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.
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 optical rain gauge that automatically senses water hitting its outside surface and provides measurements based on the size and number of drops. Algorithms interpret this data and simulate the output of a tipping bucket rain gauge in a serial format. The optical rain gauge has no moving parts associated with tipping bucket gauges.
