Data Logger-equipped
Meteorological Observation Systems
With these systems, analog or digital output from observation sensors is input to a data logger, with converts all signals to digital data. That data is then stored in the data logger internal memory or written to a flash memory card. Recorded elements include wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, precipitation, and voltage (snow accumulation, barometric pressure, pulse values are also available as options). By connecting the data logger to a personal computer and using specially designed application software, the instantaneous and 10-minute average values can be collected in RS232C format and either displayed on screen or printed. Three different options are available for the connection between the data logger and PC: direct connection, connection via a modem, or connection via a card reader.
The data logger can store from approximately one month to six months of data (varies depending on model.)
