|Komatsu Factory Co.'s Weather Monitoring
Network System is ideal for use as a subsystem
in disaster prevention, environmental monitoring,
or other similar applications. This integrated
system automatically collects and manages
meteorological data at a given location.
Included in the system are meteorological
observation sensors (standard components:
wind speed/direction sensor, rain gauge,
thermometer, and hygrometer), a data logger,
a personal computer, and application software
for data collection, management, and display.
The Weather Monitoring Network System can
also be set up to automatically collect via
public telephone lines precipitation data
from digital rain gauges located at multiple
observation sites. The collected data can
be displayed on-screen, and used to generate
and print daily, monthly, or yearly charts.
