Wireless transceivers offer a cable-free means to remotely monitor weather information when hardwire installations are not feasible or practical.
For fixed-mount weather stations, 2.4 GHZ and 900MHZ wireless transceiver options offer outdoor line-of-sight range at one mile and 20 miles, respectively.
For Capricorn FLX Weather Stations, weather sensors are connected to the control module which is housed with a transceiver in a weatherproof enclosure. One or two transceivers are also connected at the data viewing point(s) — the Weather Display Console and/or computer.
For the wireless Orion or Magellan Weather Stations, a transceiver is housed in the weatherproof enclosure near the sensor head. A single transceiver is connected to the Orion Interface Module at the data display site, which then is connected to a Weather Display Console and/or computer.
These stations require power at the site of the weatherproof enclosure. This power can be AC, battery or solar. The Orion and Magellan sensor heads require significantly less power and are good choices for solar or battery-powered operation.
A wireless weather station system configuration would include the weather station itself with display or software, plus a weatherproof enclosure and transceivers.
Portable Wireless Weather Stations
Our portable weather stations come standard with 2.4 GHz transceivers which are good over a one mile, line-of-sight range. With the Pegasus FLX, the sensor transceiver is mounted in the weatherproof enclosure that is hung on the tripod mast. With the Nomads, the transceiver is mounted in the carrying case with the battery pack.
