Campbell Scientific MetPRO Research-Grade Meteorological Station

The GRWS100 is a mid-level, low-power, portable weather station with a tiltable mast. It makes general meteorological measurements but is flexible enough to be adapted to a wide variety of weather-based applications. The GRWS100 can calculate many related weather parameters such as evapotranspiration, growing degree days, wind chill, dew point, and more.

You can enhance an existing research project or meet the needs of a new project by adding sensors, control devices, and telecommunication devices to the standard GRWS100. Most of the weather stations we sell are customized. Tell us what you need and we’ll help you configure a station that meets your exact needs.

 

Description

Measurements

Most of the systems we sell are customized. These systems, however, typically measure the following parameters:

  • Wind speed
  • Wind direction
  • Air temperature
  • Relative humidity
  • Barometric pressure
  • Precipitation
  • Solar radiation
  • Soil volumetric water content

Benefits and Features

  • Defensible weather data obtainable with high-accuracy instruments
  • Remote system deployment for unattended long-term monitoring
  • Low-power system design, operating on a battery recharged by a solar panel
  • Durable system components for reduced maintenance overhead
  • Remote IP-based modem communication supported
  • Customizable system for specific application needs

Detailed Description

The PRO-series stations offer new options for those looking to deploy a complete weather station solution for many research, operational, and meteorological applications. All of these stations are designed to be research-grade, although there are some differences that may affect your selection. The MesoPRO and MetPRO stations are built using the best blend of components for accuracy, durability, and reliability. The WxPRO uses quality instruments at a lower price for researchers on a tight budget.

The MesoPRO is intended for applications where having a 30 ft (10 m) tower is desired for permanence, as well as the opportunity to make measurements at many different heights. Common users of this configuration are operators of large networks (such as mesonets), as well as researchers that need a permanent solution with the flexibility to add or change instruments in the future.

The MetPRO uses the same high-quality instruments as the MesoPRO, but offers the solution with a convenient 10 ft (3 m) tripod rather than a tower for mounting hardware. The tripod adds mobility for shorter-term research projects and offers an easier method to install a full meteorological station.

The WxPRO is an entry-level weather station solution that has many of the features of the higher-end systems at a lower price point. It is ideal for budget-conscious researchers who need confidence in their data from the use of quality instruments.

Specifications for individual instruments on the stations can be viewed on the product page for each component.
