MetPak Pro with Integrated WindSonic

MetPak Pro Weather Station

This variant of the MetPak Pro features the same on-board sensors as the Base Station, with an integrated WindSonic ultrasonic wind sensor for high accuracy wind speed and direction measurement. This unit also features inputs for up to four external measurement devices including Gill's precision tipping bucket Rain Gauge.

MetPak Pro Full Configuration

For users who require a remotely mounted wind sensor or who have more specialist wind sensing requirements, MetPak Pro can also be specified with one of Gill's range of 2-axis or 3-axis ultrasonic wind sensors.

The selected sensor is mounted remotely, up to 10m away from the Base Station typically on a mast or tower.
