View Up-to-the-Minute Readings on your Weather Station or PC
Why base your important growing decisions on distant university or airport weather reports? WatchDog 2000 Series Weather Stations deliver accurate, real-time weather information directly from your orchard or vineyard. Together with Specware Pro software, you can monitor, record and analyze over a dozen important growing conditions for more effective and profitable crop and pest management.
Easy to Set Up and Use
Pre-assembled sensor array with mounting hardware makes setup quick and easy. Add-on sensors plug directly into the station - no complex wiring or calibration required. U.S. or metric units of measure. Mounts to post, tripod, or 1 1/4 pole.
Built-in data logger - Store your measurements in fail-safe, non-volatile memory until you transfer the data to your PC. Select measurement intervals of 1, 5, 10, 15, 30 or 60 minutes. With a 30 minute interval, the station will retain 183 days of data. Downloading data will not erase it from the station, so multiple PCs can access the station without impacting a master data collection plan.
Enhanced LCD Display - A WatchDog exclusive. Check current and daily high/low readings for the past 30 days or confirm the station and sensors are performing — without connecting to a PC. Select Spec 8 Pro disease models can run on the station, providing field viewing of disease severity indicators.
Battery powered - A 12-month battery power source (four “AA” alkaline batteries included) means no solar panels to purchase and maintain. WatchDog 2000 Series Weather Stations use state-of-the-art electronics with low power consumption.
Communication options - Suit your specific needs by choosing from direct connection, wireless, cellular or other data transfer options.
