Each scale is individually calibrated to ensure the highest possible measurement accuracy.

The weight sensors are numbered and should be switched on at the places provided for on the central unit.

Weather sensor

Weather sensor

The beehive scale has a high-quality weather sensor from Bosch, which enables the measurement of temperature, air pressure and relative humidity. The weather sensor is built into a housing that enables easy assembly. It is recommended to install the housing in a shady place, e.g. under the beehive.

Solar cell
