MetConnect One – Weather System
This MetConnect One is an integrated weather station with an ultrasonic wind sensor for high accuracy wind speed and direction measurements and sensors for air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure together with inputs for a tipping bucket rain gauge, platinum resistance temperature sensor (PRT) and two analogue sensors (0-5V or 4-20mA). The MetConnect One is compatible with the WeatherFile Connection Unit (WCU) for internet connection and remote access to the weather information.
Designed and manufactured by Gill Instruments in the UK, MetConnect weather stations are the result of over 35 years of experience designing products for the professional weather market, and builds on the success of MetPak.
The Flexible high quality platform is the essence of MetConnect, allowing the user to select the sensors most relevant to their application, and easily combine data from those sensors with data from MetConnect’s integrated sensors. This approach reduces power and communications complexity and provides time synchronized data from multiple sensors.
MetConnect One is an easy to use integrated weather station. MetConnect THP is available if the application does not require wind measurement or the user wishes to select a remote anemometer.
Output protocol options for MetConnect weather stations include RS232, RS422, RS485, SDI-12 and MODBUS.
Environmental protection to IP66/67 with easy to use, robust connectors.
Ultrasonic technology allows MetConnect to deliver highly accurate measurements with no moving parts to wear or recalibrate. As a result, MetConnect is extremely reliable and low maintenance.
