Self Aspirating Radiation Shield for Capricorn Weather Stations

When accuracy is critical - especially in environments where your sensors may be subject to incident radiation from either direct sunlight or proximate surfaces - a radiation shield is the solution. This self-aspirating radiation shield will help you get the most accurate temperature and/or humidity readings. We listened to our customers to find out just what they needed and developed a thermally-engineered shield unlike any other.

Maximum diameter for probe insertion: 7/8"

  Self Aspirating Radiation Shield for Capricorn Weather Stations

Solar Power

To fully power weather stations in applications that do not have access to electricity, we offer solar panels. These are custom per installation based on geographical location. Most common are 20 and 40-watt systems.

While these can be used with any CWS weather station, the Orion and Magellan all-in-one weather stations consume the least energy and are the best-suited for solar-powered weather monitoring systems.

Catalog Number: 83000

Includes

  • solar panel
  • controller
  • mounting adapter
  • battery and battery enclosure

Surge Protectors for Orion and Magellan Weather Stations

Compatible with all Magellan and Orion Weather Stations.

(For Capricorn Weather Stations, standard electrical surge suppressors can be purchased from a local electronics supply store such as Radio Shack or Best Buy.)

A nearby lightning strike may induce a high voltage surge which the internal suppressor of your weather instrument may not be able to withstand, causing significant damage to the weather station. Protect your weather station investment with a Surge Protector.

This compact transient overvoltage suppressor is designed for weather stations in areas with an elevated risk of lightning strike such as on top of high buildings, or anywhere with cable lengths greater than 100 feet.

  • Superior 3-stage surge protection
  • Tolerates up to 10kA surge currents
  • Both differential and common mode protection on each channel
  • Filtering against HF and RF noise
  • Two power channels and two data channels
  • Environmental protection class IP66

Catalog Number: 8355

Includes adjustable mounting clamp.

Weatherproof Enclosure for Capricorn 2000 Weather Stations

A weatherproof enclosure is available for the Capricorn 2000 Control Module. The weatherproof enclosure can house the Control Module board, power supply and wireless transceiver.

Designed for use in both indoor and outdoor settings, the enclosure can be used to protect sensitive instrumentation from corrosive environments typically found in oil refineries, chemical processing plants, waste water treatment, and marine installations.

Cables are routed through liquid tight strain relief fittings.

Construction:

  • Molded fiberglass polyester has outstanding chemical and temperature resistance and exhibits excellent weatherability and physical properties.
  • Seamless foam-in-place gasket assures watertight and dust-tight seal
  • Polyester mounting feet and stainless steel attachment screws are provided with each enclosure.
  • The quick-release, corrosion-resistant polyester latches are located in corners which allow unobstructed access to enclosure.

Overall Size: 
L 12 x W 10 x H 6 inches (305 x 254 x 152mm)

Bird Spike Kit for Orion Weather Stations

Seagulls seem to be inordinately fond of the ultrasonic transducers on the Orion Weather Stations.

To discourage pecking and nesting we offer this Bird Spike Kit.

Designed not to hurt the birds, the spikes provide a barrier to make it more difficult for birds to land on top of the transmitter.

This option is highly recommended for coastal environments.

Additional Warranties for Orion Sensor Head

The sensor head is one of the most fragile components of an all-in-one weather station, and frequently the one subject to the most abuse -- especially in portable and mobile installations.

In addition to our standard one-year warranty which is included with the purchase price, we offer Extended Standard and "No-Fault" Warranties on the Orion Sensor Module.

The Free One-Year Standard Factory Warranty and the Extended Standard Factory Warranty do NOT cover damage due to normal wear and tear, exceptional operating conditions, negligent handling or installation, or unauthorized modifications.

The No-Fault Warranty covers repair service fees, parts and material that are not covered under the Standard Warranty. This includes damage caused by negligent handling or installation, as well as Acts of God.

Warranty service options can only be purchased with new orders.

Catalog Number: 85110

   

Battery Backup Unit

The new battery back-up option provides continuous power to the weather station system in the event of an electrical outage. The 12VDC battery comes in a NEMA enclosure and can power a non-heated Orion LX Weather Station for up to three days. It is available for most weather station configurations.
