Accurate meteorological information is an essential part of airport safety operations. Our 150 Series allows users to create fully flexible automatic weather stations. These can be designed to meet the needs of individual airports and aerodromes and, where necessary, can be configured in line with ICAO & WMO guidelines.
Our sensors provide real-time information on a large number of parameters (detailed below). Up-to-the-second data ensures airport personnel have the necessary information to make critical decisions. This helps to maintain smooth, safe and efficient flight operations.
Wind Speed & Wind Direction: Our comprehensive range of anemometers allow for accurate measurement of wind speed and direction at single or multiple sites. Derived parameters, including maximum gust and wind speed/direction variability, can also be reported.
Air Temperature, Dew point & Relative Humidity: To meet requirements for temperature, relative humidity and dew point observations, we offer a complete selection of hygrometers.
Barometric Pressure: We supply barometric sensors capable of reporting QNH (pressure adjusted to sea level) and QFE (pressure adjusted such that the altimeter will read zero upon landing).
Visibility & Runway Visual Range (RVR): Using a light scattering technique Visibility, Meteorological Optical Range (MOR) and RVR are measured and reported in m/km
Rainfall: We offer a number of different tipping bucket rain gauges, suitable for use in a range of environments.
Present Weather: Our Present Weather Sensor reports precipitation type (drizzle, rain, snow, freezing rain, haze, mist fog etc.) according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Table 4680 Codes.
Cloud & Sky Condition: Our Ceilometer provides a precise assessment of sky condition with measurement of cloud base height, amount and type.
Any number and combination of sensors can be selected and paired with our powerful data logger. Collected data is then automatically transmitted via 3G, UHF radio frequency or Zigbee wireless to our cloud-based software. This provides a platform for data storage, visualisation and manipulation. It is also possible to configure alarms within the software to notify relevant parties if specified thresholds are breached.
