AIRMAR’s WeatherStation WXRS provides real-time 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.

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

Features

  • Ultrasonic measurement of apparent, true wind speed and direction
  • Acoustic measurement of rain accumulation, intensity and duration
  • GPS for time stamping and internal compass for true wind data
