MaxiMet Compact Weather Stations


MetConnect is a highly flexible, multi-parameter weather station. Individual sensors can be placed together in a compact arrangement, or separated to suit individual application requirements. Additional sensors can be added to the system, and the measurements added to the data reported by the station.

MetConnect is available in two models: MetConnect One, with an integrated wind sensor, and MetConnect THP without a wind sensor.

MetConnect is an update of the MetPak product range.

MetConnect weather stations

MetConnect weather stations are designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom. The product is a result of Gill Instruments’ 30 years of experience designing products for the professional weather market, and builds on the success of MetPak.

MetConnect is a flexible platform that allows the user to select the sensors most relevant to their application, and combines data from those sensors with data from MetConnect’s integrated sensors. This approach reduces power and communications complexity and provides time synchronized data from multiple sensors.

MetConnect One offers an easy to use, integrated weather station. MetConnect THP is available if the application does not require wind measurement or the user wishes to select a remote anemometer.

A range of accessories is available to support MetConnect.
