HailSens IoT

Advanced hail sensor for real-time monitoring of hail events.

HailSens IoT - The next generation hail sensor.

The HailSens IoT is an advanced sensor for real-time monitoring of hail events. It provides objective and rapid insight into the in-situ impact of hail events. With significantly improved sensor technology, the HailSens IoT enables users to measure and understand hail events with up to 70% greater accuracy than before.

From sensor to software, hail monitoring just got better.

The detection of hail impacts (as opposed to other types of ice or watery precipitation) is based on kinetic impact measurement. The characteristics of each hailstone detected (kinetic energy, equivalent diameter and impact time stamp) are both recorded and transmitted in real time. Software at the receiving end can make an immediate assessment of a hail event as it develops and can then be programmed to issue near real-time alerts based on the incoming data.

Key features of the Hail Monitoring System



Detect hail events instantly with real-time monitoring, which enables you to make real-time decisions at the time of an event by intelligently collecting and analysing hail data.



Be alerted at the time of a hail event to ensure you have sufficient time to co-ordinate a response. Alarms are fully customisable to suit your needs and requirements.



Measure and understand hail events with up to 70% greater accuracy than ever before, allowing you to quickly gain insight into hailstone size and kinetic energy.



Get quick and easy access to hail event information using current forecast and observed weather data through the integration of a smart software solution.



The functionality and capabilities of the software and sensors ensure the system remains reliable to project accurate data for comprehensive hail monitoring (lifetime calibration).

HailSens IoT combines sophisticated measurement technology with online access to data. The unrivalled level of detail per hailstone makes the data extremely useful for any professional looking for objective, comprehensive hail data.
