The Airmar 200WX WeatherStation meets a growing need for real-time, site-specific weather information. For moving applications where true and apparent wind are different, the 200WX includes additional sensors such as a 10Hz GPS, solid-state compass and tilt sensors. The 200WX features configurable RS422 and CAN BUS digital data outputs, providing unparalleled versatility for nearly all weather monitoring needs. The many new benefits of the 200WX 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) 200WX WeatherStation
- (1) Post mount with 1-14 UNS threads
- (1) WeatherCaster Software CD
- (1) Calibration Certificate
- (1) Owner's Manual
The three-axis solid-state compass with dynamic stabilization offers better than 1 degree static accuracy and 2 degree dynamic accuracy.
The Airmar WeatherStation does not store any data internally, but it can be easily connected to a PC for data transfer. PC connection requires Airmar's WeatherCaster software (included with all WX WeatherStations) and a USB converter.
It is possible. In wet conditions, including snow, rain and sea spray, wind speed error can increase from 1-2 mph (1-2 knots) up to 5.7 mph (5 knots).

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio.
Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay.
Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.Read More
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
