Weather station training unit is a benchtop kit which is designed to introduce the trainees to various sensors and devices used for monitoring and measuring weather conditions in real life. The unit allows the trainees to measure wind speed , wind direction , ambient conditions & air quality using different sensors and display the results and readings through the software.

  • The system composes of a bench top unit in addition to an accessories box.
  • The bench top unit presents a wind vane and a cup anemometer mounted on its surface, in addition to a gps tracker and a handheld anemometer .
  • The wind vance is used to detect wind direction.
  • A cup anemometer is supplied with a pocket for rain detection.
  • The cup anemometer is highly sensitive to wind motion, so it can capture the smallest amount of wind and detect its speed and direction.
  • The education unit is supplied internally with a pressure sensor, temperature sensor and humidity sensor to measure the ambient conditions of the weather.
  • Additionally, a handheld anemometer is used to detect various weather parameters such as pressure, temperature and relative humidity.
  • It also acts as a reference for the training unit measurements.
  • The training unit is provided with a software to display the measurements of the educational unit such as the reading of the temperature, relative humidity, pressure and air quality sensors in addition to the gps reading and map.
  • The trainer is connected to the Laboratory PC via wifi for display of the software using a receiver and a transmitter chips.
  • The unit is supplied with two leds, one of them is an indication for system connection to the power supply and the other one is an indication for system connection to the software.
  • The trainer is also provided with schematic diagrams of the cup anemometer and wind direction mathematical analysis.
  • The accessories kit including :
    » Transmitter and receiver chips
    » Power cable
    » Handheld anemometer.
