New Product Post: IIoT Sensors and Weather Station

After the Spring Festival we are back with a New Product Post to keep you up to date with all the new products in the industrial IoT category.

Earlier we introduced the SenseCap LoRaWAN gateways and LoRaWAN sensors that can be used with the gateways. Our most recent additions were Optical Rain Gauge RG-15, Optical Rain Gauge RG-9, NDIR CO2 Sensor, The Things Indoor LoRaWAN WiFi Gateway based on SX1308, as well as the new LoRa-E5 Module.

Since then we have added even more sensors, so let’s have a look at what is new in the Industrial IoT category on our shop:

ECTDS Sensor:

ECTDS sensor measures the Electric Conductivity, salinity, and Total Dissolved Solids of a liquid. The sensor is robust enough to be submerged in water for a long time and is built to resist corrosion. If that is not enough there is also a cover included that has an IP68 rating. The output can be either the MODBUS-RTU RS485 serial communications protocol or simple voltage output. This makes the sensor easy to install and integrate with other devices such as data loggers, controllers, and displays. The applications for this sensor include agriculture, sewage treatment, research, and environmental monitoring.

SenseCAP ORCH S4 Four-In-One Weather Sensors:

The new S4 weather station is equipped with multiple sensors to measure:

  • Air Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Light

It is easy to install and has ultra-low power consumption. Its shell is IP66 certified protecting the sensors from rain, dust, and UV so that the ORCH S4 can operate in harsh conditions indoors as well as outdoors.
The built-in data pre-processing makes the integration into a wider system easy and convenient. Possible applications include smart agriculture and smart cities.

Special Offer: We offer DHL free shipping for this product on Feb 24th ~ Mar 5th, 2021! Grab one (or more) especially while the promotion is available!

PAR Sensor:

Two versions of PAR Sensor measuring photoactive radiation (PAR) are coming soon! PAR is the visible part of the light spectrum (400nm to 700nm) and is needed by plants to grow. Because of that, the application is often in agriculture to make sure plants receive the ideal amount of light at the right wavelength. Similar to other industrial-grade sensors, the PAR sensor can be installed outdoor and will survive all weather conditions.

The output measures the intensity of the natural light in μmol/m2*s. Its horizontal base makes it easy to install and it can be connected to data collectors, data acquisition cards, remote acquisition modules, and other equipment to integrate into a bigger system. Besides Agriculture, the PAR Sensor can be used in solar research, optical research, and environmental monitoring. Our PAR sensor is confirmed to have two different versions. We will provide you more details about this product once it is available!
