LoRaWAN Industrial Grade Weather Station

The MetOne MSO multi-parameter weather sensor can be combined with the SRG0 stainless steel tipping bucket rain gauge to produce an industrial grade LoRaWAN weather station.

  • 13Ah internal lithium-ion rechargeable battery provides power for up to a week with no sun
  • 11W solar panel
  • Conventional cup and vane measurement of wind speed and direction
  • Multi-plate radiation shield to reduce solar radiation heating errors.
  • Solid-state relative humidity sensor
  • Platinum RTD temperature sensor
  • Piezo-resistive barometric pressure sensor designed for high accuracy and long term stability
  • Stainless steel rain gauge, 0.2mm tips
  • Rain Gauge accuracy of ±2% at 500 mm/hr

The node can be optionally outfitted with an SP-421 Pyranometer to measure solar radiation, and/or a TEROS 12 Soil Moisture sensor.

The MSO is an integrated 5-parameter Weather Station. Wind Speed and Wind Direction are measured using conventional cup and vane techniques. All other measurements are housed in a multi-plate naturally aspirated radiation shield to reduce solar radiation heating errors. The shield consists of a series of concentric white aluminium plates, which allow air to flow through the shield while blocking direct solar rays.

The temperature sensor is a platinum RTD. Relative humidity is a based on our accurate solid state sensor designed for continuous exposure to adverse climates. The barometric pressure sensor is a robust piezo-resistive device featuring high accuracy and long term stability.

The MSO serial output can include data from an optional tipping bucket rain gauge.
