Compare Weather Stations

Gill offers two ranges of Weather Station: MaxiMet and MetConnect.

MaxiMet range - compact professional weather stations

The MaxiMet range includes a number of compact integrated weather stations. These products are simple to install and use and provide high quality measurements for general applications. The MaxiMet range is popular for applications where size, ease of integration and low maintenance are high priorities. Example applications include smart cities, smart agriculture and mobile measurement systems.

MetConnect range - reference grade professional weather stations

The MetConnect range provides a high level of flexibility, allowing different sensors to be placed at different heights (in line with WMO recommendations) and the connection of additional, user selected, sensors. Examples of MetConnect/MetPak users include national atmospheric administrations and meteorological offices.
