IoT Weather Stations

µMETOS NB-IoT

μMETOS NB-IoT is a LPWAN weather station that operates on NB-IoT network.

It is designed to monitor basic climate parameters (rain and temperature), soil characteristics (soil moisture, soil temperature and electrical conductivity), as well as water pressure.

Data is consistently measured in 15-minute intervals and sent every 60 minutes to the server. All the data is synchronized with FieldClimate.

MiniMETOS SOIL

MiniMETOS SOIL is a combination of most essential sensors for irrigation and stress management.

It permanently measures soil temperature & volumetric water content (VWC) with Pessl Instruments Soil Moisture Sensor PI54-D and Watermark (soil moisture suction) in near real-time wherever you want. The installation of a logger can be completely underground (invisible); therefore, it is a perfect installation for golf courses, parks, home & garden, as well as in agriculture where vandalism and theft could be a problem.

The device is battery powered with an autonomy between 1 to 2 years, and provides actionable data, such as the exact amount of moisture and the soil temperature in each inch/cm of the measurement area, to help you plan the irrigation event and to warn you about possible stress points in a timely fashion.

With MiniMETOS SOIL all the potential issues and stress events can be identified before they occur or become visible.

Features:
  • Permanent measurement of the soil moisture and soil temperature at any of your locations
  • Invisible, so it doesn’t affect the workers and the aesthetic of location (golf course, park etc.)
  • No solar panel needed as fully battery powered due latest power harvesting technology
  • 1-2 years of battery autonomy and quick installation
  • Cost-effective and durable
  • Prevents possible vandalism
