Mini-met Weather Station
The Mini-Met is a rugged, battery operated weather station for permanent installation or portable application. The system consists of a strong,
weather-proof frame for mounting sensors and a Squirrel data logger in a weatherproof enclosure which will withstand severe weather conditions. Recorded data is retained for two years, even if power is lost.
- Weatherproof enclosure to withstand the rigours of severe climatic conditions.
- Built-in Squirrel 1000 Series data logger.
- Battery backup allows recorded data to be retained for up to two years even if power is completely lost to the data logger.
- High performance sensors.
Accurate Sensor Measurements
Collected rain is measured by the well-proven tipping bucket method and the aerodynamic rainfall gauge has been designed by the Institute of Hydrology to minimise errors by presenting a reduced area to the wind.
The robust 3-cup anemometer, designed for permanent installations, is based
on a sensor developed for the UK Ministry of Defence and calibrated to National
The silicon diffused photocell is a compact sensor for solar energy measurements calibrated against precision reference thermocouple pyranometers in
natural light conditions. The integral levelling device allows correct positioning of the sensor.
This stainless steel probe uses a thermistor to achieve high accuracy.
Designed to withstand hurricane force winds, the windvane is specially balanced to turn in very light winds, and with bearings protected from moisture
make it suitable for permanent exposure.
Relative humidity and air temperature
Equipped with an accurate thermistor sensor, and the latest Vaisala HUMICAPTM sensor, this probe provides high accuracy, excellent long-term stability and negligible hysteresis.
An absolute pressure sensor utilising the outstanding elasticity characteristics of single-crystal silicon, achieving excellent repeatability and
long term temperature stability.
