AGRICULTURE

OVERVIEW


AGRO Weather Station has been designed to transfer up-to-date information about soil moisture, rainfall level, relative humidity and temperature readings, wind conditions and many more depending on the sensor used. 

The standard data transmission is every 10 minutes and in case real-time data is required it can be changed to 1 minute intervals. Together with the dedicated online data analysis system and wide range of tailor-made masts the AGRO Weather Station has everything it needs for modern and professional farming.

SYSTEM


AGRO Weather Station sends data via GSM/GPRS modem with 1 or 10 minute data intervals to enable maximum control over all important measurements. The data is stored in the cloud based system which is  accessible by a web browser. The Online Data Monitoring System presents the recorded values on multifunctional graphs and diagrams with the access to all historical data.  There is no need for additional software installation.

Easily definable alarms are a great help when fast respond is required. If the chosen value exceeds the selected level, you will be informed about that fact by an email. Immediate notification will give you time needed to react adequately to the situation.

MASTS


Every AGRO Weather Station and sensors can be installed on tailor made aluminum masts fitted to the requirements of a particular crop monitoring system. The masts offered by PM Ecology are available from 2 up to 20m height and come with a variety of bases and additional elements such as crossarms or sensor holders.

Every weather station provided by PM Ecology is an all-in-one set easily installed on-site. 

POWER SUPPLY


Almost every weather station for agricultural use is installed in a remote location without the access to the grid. Having that in mind, Wind2measure prepared a solar power supply system that enables the AGRO Station to operate all year long. The system consists of a PV panel, 12V 18Ah battery and a solar charger. The elements can be placed in a specially designed metal mount box.

Additionally, each data logger is equipped with one 2 x DD (R20) battery slot which may function as back-up power source for up to 20 days in case of a main power supply malfunction. Constant monitoring of the both power sources in the Data Monitoring System ensures high security level against the loss of the measurement data.

SENSORS


The station is prepared to work with up to 8 environmental sensors with voltage, current, pulse or SDI-12 type output. Just select the set of sensors from the ones provided by PM Ecology or use other ones compatible with the station

Various types of sensors offered by PM Ecology include:

* ​wind speed
* wind direction
* ambient temperature
* relative humidity (RH)
* rainfall
* air pressure
* solar radiation
