The ML-315 datalogger is a small, ultra low power, high-end datalogger with built-in 3G modem, capable of emailing data files, as well as uploading data to webservers via FTP and TCP.
Data is stored and sent in .csv format.
The integrated solar panel and rechargeable batteries allow the ML-315 to operate continuously without maintenance, perfect for remote installations.
Data can be sent automatically to the email address of your choice, or uploaded automatically to any web server via FTP or TCP.
Remote data access and delivery requires a SIM card.
The ML-315 is a simple self-contained datalogger with an integrated solar panel. This makes it perfect for use as a weather station.
ICT can provide an external breakout box to more easily connect SDI-12 or RS485 sensors to the ML-315.
An example weather station setup could be:
Decagon VP-3, relative humidity, temperature and vapour pressure.
Decagon DS-2 Sonic Anemometer – Wind speed, Direction and Temperature.
SP-214 Pyranometer – Global shortwave radiation.
MPS-6 Soil water potential.
