Individual platform scale is made of Finnish plywood, which ie wheater resistant. The platform is equipped with four strain gauges, lead-acid batteries and electronics that is used to monitor the GSM beehives. With this weight can be used in two other separate wooden weighing platform with strain gauges. Monitored are one, two or three beehives as a reference for the entire apiary.

The battery capacity is sufficient to monitor the bee hive beekeeping throughout the season. But it can be also charged for the operation of solar cells or other external source. For example, from 12V battery or external power adapter.

 

DEVICE CHARACTERISTICS

  • Wooden weighing platform is used to measure the weight of the bee hive, measuring the outdoor temperature and humidity and temperature measurements in a bee hive. For other purposes regarding the weight measurement is not appropriate.
  • It contains in itself the security system with connection of magnetic contacts and sirens.
  • This is configured via SMS and monitored via SMS, Email and Web interface via mobile phone, tablet or computer.
  • It includes four strain gauges with GSM electronics and the lead battery.

PRACTICAL CONTRIBUTIONS

  • Cheaper version to monitor the weight of the bee hives.
  • Expand the monitoring of bee hives by adding two more hives with one electronics that is already used for one hive. Thus, it enables the user to monitor the weight of 3 additional bee hives placed up to 5m from each other.
  • More realistic references about apiaries – in case 2 or 3 reference bee hives with one electronics are used.

GSM bee weight FILIP-02.pdf

Same as FILIP-02-L but different size platforms - 450x495x55mm (W x D x H).

Wooden weighing platform is made of Finnish plywood resistant to weathering. The platform is equipped with four strain gauges and thermometers for temperature measurement in a bee hive. The platform must be connected to a GSM electronics weighing platforms FILIP-02 or GSM to external electronics with display FILIP-03! Expands GSM weighing platform FILIP-02 on the other two weighing platforms.

DEVICE CHARACTERISTICS

  • Wooden platform scale is used for weighing the hives.
  • Equipped with a strain gauge with cable connector.

PRACTICAL CONTRIBUTIONS

  • Cheaper version to monitor the weight of the bee hives.
  • Expand the monitoring of bee hives by adding two more hives with one electronics that is already used for one hive. Thus, it enables the user to monitor the weight of 3 additional bee hives placed up to 5m from each other.
  • More realistic references about apiaries – in case 2 or 3 reference bee hives with one electronics are used. 

Technical parameters:

Strain gauge: input 5V, output 0-10mV, 0-180kg
Working temperature: -20 … +55 °C
Storage temperature: -30 … +70 °C
Working position: Horizontal
Covering: IP 65
Connection from strain gauge: Connector, cable 5m long.
Size: (l  x w x h) 495 x 495 x 55 mm

The same wood weighing platform as FILIP-01-L just another dimension of the platform 450 x 495 x 55 mm. (W x D x H). The platform must be connected to a GSM electronics weighing platforms FILIP-02 or GSM to external electronics with display FILIP-03! Expands GSM weighing platform FILIP-02 on the other two weighing platforms.
