Product Details

The Wireless Weather Sensor is an all-in-one instrument for monitoring complex environmental conditions. It houses several sensing elements within a single unit to provide 19 different measurements. Use the sensor in logging mode with the optional Weather Vane Accessory for long-term monitoring, or use it as a handheld instrument to study microclimates and local weather patterns in real time. The collected data can be wirelessly transmitted to class devices for student analysis, making it possible to perform group studies in a single class period. With the built-in GPS, students can also collect and analyze location data for GIS investigations, displaying it on the SPARKvue Map display, powered by ESRI ArcGIS.

1 Minimum # of data points with all measurements enabled, actual results depend on enabled measurements.

2 Continuous use in a connected state until battery failure, actual results will depend on sample rate, active measurements, and battery condition.

3 Logging until battery failure, actual results will depend on sample rate, active measurements, and battery condition.

* Normal classroom use is the sensor in active use for 20min/lab for 120 lab periods/yr.
