For the permanent acquisition of different weather data, the provider of meteorological and hydrological measurement systems HyQuest Solutions (KISTERS Group) is launching the new WeatherSens product line with high-precision, all-in-one, multi-parameter weather stations. The low-maintenance compact weather stations made of corrosion-resistant materials are particularly suitable for applications in hydrometeorology and agrometeorology, environmental monitoring, smart cities, weather monitoring on roads and infrastructure as well as in industry. WeatherSens measures up to seven weather parameters such as wind speed and direction, air temperature, humidity and pressure, rainfall and solar radiation. The durable WeatherSens stations are IP66 rated and have been tested and approved for high and low temperature ranges, humid weather, windy and coastal environments with salt spray and vibration. Universal interfaces such as SDI-12 or RS 485 ensure easy connection to data loggers or control systems.
The new WeatherSens stations add to an already comprehensive portfolio of meteorological sensors and systems from HyQuest Solutions and complement the proven precipitation measuring devices based on tipping bucket or weighing technology with their innovative photo- or piezoelectric sensor technology for rain measurement.
Configurable for various applications
The sensors of the WeatherSens MP series with aluminum coating and Teflon alloy and the sensors of the WeatherSens WS series made of corrosion-resistant polycarbonate can be configured for specific applications, for example with regard to the measurement parameters and data communication interfaces. Thanks to low power consumption, they are suitable for a power supply with a solar panel.
