The base system is composed of a compact 2100-138 multi-parameter sensor, collapsible tripod, battery, spread spectrum radios, and control box. The 2100-138 multi-sensor measures wind speed, wind direction, temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure and includes a built-in GPS and electronic compass. The electronic compass means the system can be quickly installed in emergency applications. Alignment of wind sensor to North is not required. The system can operate up to 4 continuous days on a fully charged battery. An optional solar panel is available for longer deployment or it can run on AC power for permanent installations. The OWI-650-DS Low Power Weather Identifier and Visibility Sensor (LP-WIVIS) option adds visibility, precipitation intensity and precipitation type discrimination (present weather) to the system.
Typical fast-response users include military, fire departments, homeland defense and agencies responsible for managing response to hazardous chemical releases and fires. Thanks to the modular design of the system, it can be quickly modified to meet specific customer needs. With minor configuration changes, the system can be adapted to a host of portable, tactical or permanent weather monitoring applications including hydrology, agriculture, ski resorts, road weather, fence-line monitoring, heliport, etc.
