The Main Dashboard now features a 30-second standard deviation for wind direction.

The latest release of the Weather MicroServer (version 2.8.10378 or later) includes new real-time monitoring screens. Updated to align more closely with WeatherMaster™ Software and the Cloud Weather Server™, the Main Dashboard provides real-time data for the principal meteorological parameters, including a wind direction dial with a 30-second standard deviation for wind direction. This new feature was added based on customer feedback and integration with CAMEO/ALOHA for first responders.

The Auxiliary screen provides real-time data for additional sensors such as Solar Radiation and Visibility, as well as calculated parameters such as Wet Bulb Temperature, Heat Index, Dew Point and Wind Chill.

The Trend screen provides a trend graph of a selected parameter for the current day.

The Latest Measurements screen displays the real-time values of all the available parameters at two-second intervals.

The Main Dashboard and Auxiliary screens can be factory-customized to meet specific industry requirements.

Columbia Weather’s proprietary Weather MicroServer offers a variety of Internet and industrial protocols for automated reporting via computer or industrial automation system.

For additional features such as database, daily and monthly reports, and alarms, the Weather MicroServer can be used with WeatherMaster™ Software.
