Wind2Measure Data Logger Advanced set up for 2 x wind speed and direction and temperature
RAIN GAUGE - DAVIS INSTRUMENTS
The rain gauge is used for constant measurement of precipitation including its amount, time of occurrence and intensity.
It can be installed 1 metre above the ground level on a mounting pole or placed straight on a flat surface.
During measurements the amount of the rainfall is measured with accuracy of 0,2mm.
The sensor has been designed to meet the guidelines of the World Meteorological Organization.
After connecting the rain gauge with Wind2measure.com Data Logger you get a device that can log the amount and intensity of rainfall at a chosen location.
The rain gauge is fully compatible with the data loggers manufactured by Wind2measure.com.
The following accessories are included in the rain gauge:
- Rain cone with grips
- Bird spikes
- Debris screen
- 40 ft (12 m) cable
- Mounting hardware
Or a RAIN GAUGE - KALYX-RG
KALYX-RG rain gauge is used for constant meteorological measurements made by professionals and other users who plan to make advanced precipitation study.
The sensor is based on a tipping bucket mechanism which automatically tips when a certain amount of precipitation accumulates inside of it. Total precipitation is determined by the number of tips.
The unique aerodynamic shape of the rain gauge reduces the effect of wind blowing and carrying rainfall away from the collecting vessel.
The tipping bucket type sensor does not accumulate rainfall and does not need to be emptied.
The rain gauge is manufactured by EML (Environmental Measurements Limited), a British company that specializes in designing various sensors used for professional meteorological measurements.
The sensor is fully compatible with data loggers manufactured by Wind2measure.com.
The Advance Data Logger can be configured with one of the following Wind Speed & Direction Sensors

PM1S and PM1D WIND SPEED and DIRECTION SENSORS
PM1S and PM1D sensors give you a reliable accuracy of the wind measurement which is sufficient when planning an investment in a micro or small wind system. They are the ideal data transmitters for simple requirement, especially where economical solutions are requested. They are fully compatible with the wind loggers manufactured by wind2measure.com.
The sensors are delivered together with an aluminium fixing that enables an easy mounting on a met mast or other construction.
THIES WIND SPEED and DIRECTION SENSORS
The sensors are produced by a German company Thies Clima - one of the leading manufacturers of systems, instruments and sensors for the measurement of meteorological parameters. Their products are characterized by a high degree of instrument precision and quality. Selected and tested materials of the sensors ensure the operation even under extreme conditions. Their supporting and dynamic parts of are made of synthetic materials, guaranteeing a long working life with absolutely no maintenance.
Data Analysis System
A Data Analysis system to see all measurements on precise graphs, histograms and the wind rose and analyse the data, is provided FREE and comes with every Data Logger BASIC and ADVANCED.
The Data Analysis System is fully compatible with Data Loggers manufactured by Wind2measure.com. Files generated by the logger can be easily downloaded and analysed on your computer, laptop or tablet.
After downloading the data from the logger, the system presents recorded data on line graphs with the zoom-in option. It also displays a wind distribution chart, average temperature & rain and a wind rose. The Data Logger Advanced users will also get the battery voltage charts.
The System enables exporting all data to CSV file. It allows a detailed analysis of the measurement in spreadsheets or other dedicated software.
Exporting the wind speed distribution chart to CSV file gives you the possibility to calculate the amount of energy generated for you by selected wind turbines. Wind2measure.com provides an MS Excel calculator to prepare such forecasts.
