incredible weather station
also available with WIRELESS sensors
for semi professional use
TECHNICAL DETAILS & SPECIFICATIONS
* agro meteorolgy
* energy (wind, solar etc)
For gardeners, growers, forestry
or public-safety agencies, golf course managers, parks departments,
and commercial landscape managers, the GroWeather measures environmental
conditions which affect plant, pest, and livestock development.
This integrated weather station and data logger measures/calculates,
displays, and stores wind speed and direction, wind run solar
radiation, solar energy, air temperature, temperature/humidity
index and wind chill (apparent temperature),
growing degree-days, soil temperature, humidity, dew-point,
leaf wetness, barometric pressure, evapotranspiration
, rainfall, and rate of rainfall. Current readings, high
and low readings, cumulative totals, and "daily" averages
are available for disply at the push of a button. Degree-day
thresholds (both lower and upper) van be set by the user. The
system van sound an alarm when values exceed a threshold set
by the user.
This information enables the
grower or turf manager to plant, irrigate, and control pests
with high efficiency. It enables the forester or fire department
to monitor fuel and wind conditions. It also gives a measure
of environmental stress on workers and livestock.
Sensors: (ALSO WIRELESS!)
Anemometer:Enables you to measure
and display wind speed, wind direction, wind chill (with temperature
sensor), and wind run.
External Temperature Sensor:Enables
you to measure and display air temperature and growing degree-days
or soil temperature.
Sensor:Enables you to measure and display air temperature, humidity,
growing degree-days, temperature-humidity index, and dew-point.
Leaf Wetness Sensor:Enables
you to measure and display the surface moisture on foliage.
Rain Collector:Enables you to
measure and display and yearly rainfall and rate of rainfall.
Separate models measure rainfall ineither 0.01-inch or 0.2-mm
increments, Optional Rain Collector Heater enables you to measure
the moisture content of snowfall or freezing rain.
Solar Radiation Sensor:Enables
you to measure and display solar irradiance and incident energy.
Stainless Steel Temperature
Probe:Enables you to measure and display air temperature and
growing degree-days or soil temperature. Rugged stainless-steel
construction makes sensor ideally suited to measuring soil or
- Computer storage, analysis,
and graphing using GroWeatherLink
- Data transmission using a telephonemodem,
a radio data link and to website or pc network
Our Vantage Pro systems
provide a wealth of information related to energy generation
and consumption. Using the Energy Degree-Day System, fuel oil
distributors and utilities can estimate fuel and power consumption.
Property managers and real estate developers can estimate energy
requirements for heating and cooling. Engineers can evaluate
potential wind energy sites using the Wind Energy System or potential
solar energy sites using the Solar Energy System. Homeowners
and facility managers can optimize the performance of residential
or commercial solar heating systems using the Solar Energy System.
Do all this and more with the Comprehensive Energy System.
Degree-Day System includes:
- Outside temperature in °or
°using a temperature sensor or probe
- Heating degree-days with user-settable
- Cooling degree-days with user-settable
The Wind Energy
- Wind speed, wind direction,
using the Anemometer
The Solar Energy
- Solar radiation and solar energy
using the Solar Radiation Sensor
- Humidity, dew point, apparent
temperature (temperature-humidity Index) and apparent temperature
degree-days using the External Temperature/Humidity Sensor
- Wind chill and wind chill degree-days
using the Anemometer and any of our temperature sensors or probes
- Daily rainfall, accumulated
rainfall, and rate of rainfall using the Rain Collector.
- Computer storage, analysis,
and graphing using Energy WeatherLink
- Data transmission using a telephone
modem, a radio datalink, or our Short-Range Modem Pair

Our Vantage Pro systems help you monitor the conditions that
can lead to health hazards such as sunburn, skin cancer, heat
stress, or hypothermia, Use the Heat Stress System to keep an
eye on the temperature-humidity index. Use the UV System to measure
the intensity of ultraviolet radiation (index and dose), and
the Full Apparent Temperature System to see the effects of the
sun, wind, and humidity on the apparent temperature. For a Comprehensive
Health System, add all the optional sensors. Ideal for use by
radio and TV stations, daycare centers, schools, amusement parks,
and resorts-wherever health and comfort are a priority.
