Equipped with precision sensors, SmartVineyard stations capture the most accurate weather data
Portable LHT sensor integrates leaf moisture, humidity and temperature sensors
Electromechanical precipitation sensor with 0.001 mm resolution
Integrated communication system that allows wireless communication with additional stations.
’Easy Deployment Program’ to enable viticulturists to install SmartVineyard™ systems regardless of their location without any IT or engineering skills in no more than fifteen minutes.
Our devices accurately measure microclimates of 5-8 hectares
The leaf wetness sensor measures the amount of surface moisture on the foliage. It captures information on precipitation, dew, frost and rime. The sensor measures wetness on a scale of 0-15. At this scale 0 means dry leaves and 15 represents continuous moisture. This way multiple transition states can be measured.
This is a simple, yet accurate and reliable electromechanical sensor: resolution can achieve 0.001 mm.
The intensity and duration of sunshine is measured indirectly from the amount of electrical voltage generated by the solar panel. In addition the solar panel provides the central unit energy and charges the battery.
Using this sensor various (humidity and temperature related) weather parameters (e.g. freezing-point) can be measured every minute.
The central unit of our precision viticulture devices contain the battery pack of the station, and the controller microcomputer with all of its components.
Our precision viticulture stations are equipped with micro SD cards that are capable of storing extensive amount of measurement data. All measured data are uploaded to the webserver (for the prediction algorithms) via GSM data link.
