EnviroDIY Monitoring Station Kit – Workshop Package


Note:  This is the 2022 version of the Monitoring Station Kit that is used only during hands-on EnviroDIY workshops.  Only certain workshop participants should purchase this item.  Part of this kit will be shipped to participants a few weeks before the workshop, and the rest of the kit will be available for pickup on workshop Day 2 for the in-person portion of the workshop.  Check with Stroud Water Research Center staff if you’re unsure about whether or not you should purchase this kit in preparation for a workshop.

The kit will come in the standard configuration with one cable gland for a water sensor (the Hydros 21 CTD sensor) and one small gland for the solar panel cable.  If you’re thinking of adding another sensor to your station at a later date (i.e. adding a turbidity sensor), email the workshop organizers (dbressler@stroudcenter.org) so we can pre-drill an extra hole in the case and include an extra cable gland (at no additional cost) so you can easily add one additional sensor to your station later.

The EnviroDIY Monitoring Station Kit contains parts for building a solar-powered station that transmits real-time data across 4G LTE cellular networks to the web. With proper programming, users can report their data to Monitor My Watershed and other IoT websites. This do-it-yourself kit requires computer programming using Arduino and requires mechanical assembly.

The Monitoring Station Kit contains:
