Power Related Challenges in Environmental Monitoring

  • Replacing or recharging batteries can be costly and logistically challenging
  • Data capture must run continuously
  • Data capture may occur in an extremely wide range of operating conditions
  • Signal transmission can be affected by geographic location and network coverage

Advantages to Adding Solar

  • Enable monitoring systems to be deployed in locations where grid power is unavailable
  • Extend the operating life of battery-powered systems by continuously recharging the batteries during daylight hours
  • Eliminate the need for frequent battery replacements
  • Increase data transmission rates
