The MP Series compact weather sensors are designed for robust and maintenance-free measurements in hydrology, meteorology and weather-critical applications where durability, precision and operations in different climatic conditions are required.

The compact devices allow for single or all-in-one measurements of up to 7 parameters such as:

  • Wind speed for 60 m/s or 75 m/s (option)
  • Wind direction
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Air-pressure
  • Rainfall
  • Radiation

All sensors have been tested and approved against following environment conditions:

  • High and low temperature ranges
  • Humid weather (humidity and ingress protection)
  • Windy and coastal environments (vibration and salt spray sustainability)
  • Low costs of installation and total costs of ownership
  • Aluminum alloy with teflon coating for harshest environment
  • Product portfolio to suit best to automatic weather stations
  • Build-In data processing and algorithm
  • Universal and selectable interfaces and protocols such as SDI-12 or RS 485 (MODBUS-RTU, ASCII, NMEA 0183)
  • Easy integration into 3rd party systems
  • Low power consumption to be supplied by solar power packages
  • No moving parts and maintenance-free with high IP grade 66
  • Sustainability and high accuracy at entire wide temperature operating range from -40 to + 70 °C (non-heated versions)
  • Metric and imperial units
  • Unheated versions: Operating measuring and deployment temperature range from -40 °C to +70° C
  • Heated versions: Heating control range from -10 °C to +4 °C for wind speed and direction
  • Extended versions for models E-H with wind speed up to 75 m/s, heater, ventilation for T/RH and electronic compass

WeatherSens MP is especially suitable for hydro-meteorological applications by one sensor design and construction, e.g. for

  • Automatic Weather Stations
  • Smart Cities, Urban Areas and Municipalities
  • Road weather monitoring
  • Road traffic and railway traffic/energy control systems
  • Bridges and tunnel monitoring
  • Photovoltaic farms
  • Chemical and industrial areas
  • Building Automation
  • Harbour monitoring and container terminals
  • Airfield and helicopter landing platform
  • Offshore platforms and wind Energy Industry
