Guide to Buying a Professional Weather Station

“The weather station functioned flawlessly with the interface with CAMEO and our new laptops.”

Popular with HazMat teams and environmental researchers alike, portable weather stations offer a rapid-deployment option for short-term on-site weather monitoring. US DHS SAVER report commended CWS for detailed user manual “easy to use and provided clear instructions” and “offering many easy-to-use display options.”

Portable weather stations offer rugged all-in-one sensor configurations for quick installation on a telescoping tripod mast. Sensor, batteries, and communication devices are self-contained in a rugged carrying case with wheels. Heavy-duty steel tripod mast with sling transport bag includes everything needed for speedy and secure set-up.

Wireless Portable Weather Station utilizes 2.4 GHz Wireless Transceivers:

Gives the system remote capability within two (2) mile line-of-sight range. FCC approved and license free.

Datalogging Portable Weather Station utilizes Weather MicroServer:

A data logger and powerful communication device, the Weather MicroServer stores data at a 1-minute interval with a 1-year capacity. For shorter-term data collection, a 1-second interval can be used. A web browser user interface provides real-time dashboards, configuration, and data export.

Both Configurations Include:

Transportation Case:
Rugged polyethylene carrying case with roller wheels houses batteries and transceivers (for wireless) or MicroServer (for datalogging) with quick-connect sensor plug-in jack. Foam padded interior protects sensitive equipment. Keeps all components in a constant state of readiness.

Tripod Sensor Mast:
Made of powder coated heavy-gauge steel for added protection against the elements. The mast has three removable legs with locking pins. Telescoping extension elevates to 10 feet overall maximum height. Includes: Guy-wire ring collar, guy-wires, grounding stakes, compass for north orientation, and heavy duty canvas transportation bag.

Battery Power System with Charger:
Two 12 volt sealed lead acid (SLA) gel batteries. Quick-charging battery system keeps a fresh battery in supply. Comes with a plastic carrying case to protect against weather elements and contaminants. Operating times for each battery:

Magellan MX Portable Weather Stations™ feature internal compass and GPS in an all-in-one sensor module with multiple sensor configurations including ultrasonic wind sensor, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and optical rain gauge. *Recommended for mobile applications due to GPS and compass with auto-alignment for wind direction.

Orion Nomad Portable Weather Stations™ feature an all-in-one sensor unit with ultrasonic wind direction and speed measurements, a highly-accurate impact rain sensor, capacitive relative humidity, temperature and barometric pressure readings.
