It has been some time since any updates were posted on development of the Evaporimeter device designed to remotely transmit evaporation data via LoRa transmission to a central receiver and then to an internet hub. There have been A LOT of changes – so many additions and revisions to the overall design that perhaps now it is best to introduce the Evaporimeter as an entirely new model with an expanded focus on reporting data for a multitude of environmental factors.
And now introducing the OPEnS Lab’s “newest” take on the remote sensing…
The aim of our transmitters is to become as powerful and “invisible” to the surrounding environment as possible. To achieve this we have added and removed various components to make our sensors more efficient and send a wider range of data. Here is a breakdown of all components attached to our new transmitter.
– Our battery was also replaced from 1000 mAh to a larger 2000 mAh one, allowing us to leave the sensors in the field undisturbed for a longer period of time.
More updates on the new transmitter and a discussion on our sensor’s potential use for wide range of studies to come.
Another post describing the results of field testing on the Evaporimeter equipped with RTC and sensors will be posted hopefully by the end of next week.
