Wireless Weather Stations for Home Weather, Education, Home Automation, Recreational, Environmental, and Industrial Applications

WeatherHawk 916 wireless weather stations are designed for easy installation and use by consumers, educators, students, and resource managers. WeatherHawk is ideal for applications where ease of installation and use are key factors. WeatherHawk 916 is preprogrammed to provide simple meteorological data, including the complex calculation of ETo (evapotranspiration) typically used for landscape and crop management. WeatherHawk wireless weather stations are also conforms to many existing home automation protocols.

The WeatherHawk 916 weather station uses Internet-compatible Virtual WeatherStation software. It is supplied fully assembled. The assembly includes meteorological sensors, and a protective case that houses the on-board microprocessor, rechargeable battery pack and spread spectrum radio transceiver. The battery is recharged via AC power or a solar panel. WeatherHawk wireless weather stations and solar panels are easily attached to a 1¼" to 2" O.D. pole (optional or user-supplied).

The WeatherHawk 916 on-board microprocessor automatically measures the sensors, then stores the data in an on-board data logger before transmitting the data to a user-supplied remote PC. A spread spectrum radio is supplied to connect to the PC and receive transmissions from WeatherHawk 916 wireless weather stations. With typical line-of-sight conditions the WeatherHawk 916 spread spectrum radio can transmit over distances of up to one-half a mile. Optional WeatherHawk 916 accessories can increase the wireless transmission range up to 7 miles (please inquire).

User installation is as simple as 1-2-3-4:

1-Remove the WeatherHawk from the shipping box (no assembly required).

2-Install the WeatherHawk and solar panel on the user-supplied pole.

3-Attach the RF400 Spread Spectrum Radio to a serial port on the usersupplied Host PC.

4-Install Virtual Weather Software and turn on the WeatherHawk weather station switch.

Within minutes, a typical user can begin monitoring weather information directly on the Host PC, and remotely over the Internet.
