The beadedstream Snow Depth Monitor (SDM-24) is a cutting-edge device designed specifically for harsh environments and remote locations. Constructed from rugged stainless steel, this waterproof probe ensures reliable and accurate snow depth measurements from 0 to 2 feet (61 cm). Its robust design includes a 2-foot-long (61 cm) anchor section, providing long-term stability when installed in the ground.
The SDM-24 integrates seamlessly with beadedstream’s industry-leading data loggers, featuring satellite communication for remote data access. Snow depth data is automatically plotted on a daily chart, accessible via beadedcloud through any web browser. This setup eliminates the need for costly travel to physically check snow depth, making it an ideal solution for remote monitoring.
Unlike other snow depth measurement techniques, the SDM-24 does not require calibration or referencing with a known plane, and it can be deployed even after snowfall. The device’s high reliability and low maintenance requirements translate to lower overall project costs, redefining snow depth monitoring with a rugged, efficient, and user-friendly approach.
