The Orion 420 Weather Station offers a complete weather station with 4-20 mA output for industrial PLC interface.
Orion 420 Weather Station Includes
Orion All-in-One Sensor Transmitter (with 50-foot cable and mounting adapter) including:
- Radiation shield with temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure
- Ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensors with alignment adaptor
- Impact rainfall
- Two 4-20 mA converter modules
- Power supply
- AC surge protector
- Optional: Heaters for wind sensor
- Recommended: Bird Spike Kit, Surge Protector (Arrestor)
With ultrasonic wind measurement technology, the Orion 420 offers high accuracy and stability with 4-20 mA signal output for interface to PLC, DCS, and SCADA systems.
(Modbus/OPCcommunication is available with the Weather MicroServer monitoring any CWS weather station.)
Additionally, real time monitoring, data logging, and graphing are available with a stand-alone Weather Display Console and/or WeatherMaster Software. The Weather MicroServer can also be connected to offer Internet-ready data as well as additional industrial protocols.
HIgh resolution and accuracy make the Orion weather monitoring system ideal for high-precision weather monitoring.
