Weather Monitoring Instrumentation
Stevens offers many weather monitoring solutions, such as the five-parameter Met Station One
Precipitation gages, such as the industry-standard Tipping Bucket Precipitation Gage make accurate measurement of rainfall and snowfall levels in remote environments an easy addition to new or existing stations. For applications where high precision accuracy is required, Stevens offers the OTT Pluvio2 Precipitation Gage, which offers an accuracy of ±0.1 mm (±0.0039 in.).
Wind Speed and Direction Sensors
Relative Humidity, Temperature, and Atmospheric Pressure
Air temperature and humidity can also have a significant impact on the accuracy of other measurements. The Vaisala HMP155 provides accurate measurement of these parameters in an extremely compact package, which is easily integrated into existing systems. Atmospheric pressure can also be monitored easily and accurately using the Met One Barometric Pressure sensor.
