Automatic Weather Stations (AWS)
The Harvest System is an Internet of Things (IoT) solution that can be configured as an Automatic Weather Station (AWS) ranging from high end meteorological grade systems for industrial applications, operating on the Iridium satellite network; to entry level systems for horticultural applications, operating on a cellular network. All our AWS offerings are designed to be totally standalone utilising solar power. The live data can be viewed on a webpage using any computer or smartphone.
We offer a range of high end sensors for meteorological grade performance on our weather stations. Combining these sensors with our ITU G2's stainless steel enclosure and optional mast ensures this solution will provide high quality environmental data and operate accurately and reliably in remote or rugged locations. These units can also be configured to operate on the Iridium satellite network for sites where cellular connection is not possible.
Contact us for more info about our met-grade weather stations.
We also have options that can be configured to your requirements and budget for applications that don't require met-grade performance. Our ITU G2 can be used to support a network of wireless sensors to collect data from around the site, while the ITU Mini is also a great option for smaller sites where no wireless sensors are required. Both systems support a range of hardwired sensors and outputs including weather, soil moisture, water meters, and water level sensors.
Harvest have a complete portable solutions for use in various industries. This package includes the customised ITU G2 weather station and sensors, along with a 2-piece 1.8m mast, base plate, and pegs, and a custom road case for secure storage and transportation. This configuration of AWS is currently being used by Fire and Emergency NZ (FENZ) for rapid deployment in fires, and in the forestry services industry to aide in decision making.

The Harvest Portable Wind Monitor is a solar powered ITU Mini equipped with an ultrasonic wind sensor and air temperature/relative humidity sensor. The unit features a durable plastic weatherproof enclosure, three large magnets for quick and stable mounting, and a rugged carry case for easy transportation. This is being used by topdressing pilots to provide live data which helps them decide when to fly. There is also a satellite version available for locations where there is likely to be no cell coverage.
We have a range of masts available for the mounting of weather sensors, including portable masts, non-guyed tilt over masts, and tilt over masts that can be erected and serviced by one person. All masts are designed for permanent installation and are provided as complete kits including custom mounting which we can offer for a wide range of sensors. Contact us for more info about our masts.
Our Roadside Automatic Weather Station provides accurate information that can be used onsite to make informed decisions. It features meteorological grade sensors, a robust stainless steel enclosure and our 5m non-guyed tilt over mast for optimal positioning. The data can be provided to MetService through the NZTA MerService portal, is available on the Harvest secure website and is available for integration via our API.
