MetPak Pro with Integrated WindSonic Description

The MetPak Pro with Integrated WindSonic is capable of monitoring seven weather parameters: barometric pressure, air temperature, humidity, dew point, wind speed and wind direction. It also includes additional inputs for a Pt100 temperature sensor, a tipping bucket rain gauge and two analogue sensors (such as water level sensor, pyranometer, pressure sensor, soil temperature sensor etc.).

The following parameters and inputs come as standard:
• Wind Speed & Direction
• Air Temperature
• Relative Humidity
• Barometric Pressure
• Dew Point
• 2 * Analogue Inputs
• PRT Input
• Digital Input (for optional Rain Gauge)

External sensors can be connected directly to the weather station or for convenience via an optional distribution junction box which can be located separately from the MetPak Pro giving greater flexibility when swapping or replacing external sensors.

MetPak Pro comes complete with: MetSet configuration software, MetView data logging/visualisation software, mounting kit to adapt to poles or masts and selectable ASCII, SDI-12 or Modbus outputs.

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.
