LORIX One and MeteoHelix IoT Pro solution for professional meteorological and agricultural applications

New product spotlight at the Meteo Expo 2019 in Gevena Switzerland

LORIX One LoRaWAN Gateway detail.

BARANI DESIGN Technologies in cooperation with Wifx Sàrl from Switzerland with showcase a professional meteorological wireless solution designed for areas with limited GSM/LTE coverage. This low-bandwidth wireless meteorological system requires very low data rates as typical of mountainous regions and rural or outback locations. These remote locations where meteorological data is scarce but critical for accurate weather prediction for nearby population centers are currently serviced by costly satellite data services. Now remote meteorological data coverage is attainable for a few hundred dollars wherever GSM/LTE or Wifi is available.

BARANI DESIGN Technologies in cooperation with HELIOT SA, the Sigfox wireless network operator in Switzerland and Austria will showcase a professional meteorological wireless solution designed for areas with limited or non-existent GSM/LTE coverage. This low-bandwidth wireless meteorological system requires very low data rates as typical of mountainous regions and rural or outback locations. These remote locations where meteorological data are scarce are also critical for accurate weather prediction for nearby population centers and are currently only serviced by costly satellite data. Thanks to Sigfox and HELIOT SA, remote wireless coverage for meteorological data will now be available for a few hundred dollars wherever GSM/LTE or Wifi is not available.

MeteoHelix weather stations installed to monitor new frost protection technology experiment in famous Vienna Wine School

Three MeteoHelix micro-weather stations were installed to monitor new technology experiment to help prevent frost on budding wine grape plans at the renowned Hö­he­re Bun­des­lehr­an­stalt viticulture school in Klosterneuburg near Vienna, Austria. These precision weather stations are powered by the sun and connected to the Sensor Network Services GmbH LoRaWAN wireless network to provide critical real-time information to help evaluate the success of this new technology. Differentiated by their helical shape, they are able to provide world class measurements for a fraction of the cost of comparable accuracy meteorological technologies.

The variability of weather over the recent decade has caused grape wine damage in the millions of euros each year due to frost. This experiment is very significant due to the fact that it sits within a vast wine region stretching for hundreds of kilometers from the Tokaj of southern Slovakia and northern Hungary to the southern Moravia region of the Czech republic and all the way to the Vienna region known for its wine schools and superb white wine production.
