About PESSL Instruments GmbH
For almost 40 years, Pessl Instruments has been offering tools for informed decision-making. A complete range of wireless, solar powered monitoring systems under the METOS® brand, and an online platform FieldClimate are applicable in all climate zones and can be used in various industries and for various purposes – from agriculture to research, hydrology, meteorology, flood warning, snow removal and many more.
Over the years, METOS® has become a global brand with local support and has managed to reach out to almost every corner of the world. The METOS® brand lasts longer, performs better, is easier to use and offers you the lowest total cost of ownership.
DROPSIGHT is a very young technology start-up company in the e-agricultural environment. In February 2021 Marius Ras and Cobus Meyer, Mechanical and Electronic Engineers, did a proof of concept of what has been patented (#2022/02473), developed and commercialized as DROPSIGHT® technology today.
For the first time ever, it was now possible to measure the quantity of deposition of a formulation on natural surfaces, evaluate the quality of the distribution and calculate the uniformity thereof. This is the game changing technology that will optimize the use of pesticides and reduce the risk of environmental contamination by using it in the field as a tool to evaluate and improve your sprayer set up before you add the chemical to the tank – exactly what is required to support the EU GREEN DEAL.
The development of the export market is our focus and priority – and finding a preferred partnership in PESSL/METOS to reach our customers globally is a milestone to be celebrated!
