weather stations

Meteorological StationEdaphic Scientific weather station solutions range from providing sensors for you to connect to your existing system, a basic stand-alone weather station, or a complete monitoring solution with a weather station alongside other parameters, such as evapotranspiration, soil moisture or water level, with remote download capabilities.

Listed below are some example sensors Edaphic Scientific can supply. We can supply custom designed sensors or sensors with high resolution specifications for your specific project.

 


the “all-in” weather sensor

rain gauges

RaingaugeRain gauges that are suitable for any rainfall type and intensity. Our rain gages can be either ground or mast-mounted to meet the requirements of any weather station installation. Variable catchment areas between 324 and 1000 cm2 are available.

  • Diameter: 200 mm or 357 mm
  • Type: Tipping bucket
  • Resolution: 0.2 mm (0.1 or 0.5 mm optional)
  • Accuracy: Rain intensity 0 to 1 mm/min: ±0.2 mm; 1 to 10 mm / min: ±1%
  • Materials: Aluminium
  • Output: RS-485, pulse
  • Calibration certificate included
  • Heater element available to measure in snow or freezing conditions

 


evapotranspiration

The scientists at Edaphic Scientific can program evapotranspiration (ET) measurements into your weather station. ET will be measured as a virtual parameter. Various ET calculations are available including Penman-Monteith, FAO56-PM, ETo, Priestly-Taylor, with crop factors (k) and variable crop heights.
