Waspmote Agriculture Sensor Board PRO
The Waspmote Agriculture 2.0 Board PRO allows you to monitor multiple environmental parameters involving a wide range of applications, from growth development analysis to weather observation. For this, supports sensors for air and soil temperature and humidity, luminosity, solar visible radiation, wind speed and direction, rainfall, atmospheric pressure, leaf wetness and fruit or trunk diameter (dendrometers). Up to 15 sensors can be connected at the same time.
With the objective of extending the durability of the device after the deployment, the board is endowed with a solid-state switches system that facilitates a precise regulation of its power, prolonging the life of the battery.
This board plugs into a Waspmote main board. Sensors are not included! See a list of sensors below. Each available sensor can plug into the Agriculture Sensor Board PRO via on-board sockets or remotely via Phoenix push-in terminals (i.e. so you can build a probe cable to connect to the board).
The board supports the following kinds of sensors:
- Air Temperature / Humidity
- Soil Temperature / Moisture
- Leaf Wetness
- Atmospheric Pressure
- Solar Radiation - PAR
- Ultraviolet Radiation - UV
- Trunk Diameter
- Stem Diameter
- Fruit Diameter
- Wind Vane
The lower picture shows the Agriculture Sensor Board PRO with several sensors installed, for illustration only. All sensors are sold separately. See the Optional Recommended Products list at the bottom of this page.
Application Ideas You can combine several sensors together to make a single device for specialized applications, such as:
- Precision Agriculture — Leaf temperature, fruit diameter
- Irrigation Systems — Soil moisture, leaf wetness
- Greenhouses — Solar radiation, humidity, temperature
- Weather Stations — Anemometer, wind vane, pluviometer
The board measures 73.5 × 51 × 1.3 mm so it fits nicely on your Waspmote. The operating temperature range is -20 to +65 °C (but the range of individual sensors varies).
