Weather Monitoring Station Product Description
Global Water’s WE900 Weather Station is an easy-to-use and economical weather station for monitoring many weather conditions. The weather station is designed to be a drop-in weather monitoring station for easy integration with existing systems. The weather station’s 4-20 mA sensors will interface with any SCADA, PLC, or RTU system that can accept a 4-20mA input.
Included Sensors and Hardware
The WE900 Global Water Weather Station includes the following weather sensors and installation hardware:
- WE550 Wind Speed Sensor
- WE570 Wind Direction Sensor
- WE700 Temperature Sensor
- WE600 Humidity Sensor
- WE770 Solar Shield
- and the WE820 1 inch 304 stainless steel mounting frame with 316 stainless steel fittings, 6 ft tall, 3 ft wide crossbar
- Junction box
The following weather sensors and hardware can be added to the weather station:
- WE100 Barometric Pressure Sensor
- WE300 Solar Radiation Sensor
- WE710 Flat Surface Temperature Sensor
- LW100 Leaf Wetness/Rain Sensor
- AT210 Soil Moisture Sensor
- WL400 Water Level Sensor
- EP180 Evaporation Pan
- RG200 Rain Gauge 6″, Tipping Bucket
- RG600 Rain Gauge 8″, Tipping Bucket
- WE830 Mounting Tripod
Global Water’s Weather Station includes full assembly on a sturdy and durable stainless steel tube frame that can be mounted onto a pre-existing base or onto the WE830 Global Water Tripod for upright installation. The unit is designed for durability and endurance in harsh conditions. The WE770 Solar Shield, a ventilated sun shield with high reflectiveness, low heat retention, and low thermoconductivity, is provided as protection and a mounting platform for the Temperature and Humidity sensors.
Weather Monitoring Station Applications
Designed for general meteorological applications, the Global Water Weather Station is a rugged and low-cost system for a variety of weather monitoring applications, including:
- Environmental Studies
- Wastewater Facilities
- Water Budget Analysis
- Water Conservation
Weather Monitoring Station Installation
Proper siting for weather sensors is important to ensure accurate readings. For example, wind sensors should not be installed too close to a building, as turbulence created by the building can interfere with readings. The Solar Radiation sensor should be installed in direct sunlight on a level surface (bubble level and leveling screws are included with purchase).
Purchase of both the Wind Direction and Wind Speed sensors includes a T-mounting bar with a 1″ stainless steel coupling unit and allen wrench for easy allen set screw instalation. Individual wind sensors or solar radiation sensors include 1 inch stainless steel elbow couplers and an allen wrench. The Solar Shield (with a stainless steel elbow coupler) can be used for protection and easy installation of the Temperature and Humidity sensors. The Barometric Pressure sensor can be mounted with straps for a variety of applications (including inside a datalogger or to a display for hand-held use).
