Product Details

Say goodbye to electricity and power cords—this weather station and its sensors are powered by solar energy! Measure wind speed, wind direction, temperature, barometric pressure, rainfall and relative humidity. It computes wind chill and dewpoint, shows wind direction variations and stores maximum and minimum data readings. The digital display panel has a 12-position selector knob. Set the display panel to auto select and continuously scan in sequence each weather category every 4 seconds.

The sealed battery in the weather station is powered by solar panels, which are adjustable for latitude depending on your geographic location. The station’s transmitter is 28" H × 15" W × 10" D and can be located anywhere within 400' of the display panel. The display panel can be wall mounted or placed on a countertop and measures 5¾" H × 7¾" W × 1¾" D. Two-year manufacturer warranty.

Use the optional Network Interface Module (available separately) with the solar-powered weather station to record and save data over time on 2 MB of flash memory. Includes RainwiseNet™ Basic Package Software and Web Hosting. Features include: integrated radio, computer independent data upload, multiple data host support, simple web-browser interface, automatic software updates, instant uploading to and the iPhone app. Analyze weather data over time, and compare it to historic weather
