Pessl Instruments Announces the Launch of iMETOS LoRAIN weather station!

Pessl Instruments is excited to announce the launch of a new class of weather station. The iMETOS LoRAIN, with real time measurement in your own field for rain, temperature and relative humidity, is the most essential sensor set for your farm operation. This affordable precision farming equipment is compact, easy to use and lasts forever.

iMETOS LoRAIN was developed with 35 years of experience and you will never miss the spray window, overuse the fertilizer or let the disease take control of your field again. The station measures the most essential weather parameters (temperature, relative humidity and rainfall), calculates many more with the help of eight virtual sensors and as a result becomes an indispensable decision support system for every farmer. It has an everlasting energy source in the form of a solar panel and works whenever the minimum of sunlight is available. The collected data is sent via LoRaWAN network to the FieldClimate platform, where it can be reached, with the help of a mobile app, from anywhere, anytime. The system is equipped with an auto cleaning mechanism which makes maintenance simple and fast. Everlasting energy source. Always within arm’s reach. Durable. All this, and more, is iMETOS LoRAIN.

Founder and CEO of Pessl Instruments, Gottfried Pessl, explains: “The digital age is here and it has penetrated into every aspect of our lives. At Pessl Instruments we understand the advantages of technology and its importance for intelligent and pro-active farming. To provide the best user-experience we constantly approve our products and services and collaborate with leading industry providers as well to achieve that. We can say that iMETOS LoRAIN is the easiest way to get familiar with smart-farming. It will help farmers to overcome the skepticism and let the technology support them in optimizing all the activities they do on a daily basis.”

Gottfried, will be speaking at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit, in San Francisco and he’ll be joining the discussion on How Should We Be Applying Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Agriculture? on March 19 at 2.30pm.
