Mexico - HydroMet Calibration Vehicle with WS501 weather station on board - IGS Hydro

The Office of Meteorology and Hydrology in Mexico equipped a vehicle with measurement technology for verification of their Hydro-Met stations. We are proud that they decided to choose our smart WS501 compact weather station (All-in-one) for measurement of the meteorlogical parameters.

With the integration of the smart weather sensor WS501-UMB the calibration vehicle can provide accurate data about air temperature, relative humidity, global radiation, air pressure, wind direction and wind speed.

The National Agency for Water Management in Mexico (CONAGUA) is a decentralized administrative agency of the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, founded in 1989, whose task is to manage, regulate, control and protect the national waters of the country. The National Weather Service is also part of the Ministry.

CONAGUA has more than 70 fixed automatic stations and want to consistently check the readings of the sensors and monitor the quality of the measurement with this vehicle.

In addition to the compact weather station WS501 the vehicle is also equipped with the Universal Current Meter C31 from OTT for discharge measurements. The meteorological and hydrological sensors are connected to a netDL 500 datalogger from OTT which has telemetry so that the data continuously can be send to a central unit.
