Product Details

The MetPak™ Pro, manufactured by Gill Instruments Ltd, is a precision weather station, capable of monitoring the most essential weather parameters with the additional ability to connect up to four external measurement devices.

The system combines a WindSonic ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor, a barometric pressure sensor, and Rotronic Hygroclip temperature/humidity probe. The external junction box allows for connection of up to four additional sensors: a Pt100 temperature sensor, contact closure rain gauge, and two analogue sensors (water level sensor, pyranometer, pressure sensor, soil temperature sensor, etc).

Installation is simple using the rugged U-bolt mounting clamp, suitable for attachment to any vertical pipe from 25mm to 50mm diameter.
