LoRATH

A simple weather stations
for your farm

LoRATH - header

LoRATH weather station can be connected to any existing LoRaWAN® network, if present at your location. LoRATH measures air temperature, relative humidity, leaf wetness and soil moisture.

The unit is prepared to be mounted inside (tunnels, greenhouses, indoor applications) or outside in open fields (IP65). All the data is synchronized with FieldClimate.

LoRATH connectivity

LoRATH connectivity

LoRATH is designed to be easily connected to an existing LoRaWAN® network. For remote situations without the availability of a commercially operated LoRaWAN® network Pessl Instruments partners will support you with a farm based LoRaWAN® network which enables you to install all available LoRa® sensors – from Pessl Instruments or other vendors.

LoRATH values

By using the proprietary intelligent sensor handling, the LoRATH provides values of:

  • Leaf wetness for disease forecast,
  • VPD and Delta T for defining best weather for spraying (spray window) and
  • Dew point for frost prediction.
