Product code: WSFLEXIWX1
A high quality weather station that is easy to install for immediate accurate wind and weather measurement, complete with display to view data locally.
The system measures a wide range of weather parameters; wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humidity, dew point and barometric pressure using the Gill MetPak. The sensor is a compact and lightweight multi-sensor meteorological instrument utilising ultrasonic technology, as used in the proven WindSonic sensor to measure wind speed and direction. Temperature and humidity are measured using industry standard probes housed in a naturally aspirated radiation shield. Barometric pressure is measured within a vented enclosure.
The MetPak sensor used in this system has an RS232 output and has a cable distance of 15 metres. If cabling distances are longer than this we can quote as required.
The sensor is linked with the RS232 cable to our IP65 rated WS-15A Display Unit providing a clear digital readout of wind speed and direction plus a wind direction arrow with cardinal points. Temperature, pressure, relative humidity and dew point are also displayed. The display enables set-up of an optional wind speed alarm and provides an RS232 data output to connect to a SpaceLogger W10 or SpaceLogger W8 Wireless data logger or PC.
The system comes complete with a 0.9m anodised aluminium mounting mast and mains plug power supply. 12V UK or World plug options are available.
Systems can be leased or rented, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please Note: All FlexiMet systems are supplied without lightning protection as standard. Should you require additional protection for your installation, please contact us for a quotation.
