The ScopeDome Cloud Sensor is a cloud and rain sensor based on sky temperature measurement, dedicated to work with the ScopeDome Arduino card. It allows for the automatic closing of the dome in case of rain or cloud cover. The built-in sensor heating system prevents false alarms caused by dew.
The sensor connection method can be found in the manual for the ScopeDome Arduino card.
Please contact us for a quotation. Please be aware that prices subject to change due to fluctuation of Euro exchange rate.
Important: for proper operation of cloud sensing feature it is necessary to add a thermometer probe for external temperature sensing to our Arduino card: Thermometer for ScopeDome Arduino Card. It should be connected to Ow2 input of the card.
The sensor can also be connected to other cards based on Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
