Weather Station Installation

The weather station uses the Oregon Scientific WMR968 Wireless Weather Station. This complete weather station comes equipped with outdoor sensors that operate on solar power, which provides easy installation. Data is wireless transmitted from the sensors to the display console which means no messy cable installations. This station also has seven channels and accepts up to three additional sensors.

The weather sensors are mounted on a roof mast to provide maximum exposure  for the temperature and humidity sensors from ambient heat sources such as building walls. The temperature sensor is enclosed in a RM Young Model 41003P Gill Multi-Plate Radiation Shield to prevent direct sun exposure from dramatically influencing temperature readings.
