Goanna Telemetry provides two distinct models of Weather Station.

Our Nimbus Weather Station is the more affordable option. Utilising Next G technology to provide regularly updated information at 10 minute intervals directly to our database and website.

Our Cumulus Weather Station is the complete package. It has the ability to not only provide valuable meteorological data regularly but it can also act as a base station for moisture probe units utilising UHF radio. This is particularly useful in areas where Next G range is limited and therefore unsuitable for our Next G moisture probe units. 

All weather stations have the following qualities:

  • Designed and built to last a lifetime
  • High quality sensors for accuracy
  • Solar powered for location anywhere
  • Scheduled maintenance programs for reliability
  • Easy Data access through the Next G™ Network
  • Competitively priced for affordability

This unit is our more economical one, as it does not have additional UHF radios for collecting additional unit data. The sensors are incorporated in a single solid state unit ensuring this machine's long life, without excessive maintenance. The Nimbus Weather station has a GPS incorporated into its weather sensor, allowing the unit to self calibrate and provide data with the highest level of accuracy.

The AIRMAR MN150 weather sensor used on our Nimbus units is capable of collecting all valuable meterological data including; air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, Delta T, dew point and barometric pressure. Optional sensors are also available to collect soil temperature and solar radition data, at an additional cost.

The PRONAMIC Rain-O-Matic Professional Rain Gauge found on our Nimbus Weather Stations are accurate to 0.2mm +/- 2%. These rain gauges have been used in various applications all over the world, and have been tried and tested by many organisations including the Danish Ministry for Agriculture.

A full featured  weather station that has a full suite of instruments that will collect  all meteorological data.  It also has an on board radio that can poll other sensors on your farm within a 10 to 15 km radius and store this information as well. This includes remote rain gauges, soil moisture probes, dam monitors and Mace meters.  All the data is stored on board the weather station and transmitted to our central server at regular intervals.

This is the ideal station for larger properties that may have many sensor devices, where Next G service is marginal. The remote sensors do not need to be in Next G service to transmit data. High gain antennas can be installed on the weather station to enable data to be sent back to the server.

Research quality sensors are used in all Goanna Telemetry units. Ensuring the highest accuracy, no matter the environmental conditions.
All Goanna Telemetry units are professionally sealed to protect all parts from vermin, dust and moisture.
