High precision Environmental Data
EOS Weather Instruments has developed an all new comprehensive Marine Weather observation system that is based on the reliable EOS-1000.
Often Weather conditions are observed different offshore than on land. Due to a lack of offshore environmental observation equipment, up-to-date weather conditions are difficult to tell . Therefore, this system was developed based on the customer’s requests to monitor real-time weather conditions while vessels are underway.
EOS Weather Instruments is pleased to have completed one of the last tests of the new Esoil-100 wireless soil sensor.
This sensor takes the guess work out of crop irrigation and is therefore a very valuable tool for today’s sustainable agriculture. The new Esoil-100 is the latest product developed by EOS that provides soil moisture and soil temperature data directly to the Internet. Up to three soil moisture probes can be connected to the wireless sensor which enables users to obtain soil moisture content values (VWC) at 3 different levels. The soil temperature probe provides accurate soil temperature data.
The compact design of the Esoil-100 allows unobstructed harvesting and other machinery equipment to work around the sensor. The small solar panel and internal battery allows the sensor to be autonomous even during extended days without sunlight. A waterproof connector allows users to disconnect the sensors during the winter without having to dig up the probes.
In a standard configuration, data can be transmitted at 30 or 60 minute intervals over a 200 meter (650 ft) distance* to the EOS-1000 base station. Multiple sensors can be linked to one base station, allowing users to see soil moisture content in different parts of the field. Using the EOS-1000 base station, users have the ability to trigger alarms at user defined values. The Esoil-100 will be available for sale summer 2018.
