The MaxiMet range of compact weather stations is designed and manufactured by Gill Instruments. MaxiMet products use reliable, high quality instruments to provide accurate meteorological information in a wide variety of applications.
Temperature, humidity, pressure. A combined instrument mounted inside three double louvered, naturally aspirated radiation shields with no moving parts. The results are high performance across each measurement over long periods of time.
Solar radiation. An integrated solar radiation sensor/pyranometer. This highly accurate instrument uses a thermal sensor mounted at its base and protected by a single glass dome to record the amount of light in watts per metre². It is widely used in agro-meteorological applications and for monitoring the performance of solar panels.
Wind. Wind speed and direction measurements are provided via an ultrasonic sensor and the addition of an electronic compass provides apparent wind measurement. Average speed and direction together with WMO averages and gust data is also provided. Add GPS (optional) to provide true wind and other features.
Precipitation. An integrated side connector allows users to connect any tipping bucket rain gauge and select the tip size from 0-9.998 mm. The measurements are included in the output data string.
