Enabling better global research outcomes in soil, plant & environmental monitoring.

ICT Weather Hub

The ICT Weather Hub is a fully featured weather station based on the ICT Universal Telemetry Hub, designed to be pole-mounted or tripod-mounted, ideal for use with the ATMOS 41 or a range of SDI-12 Sensors.

Standard Configuration includes a set of sensors for: Air Temperature, Relative Humidity, Barometric Pressure, Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Rainfall, and Solar Radiation or PAR.

Enclosure: IP67 rated, extruded aluminium – hard anodised body. Moulded UV, moisture and impact resistant endcaps. All external fasteners 316 stainless steel.
Service Hatch: Sealed service hatch provides access to switches, SD and SIM cards and non-waterproof connections.
Solar Panel: 20W. Charge rate automatically adjusts depending on available sunlight.
Data Storage: FAT32, CSV files saved on SDHC cards of up to 32GB capacity.
USB: USB 2.0 Full Speed (12Mbps).
Auxillary Serial Ports: 1x RS485 port, 1x I2C/SPI port.
Battery: 4.9Ah wide temperature range, lithium-ion.
Power Outputs: Dual switched, 4.2V battery voltage at up to 4 Amps OR up to 15V at up to 1 Amp.
External Connections: 5 flexible external IP67 connectors (N-type for wireless or multi-way gold plated for signalling and power). Can be used for communications, sensing, control and/or power output.

ICT Telemetry Hub Service Hatch

The Telemetry Hub is housed in a rugged IP67 enclosure designed for direct field deployment. Complete communications, control and instrumentation or media solutions are packaged in a single unit. Powered by an internal Lithium Ion battery, with a built in solar charge regulator. The Telemetry Hub has a multiprocessor architecture, where the main CPU is a 32 bit, three stage, pipelined ARM Cortex M3 processor with a nested vectored interrupt controller and a high performance DMA controller.

The Telemetry Hub is designed to conserve power when not active and manage activity based on battery charge level. The Telemetry Hub can be fitted with a smart phone sized graphical LCD touchscreen to provide custom user interfaces. It is designed to be easy to open up and service at a basic level, (eg: changing a battery, SD or SIM card or replacing a circuit board.) External connections are made to the Telemetry Hub via IP67 waterproof connectors.

  • ATMOS 41 Weather Station
    The ATMOS-41 is a modular micro-environment "weather station" that has no moving parts and a slim, tubular form factor.
  • Decagon GS3 VWC, Temp + EC
    The GS3 soil moisture, temperature, and EC sensor is the newest sensor in the Decagon system.
    The GS3 measures water content, temperature, and bulk electrical conductivity.
    5m cable.
  • Decagon VP-4 Temp & Humidity
    Relative Humidity, Barometric Pressure, Air Temperature, and Vapour Pressure with or without a passive radiation shield.
  • DS-2 Sonic Anemometer
    The DS-2 is a rugged, research-grade two-dimensional sonic anemometer. Especially well-suited for measuring wind within plant canopies, where wind speeds are often below the threshold of a cup anemometer. Resolution of 0.01 m/s.
    Wind speed and direction. 5m cable.
  • SP-421 SDI-12 Silicon-cell Pyranometer
    The SP-421 is a digital sensor with SDI-12 communication protocol. The sensor incorporates a silicon-cell photodiode with a rugged, self-cleaning sensor housing design. Typical applications include shortwave radiation measurement in agricultural, ecological, and hydrological weather networks. Sensors are also used to optimise photovoltaic systems.
