Beehive scales BEESCALE4
COUVAIN AND METEO SENSORS

The BEESCALE4 range has 2 types of probes:
- the METEO probe: it measures with precision the temperature, the humidity and the atmospheric pressure outside the hive, one is used per hive
- the COUVAIN probe : it measures the temperature and the humidity inside the hive: one is used per hive
You will find in this page many details about these two products.

These probes have multiple uses: monitoring of egg laying, monitoring of honey moisture, help with oxalic acid treatment etc... to learn more you can consult the tutorial "Monitoring egg laying

Weather sensor

Weather sensor

You can add the weather sensor at any time. This sensor is simply added on the Channel 1 of the scale thanks to a Y cable provided. It will be immediately taken into account by simply pressing the "RESET" button on the scale.

This sensor measures :

- atmospheric temperature (accuracy +/- 0.5 °C),
- atmospheric pressure (accuracy +/- 0.5 PA),
- atmospheric humidity (accuracy +/- 3 %).

These three values are read once an hour at the same time as the hive weights. Placed under a shelter, it will provide you with extremely accurate weather data. If you do not have a shelter specifically for weather measurements, simply place it under the hive.

Brood Probe

brood probe

You can also add a brood sensor to each of the scale's Channels 1 to 4 at any time using the Y-cables provided. These sensors are placed inside the hives between two frames of brood.

They will provide you with one time per hour:

- the brood temperature of the 4 hives (precision +/- 0.5 °C),
- the brood humidity of the 4 hives (precision +/- 3 %).
