Details

The NexSens G2-HYDROMET System is an integrated weather station with water quality and level capability. The system measures, logs, and transmits wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity. An optional YSI EXO3 sonde provides a complete suite of water quality measurements. Alternatively, a vented APG PT-500 pressure sensor can be connected for accurate water level data.

G2-HYDROMET is configured through the cellular network using a web browser. Data is wirelessly transmitted to a personalized WQData LIVE web datacenter. Configurable text or email alerts provide real-time notifications to any mobile device or computer. Historical data can be viewed, graphed, and downloaded for further analysis.

With the included solar power pack, data logger, cellular modem and weather station all pre-mounted on a 2" NPT pipe, the G2-HYDROMET can be configured and deployed in just a few minutes. The complete system simply screws onto a 2" diameter pole with NPT pipe threads. All power and sensor cable connections are made using simple thread-in waterproof connectors - no wiring or complicated programming is required.

*To ensure reliable data transmission, confirm the availability of Verizon 3G service at deployment location.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Can I provide my own cellular data service?
No, in order to simplify the setup process, the Verizon cellular account must be setup by NexSens.
Is a paid subscription to WQData LIVE required to use this product?
No, the required WQData LIVE subscription cost is bundled into the Verizon cellular data price, so a separate subscription is not required.
Do I need to purchase an additional cellular antenna?
No, it comes with an SMA whip antenna that works fine in locations with good cellular coverage. If cell signal is weak in the deployment area, the included right angle adapter can be installed to increase signal strength.
Can this product be used in portable monitoring applications?
Yes, the simple design and modular nature of this product allow it to be used in permanent, semi-permanent, or portable monitoring applications.
Does the product come with the multi-parameter sonde or level sensor?
No, the hydrological sensor is not included with the G2-HYDROMET. This is done to provide the user flexibility on the specific type and configuration used.

Weather Bikes Stand Out In Urban Studies, Advance Science Dialogue

Bikes are one of the most time-tested methods of transportation. People have been riding them for centuries. But it has been only recently that folks started strapping on high-tech sensors to turn bikes into mobile labs for studying things like air pollution and the urban heat island effect. These weather bikes provide the ultimate in data collection for some studies. This is because they’re not limited to a specific area. Their riders can weave and dodge through traffic, steer down alleyways or wheel through regions with or without vegetation. There are all sorts of dynamics at play that stationary sensing devices just can’t capture.

Lake Data Buoy Tackles Understudied Champlain

Since the 1990s, manual sampling trips on Lake Champlain have gathered data on its dynamics every few weeks. But the measurements they’ve gleaned are sparse when you consider faster-paced changes that the lake could see in a future of predicted climate upheaval. To help fill that gap and meet a host of other needs, scientists at the State University of New York (SUNY) -- Plattsburgh have deployed a new lake data buoy on the water body. It is only the second such monitoring platform launched in Lake Champlain, after another that logs in Missisquoi Bay. The new cellular data buoy, sitting not far from Valcour Island, is providing previously unavailable data on the lake in real time.

Desert Weather Extremes Create Plant Winners And Losers

Researchers at Arizona State University, studying in the Chihuahan desert of New Mexico, have made some interesting finds related to ecosystem “tipping points.” The term refers to the points at which areas are changed beyond what is typical for them, practically creating new ecosystems where some life forms dominate and others falter. The scientists approached the issue by setting up 50 different study plots in the desert. These were laid out within the Jornada Basin Long Term Ecological Research site and incorporated gear like tipping bucket rain gauges, data loggers and custom constructions that redirected and cut off water as needed for study treatments.
