Weather Maestro Weather Station

Our Weather Maestro data loggers designed specifically for recording environmental conditions.  The Weather Maestro has been developed by Environdata to form the core of our modular Automatic Weather Station.  With 10, 16 and 20 channel versions of the Weather Maestro data logger available, we can build the exact weather station you need to best meet your weather monitoring requirements.

Weather Station Data Logger

The Weather Maestro weather stations are designed and built in Australia to survive in harsh conditions. Environdata weather stations are located throughout Australia: the Simpson Desert, several kilometres off the Tasmanian coast, Uluru, tropical Cape Tribulation and remote Gove in the Northern Territory are just a few of the more extreme examples

These robust, modular weather stations are specifically designed to be easy to install, easy to use, and easy to maintain. Supplied pre-programmed from Environdata’s Queensland factory and backed up by detailed handbooks and full manufacturer support, your new weather station will be accurate, reliable and dependable.

The Weather Maestro can accept up to 20 sensors and you can choose from Environdata’s high quality Weather Sensors, or 3rd party sensors with a simple interface.

The extensive on-board non-volatile memory provides capacity for an average of 1,000,000 sets of readings, all with an individual date and time stamp, critical to maintaining data integrity. As well as a dedicated current readings 1-minute summary, the memory is divided into 3 separate areas. A typical program would allow for a 10-minute summary, an hourly summary and a daily summary. Of course these intervals are easily customized to suit your required logging schedule.

In real terms, the Weather Maestro Weather Station has capacity for more than 1 year of data including ten minute, hourly and daily summaries, all in secure non-volatile flash memory.

Your Weather Maestro Weather Station can also perform high-level calculations, such as Sigma Theta for dust, odour or pollutant dispersion studies, FAO56 evaporation or evapotranspiration calculations with solar radiation or net radiation, HLI, THI, AHLU for monitoring animal comfort in feedlot situations, and over 250 standard calculations such as averages, means, minimum & maximum values.

Specifically designed with remote sites in mind, the Weather Maestro has low power consumption and is ideal for solar power, which we supply as standard with most systems.

The collected weather data is sent to the collecting device (usually a PC, PLC or RTU) as ASCII text, with a native output in RS232 Serial format. This data is easily readable by humans and also easily interpreted by any third party application for custom integration. Environdata also provides a MODBUS interface if required, further enhancing the ease of connecting to your control system.

Weather Sensors

Environdata manufactures a wide range of high quality weather sensors, designed to be accurate, tough and reliable.  Using a frequency-based signal ensures reliable transmission of the data to the data logger and allows for ‘continuous’ monitoring, not spot sampling.  This means your recorded weather data represents the true weather conditions

Weather Station Communications

Environdata supplies UHF radio links for short range (up to 5km) to medium range (up to 15km), and VHF radio links for longer distances.  We also supply Next G modems for use on the Telstra network.  These telemetry options combined with direct cable, Ethernet converters & Internet page display means Environdata can get the weather data from your Weather Maestro Weather Station to you, delivering your weather data when you want it, where you want it and how you want it.

Weather Station Software

Environdata has designed EasiAccess, a simple to operate yet sophisticated software package that includes data collection, storage and display modules.  Multiple Weather Stations can be managed efficiently as the data is stored internally in a powerful database, which allows you to graph data to preset or custom values, and also compare data from different recording sites.

Environdata also designs and sells AirData firmware & Sigma Theta firmware for tracking wind movement and dispersion, WindRose software for graphically summarizing the wind distribution over time, and WeatherMation software to provide access via a secure login web portal, including alerts by SMS or email.

Summary

The Weather Maestro is a robust, Australian Made data logger designed to form the heart of a reliable and tough professional, industrial or scientific weather station.   Using the Weather Maestro as the core of your Weather Station will provide you the peace of mind you are buying the best equipment for the job, at a very reasonable price, with Australian backup and support direct from the manufacturer.

Simply choose up to 20 weather sensors you need to record, confirm if you need to meet the Australian Standards including the use of a 10m-instrument mast, and choose a method of collecting the data. Environdata’s WeatherMation Web Portal with alerts and notifications functionality will help deliver your full weather monitoring solution. Your weather data, where, when and how you need it.
