Advantages of the Smart Weather Sensor WS600

  • All-in-one housing concept of a compact weather sensor combining 6 measurement parameters in one housing with only one cable connection
  • Built-in data pre-processing, universal interfaces and selectable output protocols
  • Compatible with many commercially available Met/HydroMet dataloggers and PLS systems thanks to an open communication protocol
  • Maintenance-free operation – no moving parts that can wear out
  • Suitable for all climate zones; also for solar-powered automatic meteorological stations
  • Ventilated temperature and humidity measurement according to WMO guidelines
  • Integrated heater that can be switched on if there is danger of frost

Examples of use of the Smart Weather Sensor WS600

The robust and maintenance-free smart weather sensor WS600 is designed for professional meteorological applications in all climate zones. It delivers reliable data, even in extreme ambient conditions.

Examples of use:

  • Weather observation for road and traffic control systems
  • Automatic weather station / Automatic weather sensor (AWS)
  • PV-Monitoring / Solar Monitoring on photovoltaic farms
  • Hydro-meteorological stations
  • Weather observation for building automation
  • Weather stations at airports, marinas and onboard ships
  • Integration into various other systems/solutions, where environmental data is needed...

Product variants - Smart Weather Sensor WS600

The Smart Weather Sensor WS600 is available in two product variants because of special laws concerning the use of radar technology in the UK, which is part of the precipitation measurement of the WS600.
