Gill MaxiMet GMX551 Compact Weather Station

with FREE UK Standard Delivery


£-- inc VAT

The GMX551 adds an integrated side connector to add any tipping rain bucket gauge (Kalyx or ARG314 for example). Standard parameters measured include solar radiation, wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, absolute humidity, air density and wet bulb temperature readings. The built-in electronic compass automatically aligns the sensor to north. Optional GPS functionality delivers true wind measurements and automatically positions the sensor.

GMX551 Compact Weather Station Description

The Gill MaxiMet GMX551 combines the GMX101, GMX200 and GMX300 with the addition of a side connector to add any rain gauge, the measurements are included in the data string of the sensor.

Three double-louvered naturally aspirated radiation shields deliver long term highly accurate weather data. Parameters measured include temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, absolute humidity, air density and wet bulb temperature.

The thermal sensor protected by a single glass dome records the quantity of light per metre calculating solar radiation (W/m2), sunshine hours, twilight, sunrise, sunset, position of sun, solar noon and angle of tilt.

The solid state ultrasonic sensor provides extremely accurate wind speed and direction measurements. An electronic compass comes as standard which delivers apparent wind, WMO wind averages and gust data.

The optional GPS adds the benefit of a true wind measurement, height above sea level, latitude and longitude, and simplifies installation by automatically finding north.

Richard Paul Russell Ltd. can connect the sensor to the WeatherFile.com website where data can be viewed using any internet connected device and downloaded for detailed analysis in a .CSV file format.

Precipitation Care & Maintenance

NOTE: the temperature, humidity and barometer sensors are located internally and are not maintainable or replaceable by a user. Consideration should be given to checking the pressure readings against a standard every 12 months and maintaining the temperature and humidity sensor every 12-24 months. If required you can return the MaxiMet to Richard Paul Russell Ltd to check the barometer calibration, please contact us at sales@r-p-r.co.uk for more details.

Choose your sensor based on the parameters you want to measure.
