Plant Growth System

Plant Growth Monitoring

Our systems can be configured to provide accurate, stand-alone monitoring of greenhouse or growth chamber conditions for use in agricultural and plant physiology research applications.

Weather Station

Weather Station to Monitor Plant Growth

Monitor microclimates with four sensor channels of power
  • Same power, flexibility, and accuracy as the 2000 Series Weather Stations
  • Measure temperature, humidity, quantum light and more (varies by model)
  • Customize your mini station with 1-4 plug-in sensors to meet your needs
  • Accurate, real-time weather information directly from where you grow
  • Log your data in fail-safe, non-volatile memory
  • Choose measurement intervals from 1 to 60 minutes (holds 198 days of data with a 30 minute interval)
    • In standard mode (no SMEC300 sensors*): 9544 records, or 198+ days at 30-minute intervals.
    • In Virtual Port mode (using one or more SMEC300 sensors): 4278 records, or 89+ days at 30-minute intervals.
  • Reliable NEMA-4 type IP 66 enclosure and weatherproof connectors
  • Use the LCD display to check current and daily high/low readings without a PC.
  • Run disease models on the station, providing field viewing of disease severity indicators
  • Alarms: send a warning if a sensor exceeds high and low limits
  • 12-month battery power source (four AA alkaline batteries included)
  • Communicate via wireless, cellular, shuttle or direct connect
  • Requires SpecWare Basic or Pro software 
Model 2475 Plant Growth Station
The WatchDog Model 2475 Plant Growth Station -  Includes sensors for quantum (PAR) light, air temperature, relative humidity, and 1 available external sensor port
  • Computes and displays Daily Light Integral (DLI), dew point, and degree days
  • Computes and displays DIF – Average day/night temperatures
  • Computes and displays VPD – Vapor Pressure Deficit
