The Airmar 110WX WeatherStation accurately measures wind speed and direction, air temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity in a compact platform with no moving parts. The 110WX features configurable RS422 and CAN BUS digital data outputs, providing unparalleled versatility for nearly all weather monitoring needs. The many new benefits of the 110WX include:
- Removable humidity sensor that is field serviceable
- IPX6 waterproof rating
- New power supply featuring a 50% reduction in current draw
- Wider operating voltage range of 9-40 VDC
- Adjustable, unfiltered wind data for monitoring maximum gust conditions
- Output via a single cable for power and data interface
- Low-cost, easy to install units either permanently or as a portable system
- Units can be installed on a standard pole with 1”-14 UNS or ¾” NPT threads
- (1) 110WX WeatherStation
- (1) Post mount with 1-14 UNS threads
- (1) WeatherCaster Software CD
- (1) Calibration Certificate
- (1) Owner's Manual
The optional relative humidity sensor is accurate within 4% RH.
The humidity sensor is installed underneath the WeatherStation to protect it from the elements.
In The News
Monitoring the weather isn’t just important for producing forecasts on TV news. It’s key to managing a whole host of other things, like expensive livestock, commercial fishing operations and even in the success of military warfare.
The folks at Airmar Technology Corporation know this firsthand, as weather monitoring products they make have been integral to the good outcomes of many projects over the years. Their current lineup of weather stations is full of high-quality sensors that deliver results, including the 110WX , 150WX and 200WX Ultrasonic WeatherStation Instruments.
These three options all boast the ability to gather basic weather parameters, but are ideally suited for different projects.Read More
Airmar’s business model is built entirely around transducers, mainly for boating and environmental applications. That meant it was only natural to base the WX Series WeatherStations around four transducers.
“The weather station uses transducers to measure wind ultrasonically,” said Irene Robb, Airmar product manager.
The four transducers are paired to send ultrasonic sound waves back and forth. Wind passes through a horizontal gap in the weather sensor housing and pushes the sound waves around.
The WX Series measures wind speed and direction based on delays or accelerations in sound wave transmission. Robb said Airmar engineers designed them to operate at a low frequency to minimize interferences.Read More
They’re cruising slowly down the highway in a big RV, with an air intake pipe hanging off the front. Don’t be fooled--this is not some leisure ride.
This cast of researchers is out to see the U.S. and sample its methane concentrations.
"I was the guy on the right lane driving at 40 miles an hour on the interstate,” said Ira Leifer, a researcher with the University of California Santa Barbara’s Marine Science Institute.
After years of studying methane, Leifer decided to turn the drive home from a 2010 research cruise on the Gulf of Mexico into a methane study. So, he outfitted a rented RV with a gas chromatograph and an air intake pipe to sample methane during the drive from Florida to California.Read More
