The NOMAD is a truly portable monitoring station. It is supplied in customised carrying cases and is specifically designed for easy transportation, rapid deployment and quality of measurement.
The NOMAD can be deployed and be collecting data in under 5 minutes with disassembly being just as quick, allowing you to be packed and en-route to the next monitoring site without delay.
Quality construction and an integrated solar panel gives NOMAD the independence required for prolonged operation in isolated or inhospitable environments.
The NOMAD’s portability allows the user to monitor any location and as standard measures: temperature, humidity, pressure, wind speed, wind direction, solar radiation and rainfall.
Easy Assembly 5 minutes
The NOMAD system comprises three key components, a lightweight collapsible tripod assembly. The Sensus II data logger (logger, solar panel and rechargeable battery) and detachable sensor array (anemometer, wind vane, temperature, humidity and solar radiation.)
A barometric pressure sensor is integrated within the Sensus II logger and a tipping bucket rain gauge is generally sited adjacent to the system. The system comes complete with an anchoring kit and compass for correct station orientation.
All components are housed within custom designed carry cases for ease of transportation and system protection.
