Gill Instruments’ MetPak compact weather station range is now offered with a new MODBUS output for building control and automation applications.

MetPak weather station now with MODBUSGill Instruments has expanded the MetPak multi-sensor weather station range with the introduction of a new MODBUS output connection.

The complete MetPak range is now available with an industry recognised MODBUS communication protocol as standard, alongside the existing ASCII, NMEA 0183 and SDI-12 outputs. The new output allows industrial and building control users to connect MetPak base station units to a network of multiple devices as part of an integrated computer or SCADA system.

Used throughout industry, the MODBUS output communicates with multiple measurement devices to provide greater data collection via one supervisory computer.

Already well-established in marine, industrial and meteorological applications, MetPak units provide accurate data to oil platform, railway, emergency response vehicle and solar energy customers. The MetPak family are solid-state, lightweight weather stations and are operational in some of the world’s most extreme operating conditions and inhospitable locations.

With on-board processing electronics, the multi-sensor base stations have the ability to supply building control and automation markets with over 6 weather monitoring parameters. These include wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, air temperature, humidity, dew point and precipitation.  In addition MetPak is capable of supporting a number of independent sensors, combining their outputs to produce an integrated data message.

At just 2.1kg, MetPak weather stations are extremely portable delivering easy installation and maintenance in difficult to reach areas. The successful weather station range can now offer its exceptional quality data and unparalleled reliability to a wide range of building and energy industries as part of an integrated communication system.

“The expansion of the MetPak range is very exciting for us” says Richard McKay, Meteorologist and Product Manager at Gill Instruments “The MODBUS upgrade will take the MetPak firmly into the industrial market, giving us the ability to supply a high quality measurement system to our industrial MODBUS customers at no extra cost.”

MetPak weather stations with new MODBUS output is now available to buy from Gill Instruments.
