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


The SNiP-SA2 is 'Sensor Node Integrated Package' for LoRaWAN or CAT-M1 communication of real-time wind direction and wind speed for continuous environmental monitoring of a particular site.

SNiP-SA2 Package:

The base SNiP-SA2 package integrates 1x S-NODE and 1x AWS200 Automatic Weather Station to a site’s unique network, communication and power requirements. 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.

This SNiP also includes:

  • a sensor mounting bracket;
  • 1x 6.5Ah rechargeable li-ion battery;
  • 1x 10W Solar Panel; and
  • 1x SPLM7 mounting system for node and solar panel.


See Further Specifications on the S-NODE
See Further Specifications on the AWS200 Automatic Weather Station

The modular nature of ICT International SNiPs allows for SNiP-SA2 to be extended with added sensors to measure rainfall and solar radiation. 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 an added 3x Sensors.


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
