MetPak-Pro Weather Station

MetPak-Pro Weather Station

MetPak-Pro weather station utilises Gill WindSonic ultrasonic technology, a highly accurate barometric pressure sensor and a Rotronic Hygroclip HC2-S3-GI temperature/humidity probe.

The design of the MetPak-Pro allows measurements to be as accurate as possible without influencing other measured parameters yet provides a compact, reference quality system. The unit is especially suitable for harsh or marine environments and is supplied with selectable Gill ASCII, NMEA SDI-12 and Modbus outputs.

Product Description

MetPak-Pro Weather Station

MetPak-Pro integrates industry-leading products in a convenient, economical package allowing users to concentrate on the measurement rather than the quality of the measurement. Calibration services are available from Gill.

Base Station

MetPak-Pro is available as a Base Station which enables the system to be specified with a remote wind sensor if required. This sensor can be positioned away from the Base Station and a connection cable is provided.

The Base Station has been tested in accordance with BSEN 60945 and is suitable for use in marine environments. This system can also be specified without a wind sensor if wind measurement data is not required.

Wind Sensor Options

  • WindSonic: For wind speed and direction measurements to m/s. Corrosion free, polycarbonate housing.

 

  • WindSonic M: Wind speed and direction measurements to 60 m/s with heating and impact resistant to UL2218 Class 1 & BSEN 60945.

 

  • WindObserver: With enhanced heating and wind measurements up to m/s for extreme conditions.

 

  • WindMaster: Three-dimensional wind measurements up to 45 m/s in a lightweight carbon fibre/aluminium construction.

     

  • WindMaster Pro: Three-dimensional wind measurement up to 65 m/s in a stainless steel housing.
