The new adapters extend the range of wind monitoring applications that are possible with Onset weather stations, while broadening the company’s weather sensor product offerings.
“While we already offer a number of research-grade wind sensors, linking up with RM Young sensors opens up many new harsh-environment applications such as wind site evaluation, wind turbine performance monitoring, coastal weather monitoring, and air quality monitoring,” said Paul Gannett, product marketing manager for Onset.
Onset’s line of research-grade weather stations, which start at $215, include HOBO U30 Remote Monitoring Systems, 4-channel HOBO Micro Stations, and 15-channel HOBO Weather Stations. The systems offer plug-and-play operation, and can be equipped with a range of sensors for measuring air temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, barometric pressure, and more. A range of data communications options are available, including GSM cellular, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and direct USB.
The new Wind Sensor Adapters are priced from $150 and will be available from Onset on March 31, 2009. Visit the Onset web site for more information.
