ORE – Sensing the Natural World

About Us

The people at ORE have extensive experience in instrument design, product manufacturing, field instrumentation, video and security, microcontroller systems, hardware design, customer service, and more. Together, we now focus that experience on bringing new environmental sensing to you.

Our Product Philosophy

The natural world is, for the most part, not something that you just walk up to and take a snapshot. It takes measurements in tough conditions, without supervision, and often over long time intervals. We design our products to endure as long as possible, and we are getting better and better at it. We design for extremes of weather and temperature and moisture (though generally not submerged). We design for the least maintenance possible. We design for ease of use. Above all, we design to measure what you need to measure. 

Well Instrumented Tree

The adjacent picture shows our first product, a data logging accelerometer, being used to measure the sway frequency of a maple tree at different stages of leaf development.

Note the three accelerometers secured by bungee cords to avoid tree damage.

Advantages of ORE Accelerometers

  • Weather resistant (IP65) out of the box. No need to add an external housing!
  • Long recording times with no modification. Six weeks or longer, depending on sample rate can be achieved with two C cells!
  • Batteries for power are available almost everywhere in the world.
  • Quick data download. Removable microSD card gives you long data files in minutes.
