MetPak Pro Base Station

The MetPak Pro Base Station features an on-board barometric pressure sensor and Rotronic Hygroclip temperature/humidity probe. A Pt100 temperature sensor, tipping bucket Rain Gauge (available from Gill) and two analogue sensors (water level sensor, pyranometer, pressure sensor, soil temperature sensor etc) can also be connected directly to the Base station or via an optional junction box.

MetPak Pro with Integrated WindSonic

This variant of the MetPak Pro features the same on-board sensors as the Base Station, with an integrated WindSonic ultrasonic wind sensor for high accuracy wind speed and direction measurement. This unit also features inputs for up to four external measurement devices including Gill's precision tipping bucket Rain Gauge.

MetPak Pro Full Configuration

For users who require a remotely mounted wind sensor or who have more specialist wind sensing requirements, MetPak Pro can also be specified with one of Gill's range of 2-axis or 3-axis ultrasonic wind sensors.

The selected sensor is mounted remotely, up to 10m away from the Base Station typically on a mast or tower.
