The Vaisala Automatic Weather Station AWS310 is an innovative solution for reliable and accurate environmental measurements. As a stand-alone weather data collection system, Vaisala AWS310 requires minimal maintenance. It can also be customized to operate as part of an existing data collection system or AWS network. The unit is ideal for professional applications from synoptic meteorology and climatological research, to hydrology and urban meteorology.
Preconfigured or customized
The Automatic Weather Station provides a complete solution. Enclosure, mast, sensors, sensor installation kits, powering equipment, and telemetry devices – everything needed to start taking accurate and reliable weather measurements. The AWS310 comes with from a range of reconfigured options including sensor set, telemetry components, and power setup. If you have special requirements, the AWS310 is customizable upon request, as is the reporting format – enabling integration into any data collection system.
The weather station includes built-in algorithms that test each measurement to ensure quality. The minimum and maximum readings of every parameter are thoroughly tested, as are the step limits. The results can then be visualized using the optional Vaisala MCC301 PC software, which displays meteorological data in numerical and graphical formats while automatically saving it to the PC hard drive.
Logged meteorological data is saved on the data logger’s internal memory or on an external compact flash card, but it can also be transmitted to a remote workstation as a real-time feed. The AWS310 has a variety of standard and custom connectivity options available depending on your system’s location and specification. Choose from terminal, Ethernet, and GPRS/GSM as standard, or get 3G, landline, and other satellite options as part of a custom setup. update and maintain remotely
Users need not be on site to update or adjust sensor settings – the AWS310 can be reached remotely, with self-diagnostic reports available from the data logger and from the sensors. The AWS310 can also automatically download a new configuration file from a network server, making maintenance even easier.
Calibration is vital to ensure the accuracy and reliability of weather station data. AWS310 sensors have excellent long-term stability with a low risk of drifting or sudden changes in calibration. This results in longer calibration intervals, saving maintenance costs and reducing downtime.
On-site calibration equipment checks and adjusts air pressure, air temperature, relative humidity, wind , and visibility. In addition, high-quality laboratory calibration services are available for your sensors and components in Vaisala Service Centers.
Reliable data is not collected without skilled technical staff to operate and maintain weather stations. Training courses provide an excellent overall understanding of the AWS310 system, and also cover how to install, operate, troubleshoot, and conduct any necessary field repairs.
