The MetPak Base Station is capable of monitoring barometric pressure, air temperature, humidity and dew point. The unit features an on-board high accuracy barometric pressure sensor and a Rotronic Hygroclip HC2-S3 temperature/humidity probe housed in a naturally aspirated radiation shield. With an integrated WindSonic ultrasonic wind sensor for high accuracy wind speed and direction measurement.
Wind Sensor Options
The digital wind speed indicator is a combined wind speed and direction display available in two formats - standard or marine. Wind speed information is displayed using two, 3 digit LED arrays to display current wind speed and maximum or minimum gust data; and a double ring of 36 LEDs indicate current and average wind direction.
The wind speed indicators have been designed to operate with the WindObserver II and WindSonic wind sensors. The Wind Display receives data directly from the wind sensor in either custom or NMEA mode without the need for additional interfaces. It provides the power supply for the wind sensor and can be “daisy chained” to a second wind display to transfer wind sensor information.
