New GPS met station offers rapid-deploy, real-time weather data
The Magellan MX is a new weather station line from Columbia Weather Systems offering GPS and compass readings, particularly useful for vehicle and mobile applications requiring real-time met data on the go, such as incident command centers and hazmat vehicles.
Magellan MX weathers stations offer four different all-in-one parameter configurations.
MX600: rain gauge, ultrasonic wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, compass, GPS
MX500: ultrasonic wind speed and direction, pressure, temperature, relative humidity, compass, GPS
MX300: pressure, temperature, relative humidity (no compass or GPS)
MX200: ultrasonic wind speed and direction, compass, GPS
For models with wind sensors, measurements are automatically compensated using the compass and GPS readings.
Data can be monitored with WeatherMaster Software, a
touchscreen Weather Display console, and/or the Weather MicroServer for
Internet and SCADA protocols. The Weather MicroServer also offers additional
