WeatherMonitoring Station Product Description
Global Water’s WE900Weather 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.
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
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
- LW100 Leaf Wetness/Rain Sensor
- AT210 Soil Moisture Sensor
- WL400 Water Level Sensor
- EP180 Evaporation Pan
- 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 on to 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 thermo conductivity, is provided as protection and a mounting platform for the Temperature and Humidity sensors.
WeatherMonitoring 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, asturbulence created by the building can interfere with readings. The SolarRadiation 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 aT-mounting bar with a 1″ stainless steel coupling unit and allen wrench foreasy allen set screw instalation. Individual wind sensors or solarradiation sensors include 1″ stainless steel elbow couplers and an allenwrench. The Solar Shield (with a stainless steel elbow coupler) can beused for protection and easy installation of the Temperature and Humiditysensors. The Barometric Pressure sensor can be mounted with straps for avariety of applications (including inside a datalogger or to a display forhand-held use).
