HWM have secured an important weather monitoring contract in the Philippines, installing forty data loggers for the Sugar Regulatory Administration. For this installation, the COMLog was chosen for its ability to receive sensor information from a variety of sources, including Temperature, Humidity, Solar Radiation, Air Pressure and Precipitation measurement.
HWM’s COMLog has been connected to a number of different weather sensors, creating a unique and flexible piece of equipment that can measure multiple factors. The Sugar Regulatory Administration have numerous plantations throughout the Philippines each requiring local weather monitoring. With help from the COMLog, these weather stations now have the ability to receive and transmit accurate data almost instantaneously.
The COMLog communicates with the sensors using a SDI12 serial link, connecting via digital input for the rain gauge. HWM have also engineered in a solar panel controller and battery to enable 15-minute data transmission, ensuring data is always available
Alongside the data logger, HWM also installed local software, providing users a display through which they can view the data that is being transmitted via the COMLog. This data can be accessed remotely via any software enabled device (PC, laptop, tablet) so The Sugar Regulatory Administration can access their data where- ever and whenever they wish.
With the success of this weather monitoring project, HWM are now investigating the potential for adding a soil moisture monitoring feature to the COMLog data logger further enhancing the flexibility of this data monitoring solution.
