Fieldclimate Sensor Groups

Sensor group is a globally defined integer constant assigned to a group of sensors having some common properties. Globally defined means that all applications, like weather station, fieldclimate.com, PC applications working with iMetos data, etc use the same group codes to identify the sensors. Properties associated with group codes are :

  • Name of sensor. Original name of the sensor in English as it comes from the measuring device
  • Kind of sensor. It shows what this sensor measures. Example: Soil temperature, air temperature, precipitation
  • Base Measurement unit. It shows what measurement unit is used. Example: Degree centigrade, mm, w/m**2. Knowing the base unit application can convert it to another relevant unit
