How Do I Pick A Weather Station?

weather station

1.Automatic weather station

The automatic weather station is mainly composed of meteorological sensors, microcomputer meteorological data collectors, power supply systems, radiation-proof ventilation hoods, and other equipment. It is a kind of conventional meteorological elements that can actively observe and transmit air pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed, and rainfall. Information, a ground observation device for ground weather observation, storage, and transmission of observation data.

2.Indoor weather station

Indoor weather stations can be used in greenhouses, and their equipment generally includes soil temperature and moisture sensors, conductivity, ph sensors, and can also be equipped with sensors such as air temperature and humidity, light, and carbon dioxide.

3.Rainfall Weather Station

Rainfall weather station equipment is mainly composed of the rain gauge, wind speed and direction sensor, and air temperature and humidity sensor. In addition to these, other sensor devices can also be added according to actual needs.

4.Outdoor weather station

Generally refers to weather stations used outdoors. This kind of weather station equipment has become more extensive, wind speed, wind direction, soil temperature, and moisture, air temperature and humidity, noise, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, atmospheric pressure, light, rain and snow conditions, ultraviolet light, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, oxygen, air Many sensors such as quality, in addition to these, also include solar panels, waterproof boxes, pole brackets.

5.Portable weather station

As the name suggests, the features are simple and convenient. Because of the portable structure design, portable weather station equipment mainly includes collectors and sensors, and it can also be equipped with a vehicle-mounted tray bracket. Each observation meteorological element can be arbitrarily selected according to actual needs, and six-element, seven-element, and eight-element weather stations can be customized freely.

6.High-precision weather station

High-precision weather stations are mostly used in colleges, universities, scientific research institutions, or networked in meteorology, airports, environmental monitoring, transportation, military, agriculture, forestry, hydrology, polar expeditions, and other fields. Compared with the portable weather station, weather observation support has better corrosion resistance and can be operated in various harsh outdoor environments for a long time.

7.Forest Fire Weather Station

The forest fire risk weather station equipment mainly includes forest fire risk monitoring stations, high-performance sensors, and data storage. The forest fire risk monitoring station instrument automatically performs several observations that are indispensable for forest fires and fire risk rating assessment, such as atmospheric temperature, atmospheric humidity, daily rainfall, non-rainfall days, wind direction, wind speed, atmospheric pressure (optional), etc. Observation, the result data is directly stored in the collector, and processed by the data processor to display the data through the indoor display part.

8.Highway weather station

Meteorological elements that can be observed by expressway automatic weather stations include conventional meteorological elements (wind, temperature, humidity, rain), visibility, and road conditions (road temperature, dry and wet conditions, icing, etc.). The equipment mainly includes scattering-type visibility meter, various observation sensors, collectors, and wireless communication ports. The wireless communication port is equipped at each weather monitoring network point, and the main control computer of the weather center monitoring station monitors the data of all weather stations in the network point in a unified manner to achieve the integration and statistics of weather data in the entire network point.

9.Campus Weather Station

Composed of various sensors and automatic weather station monitors, the establishment of a weather station on the campus not only enables students to master the basic methods of meteorological observation but more importantly, it can stimulate students’ interest and enthusiasm in learning physical geography and learn more Meteorological science knowledge.
