100-1723-PK-100 MetPak II Weather Station

MetPak II Weather Station
100-1723-PK-100 MetPak II Weather Station
The MetPak II is an enhanced multi-sensor weather station that measures a wide range of weather parameters, including: wind speed and direction; air temperature; relative humidity; barometric pressure and dew point.
Product Details

The MetPak™ II, manufactured by Gill Instruments Ltd, is an enhanced multi-sensor weather station that measures a wide range of weather parameters, including: wind speed and direction; air temperature; relative humidity; barometric pressure and dew point.

Gill ultrasonic technology, as used in the proven WindSonic instrument, measures wind speed and direction. Temperature and humidity are measured using industry standard probes housed in a naturally aspirated radiation shield. Barometric pressure is measured within a vented enclosure. A serial data output is provided to interface with industry standard data loggers.

The MetPak™ II weather station can be supplied with digital SDI-12, RS232, and RS422 outputs. Low power consumption enables this weather station instrument to be used in remote locations where power is at a premium. An electrical junction box is fitted to the mounting bracket allowing convenient termination of all electrical cables.

The MetPak™ II weather station is provided with Gill MetView software, which allows for complete weather monitoring via one easy-to-navigate screen.
