  • @adamgold Hey, Adam. I know you are exploring the Atlas Scientific sensor suite, so I want to connect you with Jim Moore (@w3asa) who has experience with the Atlas sensors. Perhaps one (or both) of you can submit a blog post with your application, hardware, and code?

  • Hi Neil, Good suggestion about “armoring” your cables. Others have done similar things in this region, including flexible steel electrical conduit.

  • A new manual is available that describes how to build, program, install, and maintain an EnviroDIY Mayfly Sensor Station. This manual is the result of years of experience our staff has gained in training over 500 […]

    • Wow. Thankyou Stroud Water team for detailed how-tos. Fantastic stream side setup for Mayfly, as well as good reference material for how to do water quality collection.
      One comment, is that we’ve seen sensor cables being gnawed. So we’ve tended to put the cables communicating to the sensors in a flexible PVC sheath. In the West we also get deeply incised channels, so have greater cable runs to get to a radio horizon.
