Even though it’s not “Bring Your Daughter to Work Day,” Ellie has been coming to work with her dad one day a week while he balances working from home with “essential” technical responsibilities.

When the office manager heard that Ellie’s birthday was coming up, and she wouldn’t get to have a party, a plan was afoot.

Our small company was able to social distance, spreading out at several tables in our spacious manufacturing area. We celebrated with no-contact delivered lunch, an ice-cream cake, and décor complete with Ellie’s favorite -- kitties.

Weather Monitor App

CWS Weather Monitor App offers easy-to-access weather data.

Columbia Weather Systems is pleased to announce the new CWS Weather Monitor App. This real-time app is compatible with all CWS weather stations that include the Weather MicroServer. The Beta Version is now available free of charge on the App Store for Apple and Android devices – search for Columbia Weather Systems.

This app makes it easier to quickly check current conditions from a hand-held mobile device for decision-making in the field. Data is formatted to be easily read in industrial or chaotic environments such as incident response, even on a small phone screen.

CWS Weather Monitor App can gather real-time weather data from multiple weather stations associated with the user account and includes three real-time monitoring screens which display standard meteorological parameters (depending on sensors available).

The app requires access to a Cloud Weather Server account, which is free to any customer with a Weather MicroServer purchased after 9/9/2015. (For MicroServers purchased prior to that, contact CWS for upgrade information.)

Sending good wishes to all our friends, customers, and suppliers!

New website design 2020

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.
