Overview

The MetSENS200 compact weather sensor measures wind speed and direction via an ultrasonic sensor. An integrated electronic compass provides apparent wind measurements. WMO average wind speed and direction and gust data are provided.

The MetSENS200 is compatible and easily integrated with the MeteoPV Solar Resource Platform and any Campbell Scientific datalogger using SDI-12, RS-485, ModbusRS-485, or NMEA RS-232.

Benefits and Features

  • Quality measurements
