The SNiP-SPW3 is a 'Sensor Node Integrated Package' for LoRaWAN or CAT-M1 communication of real-time plant diameter measurements in relation to real-time weather parameters and Volumetric Soil Water VSW% content (based on capacitance technology) for continuous plant monitoring.
The DBS60 Band Dendrometer is an SDI-12 Band Dendrometer designed to measure short- and long-term changes in stem circumference.
The Atmos-14 monitors microclimate and evapotranspiration via the measurement of Relative Humidity, Barometric Pressure, Air Temperature, and Vapor Pressure with or without a passive radiation shield.
The MP406 provides a measurement on the absolute Volumetric Soil Water % (VSW), based on the Standing Wave, or Amplitude Domain Reflectometry (ADR) measurement principle.
The modular nature of ICT International SNiPs allows for SNiP-SPW3 to be extended with alternative or further parameters – without requiring unique loggers to match each distinct sensor, substantially reducing the cost of getting a fuller picture on the application. The MFR-NODE can support 1x additional sensor to the base package.
The Multifunction Research Node has been designed to provide flexible communication, sensor and power options.
The MFR-NODE supports SDI-12 and 4 x dry contact digital inputs as well as optionally 2x differential / 4x single ended analogue inputs. The MFR-NODE supports 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). Optional CAT-M1 provide an option for remote installation and in areas outside the range existing LoRaWAN networks. The optional multiconstellation GNSS ensures you won’t lose track of your device. The MFR-NODE has an onboard 8GB SD Card to provide data logging capabilities and full data redundancy in the event of temporary loss of communications or dropped packets – ideal for research applications.
The DBS60 is an SDI-12 Band Dendrometer designed to measure short- and long-term changes in stem circumference.
The DBS60 SDI-12 Band Dendrometer is similar to the DBL60, but has a cable for the connection to a SDI-12 Data Logger.
