Application example: Self-sufficient measuring field station
Pedological-meteorological measuring station
How do rising sea levels and a change in precipitation, as a consequence of global warming, influence aeration and drainage of lime marshland?
Autarkic measuring field station + fully automated pedological-meteorological measuring station on the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein, off-grid with data transmission, ca. 3 km away from the North Sea.
- Connection of redox electrodes via 3 redox-connecting modules; in total 48 parameters are recorded with 1 Data logger, the enviLog Maxi
- Fully automated daily data transmission via GPRS to ecoTech-Server
- An e-mail message is then sent including data attachment to e-mail address of the user
- All components require very little maintenance; solar panel allows year round off-grid service
