WeatherHawk, a division of Campbell Scientific, Inc., which is responsible for the sales and support of the WeatherHawk family of personal weather stations. WeatherHawk is used by universities, schools, government agencies, agriculture, industry, homeowners, resorts, and consumers in a wide variety of applications.
These stations provide real time weather data for:
· Wind speed and direction
· Outside air temperature
· Relative humidity
· Barometric pressure
· Solar radiation
· Rain fall
· Evapotranspiration ET
The pre-configured stations can be used for:
Ø Understanding micro-climate
Ø Optimize home environment
Ø Control landscape irrigation
These stations are designed for applications where a minimal visual impact, high reliability, and a long interval between routine servicing are significant factors in the decision to purchase.
These stations can provide different options for data transfer including:
§ Direct connection to PC through RS232 I/O.
§ Spread spectrum RF transceiver.
§ IP server module. Output formats from the IP server module are HTML, XML and CSV (with headers).
The following software applications for weather station management, data acquisition and logging, report generation and data display can be providing:
Ø Visual Weather Station – a single host, multi-site professional application that will communicate with the weather station, as well as CR200 Series data loggers from Campbell Scientific, Inc. Visual Weather Station adapts to any data telemetry scheme including direct connection, wireless short haul RF (spread spectrum radio), wireless long-haul RF (VHF/UHF radio), satellite modem, IP modem/server module, or landline and cellular modems.
Ø XP/X – a single host, single site consumer application that will communicate with any weather station. The XP/X connects using a directly to the serial port on the station, or by wireless short haul RF (spread spectrum radio), or IP modem/server module, or landline and cellular modems.
Ø Virtual Weather Station – a single host, single site consumer application that will communicate with any weather station.
Ø LoggerNet – a single host, multi-site professional application that will communicate with any weather station, as well as any data loggers from Campbell Scientific, Inc. LoggerNet adapts to any data telemetry scheme including direct connection, wireless short haul RF (spread spectrum radio), wireless long-haul RF (VHF/UHF radio), satellite modem, IP modem/server module, or landline and cellular modems.
Ø PConnect – a single host, single site professional application that will communicate with any weather station, as well as a range of Campbell Scientific data loggers. PConnect is used for direct download and storage of data through the serial port on either the weather station or its companion RF4xx receiver (if wireless). The software is typically utilized for field data acquisition with later export to a PC for post-processing, display and long-term archiving. It also enables on-site reprogramming of the weather station by uploading pre-configured program files. It is not designed for long haul or automated data collection protocols.
