Gazeeka WeatherBox

Overview

The Gazeeka WeatherBox takes real-time, onsite weather information from your tractor in  field ,to your phone in an instant. Consisting of a multitude of sensors, GPS, cellular connection and various mounting options, the WeatherBox is purpose build for mobile applications.

With the design, tooling and injection moulding all done here in Australia – you know they are built tough.

SIM will be cancelled if subscription is not purchased/renewed within 7 months of purchase/subscription expiry. The unit will need to be returned and reactivated at the factory, at the customers expense.

Measurements

  • Temperature and Relative Humidity
  • Wind Speed (corrected for vehicle movement)
  • Wind Direction (corrected for vehicle movement)
  • Barometric Pressure
  • GPS Location
  • Movement Detection
  • Slope (used for Forest FDI)
  • Orientation (reference to magnetic north)
  • Tractor Battery Voltage Level
  • Optional Solar Radiation Sensor
  • Calculates FDI (Grassland or Forest)
  • Dew Point
  • Delta T

App Features

  • Setup Push Notification Alerts
  • Bluetooth Link to WeatherBox
  • Display Current Status
  • Input Local Settings
  • Retrieve Historical Data
  • Display Location
  • Setup Account

Benefits

  • Remote and Local Indication of Fire Danger Index
  • Remote Indication of Hay Baling Conditions
  • Local Indication more Accurate than Distant Fixed Stations
  • Push Notification Alerts (with alarm function)

Operation

An annual subscription allows the data to be sent to a server via cellular link. The data is then made available via an App (iPhone or Android) using a Username and Password.

Specifications

Parameter Units Value

Operational

Temperature Degrees Celsius +/- 2.0 (30 seconds)
Relative Humidity Percent +/- 3.0 (8 seconds)
Irradiance (Pyranometer) 2 Watts / Metre² Range 0 to 2,000
Half sensitivity width 425 to 700 Nano metres
Barometric pressure hPa 300 to 1100 +/- 1 hPA
Accelerometer (slope) degrees +/- 1 degree
GPS accuracy Metres +/- 2.5 (approximately)
GPS response time seconds (cold start) 32
Wind speed Minimum * Metres / second (km/h) 0.7 (2.0)
Wind speed Maximum * Metres / second (km/h) 70 (250)
Wind speed accuracy * Metres / second (km/h) +/- 1 (4) (from 10 to 50 km/h)
* Wind speed is an average vector for 10 minutes (See how it works section of the manual)

Calculated

Dew Point Degrees Celsius +/- 2
Fire Danger Index (FDI) No dimensions Based on parameter inputs
Note: The accuracy of the FDI cannot be guaranteed on a moving vehicle, even if the system uses the relative wind vector and vehicle movement vector from the GPS signal to calculate the true wind speed.
