PDS-WX-3 Weather Sensor
- Ultrasonic wind readings up to 40 m/s
- True wind speed and direction
- Barometric pressure
- Air temperature
- Calculated wind chill temperature
- Relative humidity
- Heat index
- 10 Hz GPS (COG/SOG/Position)
- Two-axis solid state compass
Three-axis accelerometer for pitch and roll
Output options include NMEA 0183 (RS422 / NMEA 2000® (CAN BUS), NMEA 0183 (RS232)
Reliability and superior accuracy, along with no moving parts and plug and play installation, makes the PDS WX-3 an easy and affordable choice for any weather solution.
The ability to provide true wind speed and direction readings makes it a suitable weather sensor for use in moving vehicle applications (e.g. farm machinery, emergency service vehicles, marine vehicles). Also included is a 10Hz GPS, solid state compass and three-axis accelerometer for pitch and roll to assist in navigation, particularly for marine vessels.
The PDS WX-3 has also been developed with a 50% reduction in current draw for use in remote locations where solar or battery power is in use. Pacific Data Systems can design and build complete weather stations incorporating the PDS-WX-3 Ultrasonic Weather Sensor to meet your project requirements.
