Gill Instruments to launch new MaxiMet models at CMHE Expo 2016

The MaxiMet range of compact weather stations by Gill Instruments has expanded to include two new variants which will be launched at CMHE 2016 – the 8th China Exhibition on Technology and Equipment of Meteorology Science and Hydrology.
MaxiMet GMX551 All-in-one weather station
The GMX551 features a new integrated connector to which any 0.2mm rain gauge can be linked
 MaxiMet, which was launched in 2014, offers 11 models, each designed to meet different customer weather measurement requirements. The latest models, GMX531 and GMX551 feature additional precipitation options and have been developed in response to customer requests for high performance in heavy convective conditions. Each of the new all-in-one weather stations includes instruments to measure temperature, pressure, wind and solar radiation. The GMX531 also includes an aerodynamic tipping bucket rain gauge with a 20m cable, which links directly to the weather station via an integrated connector, while the GMX551 includes the integrated connector to which any 0.2mm rain gauge can be linked. The aerodynamic rain gauge supplied with the GMX531 features a typical 0.2mm resolution and is capable of measuring precipitation up to 1000mm per hour at ±2%  accuracy. The 20m cable  provided allows the rain gauge to be positioned in accordance with WMO Guidelines under most circumstances. This ensures minimal interference from local structures, making the measurements as accurate as possible.

“The MaxiMet range of all-in-one weather stations carries many unique features and our new models allow us to offer users flexibility in the way they are measuring heavy precipitation, whilst remaining in accordance with WMO Guidelines.” says Paul Rogers, Head of Sales at Gill Instruments. “Since its launch, MaxiMet has proven incredibly popular with a wide variety of users and its popularity is partly due to the many configurations available and flexibility offered throughout the range.” All of the MaxiMet models, along with Gill’s range of ultrasonic anemometers, will be on stand 3179 at CMHE from the 19th– 21st June in Beijing’s National Convention Centre.

WindUltra, Gill's latest high performance wind sensors, are proving to be market leading on a number of fronts:


MaxiMet now has extended performance in freezing conditions due to the new heated option.


Fantastic achievement by Saildrone to gain a Guiness World Record for the highest wind speed recorded by a USV. We're very proud to say they chose a Gill WindMaster 3-axis ultrasonic anemometer as part of their Saildrone platform to measure wind speed and direction.


We are very pleased to announce that Gill Group has been shortlisted in the Supply Chain Excellence category of the Manufacturer MX Awards 2023!
