LoRATH - METOS by Pessl instruments

LoRATH is a new generation of weather stations that operate on LoRaWAN® or NBIoT network. It can be connected to any existing LoRaWAN® or NBIoT network, if present at your location.

LoRATH measures air temperature, relative humidity and soil moisture. All the data is synchronized with FieldClimate.

PRODUCT VARIATIONS

Communication: Both product variations exist in LoRaWAN® and NBIoT versions.

LoRATH

Air temperature, air humidity and virtual sensors: dew point, VPD and Delta T.

LoRATH SOIL

Air temperature, air humidity, soil moisture and virtual sensors: dew point, VPD and Delta T.

 

This is what you can do:

• Plan the work week based on a localised weather forecast for your operations site

• Plan your work day based on the actual rain and temperature data and the daily weather forecast for your field

• Plan your spray program based on disease models and prediction and check the quality of spray work online

• Plan your irrigation based on ET-crop and predicted plant water use

• Bring data directly into your management software and Operations Center via automatic interface

 
 

LoRATH IS DESIGNED TO BE EASILY CONNECTED TO AN EXISTING LoRaWAN® NETWORK. FOR REMOTE SITUATIONS WITHOUT THE AVAILABILITY OF A COMMERCIALLY OPERATED LoRaWAN® NETWORK PESSL INSTRUMENTS PARTNERS WILL SUPPORT YOU WITH A FARM BASED LoRaWAN® NETWORK WHICH ENABLES YOU TO INSTALL ALL AVAILABLE LoRa® SENSORS – FROM PESSL INSTRUMENTS OR OTHER VENDORS.

 

 

 

BY USING THE PROPRIETARY INTELLIGENT SENSOR HANDLING, THE LoRATH PROVIDES VALUES OF:

• Leaf wetness for disease forecast,
• VPD and Delta T for defining best weather for spraying (spray window),
• Dew point for frost prediction.
