MeteoShield becomes part of an Award-nominated Precision Agriculture Solution by 30MHz HQ

MeteoSHield Professional in testing as part of 30MHz HQ Precision Agro sensor solution

MeteoSHield Professional in testing as part of 30MHz HQ Precision Agro sensor solution

BARANI DESIGN Helical MeteoShield Professional has become an integral part of an award-nominated Precision Agriculture microclimate monitoring sensor solution for 30MHz HQ, a Netherland based precision agriculture company with worldwide reach. 30MHz HQ will exhibit at stand 08.429 at the GreenTech Expo & Horticultures ForeFront in RAI Amsterdam, Holland.

After initial testing and evaluation of the performance of the patented helical radiation shield design by BARANI DESIGN Technologies, a Slovakia based company with roots in the USA, 30MHz HQ has made it an integral part for their precision agriculture sensor solution. The patented helical radiation shield design enables internally mounted sensors to achieve accuracy superior to the best currently available ventilated sensor boxes at a fraction of the cost. The helical technology was featured in Meteorological Technology News and in greenhouse applications, it has shown temperature readings lower by multiple degrees Celsius in the sun as compared to the current state of the art.

This level of air temperature accuracy improvement enables significantly better climate control of greenhouses and accurate prediction of important plant growth parameters.
