iMETOS 3.3

Who knows if that forecasted precipitation will do more harm than good? Metos knows.

iMETOS 3.3

The iMETOS 3.3 is the ultimate weather station, giving you the most complete view of the conditions in your field.

A POWERFUL, FLEXIBLE WEATHER STATION FOR SOPHISTICATED IN-FIELD MONITORING

iMETOS 3.3 monitors data with a variety of sensors giving you near real-time, weather-related site conditions including: temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, leaf wetness, solar radiation, and wind speed and direction.

The station has a built-in modem for direct communication with FieldClimate. It captures localized forecasts and data that are regularly uploaded to the FieldClimate software, so you get near real-time information wherever you are.

The iMETOS 3.3’s durable and flexible design can withstand the harsh Canadian climate. It’s efficiently powered by a rechargeable battery and a solar panel, and is extremely reliable due to non-volatile internal memory that can store up to 8MB of logged data. Along with accessing your historical data, you can also take advantage of decision support solutions like weather forecast, spray forecast, disease models and irrigation management.

With the ability to handle up to 600 sensors, you chose which configuration of crop sensors will give you the most complete view of your field conditions. The iMETOS 3.3 can even send text alerts in case of frost, strong rain, high temperature and more.

Measurement, logging and transmission intervals can be customized to fit the client’s needs.

Measurement interval: occurrence, when the station measures the attached sensors Logging interval: occurrence, when the station calculates the minimum, maximum and average values of all measurements which happened in this logging interval

Transmission interval: occurrence, when the station transmits the stored data from the logging interval to the FieldClimate.
