The precipitation sensor measures rainfall using a patented self-emptying single spoon tipping bucket system.
The spoon is made from a dismissive material (POM) which prevents most dust and dirt from sticking on the spoon while also maximizing water release to ensure accuracy down to the last drop.
The spoon tips for every 5 grams of precipitation and has a resolution fine-tuned all the way down to 0.25 mm. The precision of our measurements combined with the power of our processing allows us to measure at an accuracy of ±2% - among the very best on the market.
With a wind sensor at crop-level, you always get precise and relevant measurements. Because other services measure at 10 meters above ground, but that's not where your crops are, so why rely on weather data measured there?
The sensor itself is made from aluminium alloy with a polyester coating - a combination that’s much sturdier than alternatives, without sacrificing the sensitivity of the measurements.
It measures all the way from 0.5 m/s to 50 m/s with a resolution of 0.01 m/s and with an outstanding accuracy of ±0.5% at speeds below 5 m/s and ±3% at speeds between 5 and 50 m/s.
The Cordulus weather station measures 3 parameters:
Hidden inside the Stevenson Screen, the sensors are sheltered from the interference of other weather conditions on the final measurements.
They are extremely compact and energy efficient - and that's without sacrificing precision even in the slightest.
The soil temperature cable is armored in a metallic mesh to prevent rodents from gnawing through the cord.
It's fitted with a red depth marker to make sure that installation is always an easy and intuitive process.
Weather stations just have to work. All the time. That's why we chose to send the collected data from the weather station to the app through a tried and tested GSM network which relies on public infrastructure.
It's also equipped with a GPS module which means that it is always trackable - meaning that connecting your weather station to the field it's installed on is a simple and quick process. And that also means that it's protected against theft with the precise tracking module. .
The weather station runs on solar power and a smart charging system that keeps the battery working at maximum efficiency.
It can survive on a single charge for weeks and it takes just 8 sunny hours to fully recharge the battery from empty.
Moreover, with a flexible battery charge that changes depending on the weather, the battery is kept in top condition throughout its lifetime.
