Weather monitoring workhorse gains MODBUS

Posted on by in

The 2.1kg MetPak is a familiar fixture in marine, industrial and meteorological applications.

ULTRASONIC weather monitoring systems specialist Gill Instruments has expanded its MetPak multi-sensor weather station range with the introduction of MODBUS output connectivity.

The complete MetPak range is now available with an industry recognised MODBUS communication protocol as standard, alongside the existing ASCII, NMEA 0183 and SDI-12 outputs. The new output allows industrial and building control users to connect MetPak base station units to a network of multiple devices as part of an integrated computer or SCADA system.
Said to be well-established in marine, industrial and meteorological applications, MetPak units provide accurate data to oil platform, railway, emergency response vehicle and solar energy customers. The MetPak family are solid-state, lightweight weather stations and are operational in some of the world’s most extreme operating conditions and inhospitable locations.
With on-board processing electronics, the multi-sensor base stations have the ability to supply building control and automation markets with over six weather monitoring parameters. These include wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, air temperature, humidity, dew point and precipitation. In addition MetPak is capable of supporting a number of independent sensors, combining these outputs to produce an integrated data message.
