Enabling better global research outcomes in soil, plant & environmental monitoring.

SNiP-MC24

The SNiP-MC24 is 'Sensor Node Integrated Package' for LoRaWAN or CAT-M1 communication of real-time weather parameters within a microclimate atmospheric zone for continuous environmental monitoring of a particular site.

SNiP-MC24

The base SNiP-MC24 integrates 1x S-NODE and two sensors to a site’s unique network, communication and power requirements: 1x AWS200 Automatic Weather Station, and 1x ATH-2S Ambient Temperature & Humidity (SDI-12) Sensor.

The AWS200 is a wind monitoring station, providing a measurement on wind direction and wind speed, with high precision, fast response time and configurable sampling periods.

The ATH-2S provides a measurement on Ambient Temperature & Humidity, and with a far higher accuracy drift of better than ±2% Relative Humidity. Another substantial development of the ATH-2 Series design is the removable sensor chip, which can be quickly swapped out in the field for a price far lower than the typical calibration or complete replacement. The ATH-2 Series instrument does not need to be fully removed from the site, freighted and then reinstalled for simple calibration maintenance. This advancement significantly reduces the time, hassle and costs associated with avoiding data gaps and maintaining long-term data integrity.

Further parameters can be added to the SNiP, without requiring loggers to match each distinct sensor, substantially reducing the cost of getting a fuller picture on the application. The S-NODE can support 2x additional sensors to the base package.

S-NODE

The S-NODE (for Environmental Monitoring) has been designed to support the broad suite of SDI-12 based environmental sensors. The S-NODE can support sensors with higher power requirements; a solar panel can charge either the internal lithium-ion battery or both the node and sensor can be powered by an external 12V system (e.g. battery or mains source).

A decoder suitable for TTN will be provided based upon sensor configuration.

  • LoRaWAN™ low-power long-range connectivity
  • Supports the full range of SDI-12 commands, and sensors requiring constant excitation.
  • Optional CAT-M1
  • Solar rechargeable Lithium-ion or external 12V power options
  • Optional Multi-constellation GNSS
  • AS923, AU915 and US915 available, with other region plans available upon request.
  • Standard IP65 enclosure, optional IP67
