Case Study


RPR Ltd. has recently successfully installed a bespoke weather system for a private residence on the Isle of Wight in Yarmouth. Our client had a set list of requirements including the wish to receive wind and weather data from any location he happened to be in, whether that be from home, work, or out and about on the island. He also wanted to be able to share this data with friends and family from his home, a hill top location with a great vantage point over Yarmouth Harbour. This was achieved by connecting a WindSonic Sensor to our WeatherFile Connection Unit (WCU), which in turn relays data to Every Blue Dot (an ActiveGeotag) on the map shows the position of an active sensor site that is sending live data. The ActiveGeotag shows the Live Wind Speed and Direction and is updated every 10 seconds.

In a unique design, we were able to custom design a 3m mast to provide extra height for our sensor, avoiding anticipated 'wind bounce' from the roof apex. To ensure that this equipment did not stand out on the building's façade, we were able to arrange for the mast to be powder coated to the exact RAL shade of the property, minimising the visual impact, much to the delight of the customer.

From this newly created system, our client is now able to compare data from his home, as well as our weather system at Yarmouth Harbour Yacht Club, giving a full picture of the Harbour, from sea level to cliff height. Should he wish to partake in water sports farther afield, he can now receive data on from all 44 locations where RPR Ltd. have installed a weather system around the coast.

Please contact RPR Ltd. for information on how to obtain your own bespoke system.

Choose your sensor based on the parameters you want to measure.
