The Weather Station has a DT80 Datalogger for collecting and storing of data, delivered from 1 Cupanemometer, 1 Analogue Wind Direction Sensor, 2 Air Temperature Sensors, 2 Relative Humidity Sensors, 2 Barometric Pressure Sensors and 1 Ultrasonic Wind Sensor for wind speed and direction. The data is generated as average, max and min, gust and standard deviation values and transmitted as Modbus data to a common SCADA system.
All sensors are installed at a 4 m alu-mast with a tipping mountings for easy maintenance.
