μMETOS SOIL is a LPWAN weather station that operates on LoRaWAN
or NBIoT network. It can be connected to any existing LoRaWAN
or NBIoT network, if present at your location.
It is designed to monitor basic climate parameters (rain and temperature), soil characteristics (soil moisture, soil temperature and electrical conductivity), as well as water pressure.
μMETOS SOIL can handle various sensors. Data is permanently measured in 5-minute intervals and sent every 15 minutes to the server. All the data is synchronized with
PRODUCT VARIATIONS Communication: Both product variations exist in LoRaWAN ® and NBIoT versions. μMETOS SOIL BASE
A basic μMETOS station with no physical sensors.

Measurement, logging and transmission intervals can be set differently to fit the client’s needs.
Measurement interval: occurrence, when the station measures the attached sensors Logging interval: occurrence, when the station calculates the minimum, maximum and average values of all measurements which happened in this logging interval Transmission interval: occurrence, when the station transmits the stored data from the logging interval to the FieldClimate.
Logging and transmission intervals for LoRaWAN communication-based products are the same.
