Sensor resistance to low temperatures

Sensors and DIY

Hello,

I've read in the Flower Power User Guide that the operating temperature for the sensors ranges from -10°C to 55°C. Temperatures at our place tend to drop quite a bit lower in winter - we've been measuring -25°C during some nights the last years. Have you tested whether the sensors resist such low temperatures?

Thanks, Tatjana

Hello Tatjana

Our sensor team have been testing the sensors so I will ask their experiences of lower temperatures and let know you.

Best wishes

Dear Tatjana, yes it should be no problem. We tested it here in Austria during last winter with temperatures around -15°C, and all the sensors continued to collect data properly afterwards.

Hello Luca,

thanks for the quick reply! That's still 10°C more than our sensors will probably experience this winter, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see how resistant they really are in the end. :)

Kind regards, Tatjana
