2. Airmar 150WXRS Land Based Weather with Solar Shield

WeatherStation 150WXRS provides real-time site specific weather information on rain intensity, accumulation and event duration. An acoustic sensor measures the impact energy of individual raindrops on the patented “umbrella” sensor located on the top of the WeatherStation instrument.

This rain detecting sensor is virtually maintenance free as it has no moving parts or components that need to be emptied, cleaned or will become clogged by debris.

Now you can monitor weather conditions on your boat or marine property from any internet-enabled mobile or laptop device. The WeatherStation 150WXRS provides real-time information on rain intensity, accumulation and event duration.

This instrument also integrates an acoustic sensor that can measure the impact energy of individual rain drops on the patented "umbrella" sensor located on the top of this instrument.

With minimal maintenance, plus the integration of a full suite of ultrasonic wind, temperature, barometric pressure and temperature relative humidity sensor, this Airmar WeatherStation delivers a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than traditional measurement devices.
