Climate change and evolving weather patterns create more uncertainty for agriculture. EOS systems provide the ability to predict and plan using the most data available.
More areas have become very dry and rely more on irrigation to maintain yields. Our Esoil-100 can provide the soil moisture content at two different levels, as well as the soil temperature. This data is transmitted wirelessly to the main EOS-1000AD and updated at 30 minute intervals. Up to four Esoil-100s can be installed in larger fields to provide a complete picture of the farming operation.
The EOS-1000 is an advanced all-in-one weather station, which collects and remotely displays environmental data from multiple high precision sensors.
An on-board Linux-based processor stores data, which can be viewed online or uploaded to a remote customer database. Optionally, we offer data storage and viewing via our secure EOS Cloud.
All external components are made from the highest quality UV-stabilized ABS, high-grade aluminum, and stainless steel. The optional LTE cellular interface allows users to collect data from remote locations such as agricultural sites, highways, energy sites (re-usable) or any other site which lacks a reliable internet connection.
Built-in sensors monitor the health of EOS-1000 to display battery condition and internal temperature. The unit has a tamper alarm to provide an alert when the housing has been accessed.
A high resolution all-weather webcam can be added for visual reference of weather conditions and other useful images from the site.
Our modular concept provides the ability to create a system that meets the customers requirements. Data from multiple sensors are connected to the DCU unit. The data from these sensors will be uploaded in real time to the EOS cloud and will also be stored in a local database as well as a local backup.
In addition to environmental data, the EOS system collects data such as battery voltage, door status (tamper contact), and internal temperature. Several spare analog channels can be used for non standard, or customer supplied sensors.
Inside the EOS1000 housing is a small LCD display. This display provides all vital information that might be needed to set up the station or obtain data to troubleshoot when no computer is present. Inside the same housing there is a small lithium battery to provide power for three hours in case of a power failure.
The SD slot contains the card with the Linux operating system. This allows a quick and easy swap out for upgrades and trobleshooting. The USB connection is used for the backup storage device. All data is backup on this USB mass storage. Ample space is available to add additional modules such as a camera module and a 3G/4G modem.
With many power and communication options, the EOS stations can be installed at multiple locations.

This is our standard wind speed and direction unit. The WU250 wind anemometer is made from high grade stainless steel and composite acetal. High precision, low friction hybrid ball bearings ensure accurate readings for both wind speed and direction. Electronic components are of the highest quality, employing both Triaxes© and magnetic Hall Sensors to ensure a constant measurement.
Our standard module provides temperature, humidity, and pressure readings. The high accuracy sensors ensure reliable, high quality data collection. In additional to the measured data, the powerful EOS software calculates the following:
- Relative Pressure
- Windchill (wind module must be connected)
|Temperature and Pressure|
|Temperature Range||-40°C to +80°C (-40°F to +175°F)|
|Temperature Accuracy||+/-0.25°C (0.45°F)|
|Temperature Resolution||0.1°C (0.18°F)|
|Pressure Range||750-1100 mBar (22.14-32.48 inHg)|
|Pressure Accuracy||+/- 0.5 mBar (0.014 inHg)|
|Pressure Resolution||0.1 mBar (0.003 inHg)|
|Range||0 to 100% Rel. Humidity|
Diseases and infections can destroy an entire crop, but at the same time, applying fungicides is costly and time-consuming. If you’re deciding when to spray by monitoring leaf wetness with a resistance grid sensor, you’ll have trouble accurately determining wetness duration without a lot of extra work. Our leaf wetness sensor lets you know leaf wetness in no uncertain terms. It measures both the onset and duration of wetness on a simulated leaf, which in turn predicts when the onset of certain diseases or infections may occur.
Our solar module measures solar luminosity and radiation levels. The EOS software will calculate the percentage of cloud cover based on the maximum solar amount that can be expected, based on almanac data. This module also provides a calculation of the hours of full sunlight received during each day.
|Range||0 to 1200 W/m²|
|Spectral Range||400 nm to 1100 nm|
Unlike the traditional "tipping bucket" style sensor, our optical rain sensor, senses water hitting the outside surface. The rugged sensor is very sensitive and begins to providd data as soon as water is detected.
ESOIL-100 DATA SHEET
The ESOIL-100 is an advanced wireless soil moisture sensor for autonomous service, allowing remote access to data on your digital devices.
Our digital high precision ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor is an alternative to the typical mechanical system.
Although our optical rain sensor has many benefits, the accuracy is slightly less than a tipping style rain bucket. EOS Weather instruments can provide this type as an option.
In addition to the data collected by the SU40, the SU50 has the added capability to collect UV-A (240nm~ 370nm) data.
|Range||0 to 12 index|
|Spectral Range||280 nm to 360 nm (UV-A)m|
A picture is worth a lot "of data". Adding a camera to our system provides real time visual reference and discourages vandalism or unauthorized tampering.
