Weather Stations utilize snow level sensor option.

October 7, 2015

Available as option for Weather MicroServer which can be used with any CWS weather station model, Snow Level Sensor transmits ultrasonic pulsed sound wave through air to meet reflective object, such as snow. When sound wave makes contact with target, it bounces back toward sensor, which records time required for sound wave to travel to target and return. Using speed of sound, sensor calculates distance to object. Read More

Rainfall Monitoring System reduces damage from flooding.

January 20, 2014

STORM Guardian™ logs rainfall data from remote locations to predict if flood conditions are present. Using GPRS antenna, unit transmits rainfall data to TimeView™ website so that users can access information in real-time. Tipping bucket rain gauge system features rugged, non-corrosive construction and is powered by field-replaceable lithium battery packs that last for up to 7 years. Bucket size can be set at 0.1, 0.2, or 0.5 mm of rainfall with ±2% accuracy at .25 gph.

Rain Sensor automates window and vent closing.

January 16, 2013

Based on same principle used in automotive windshield wiper control systems, RG-11 Optical Rain Gauge is sensitive to even tiny amounts of rain, and stops sensing when rain stops, without having to wait for water to evaporate. Device may be set as On/Off indicator or used to emulate tipping bucket where qualitative measurement of rainfall rate is desired. Immune to external contaminants, sensor is suitable for greenhouses, agriculture, and louver vents. Read More
