamics for the entire root zone.
• The application can export of data for further analysis.
