Weather Station

                                   Weather Station in perspective of CPC1 Building

Our Wireless Weather Stations include two components: the Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) which houses and manages the external sensor array, and the console which provides the user interface, data display, and calculations. The ISS and Vantage Pro2 console communicate via an FCC‐certified, license‐free, spread‐spectrum frequency‐hopping (FHSS) transmitter and receiver. Userselectable transmitter ID codes allow up to eight stations to coexist in the same geographic area. The frequency hopping spread spectrum technology provides greater communication strength over longer distances and areas of weaker reception. The Wireless weather station includes two additional sensors: the UV sensor and the solar radiation sensor. The console may be powered by batteries or by the included AC‐power adapter. The wireless ISS is solar powered with a battery backup. Using dedicated software allow our weather station interface communicate with a computer, to log weather data, and to upload weather information to the internet. The station rely on passive shielding to reduce solar‐radiation induced temperature errors in the outside temperature sensor readings. The Fan‐aspirated station combine passive shielding with a solar‐powered fan that draws outside air in over the temperature and humidity sensors, providing a much more accurate temperature reading than that available using passive shielding alone.
