Climate Monitoring System T-Warner

T-Warner weather stations are universal devices and provide an early-recognition and warning function; they help to plan, control, and manage complex meteorologically dependent processes. The stations are designed for a variety of different tasks in different climate zones. The T-Warner can be equipped with up to 80 sensors, e.g. sensors for air and soil humidity and temperature, precipitation, wind speed and direction, leaf wetness, global radiation, etc.

The T-Warner instruments transfer measuring data wireless to a safe internet database. This is a perfect platform for data storage and processing. The user gets passwordsecured access to those data from any internet access point all over the world.

No additional software is needed.The T- Warner system only requires a valid GPRS contract for data transfer and sufficient GSM coverage at the station's position.

The T-Warner station is a versatile, modularbased configuration system and operates completely maintenance-free. It is powered by batteries which are recharged by solar energy. Many different sensors can be combined and connected to the station. The plug-and-play-mode even allows an easy subsequent extension of the station with further sensors.

The basic components of the T-warner station are the rugged, stainless steel mounting unit, the GMS-modem with antenna and a solar panel which is connected to a rechargeable battery.

Crop protection

 

Water is a very precious and limited natural resource. By using different sensor technologies for soil moisture measurements (tensiometers, watermark sensors, FDR sensors, etc.) and by taking into account the precipitation, the irrigation can be optimized and controlled in an intelligent way.

T-Warner weather stations send an SMS to up to 8 different phone numbers as soon as certain temperature sensor values are reached. Those threshold values can be set at any time via password-protected internet access.

The temperature alert service can be used for several different applications, e.g. for frost alerts in vineyards, potato growers, etc. Several pre-warning thresholds can be set. Besides frost alert, the heat alert in storerooms and for polytunnel cultivation is another popular application.

The information about air temperature and humidity, precipitation and leaf wetness allow very reliable forecasts of mostly common plant diseases.
