Why are Environdata weather stations the best choice for research scientists?
Supplied Configured and Ready to Go
Our weather stations for scientific research applications are factory calibrated and pre-programmed to suit your requirements so you can install, switch on and have a fully operational weather station the same day. Environdata's weather stations arrive as a modular kit, are easy to install, maintain and are Australian made.
High Levels of Accuracy and Reliability
Environdata uses its own proprietary pulse technology between its sensors and the recorder. This pulse signal is highly electrically-noise resistant and provides high accuracy and reliability. It maintains these characteristics over long cable lengths – 100 metres or more – allowing sensors to be physically diverse and still connected to the one recorder.
Easy to Maintain
Our standard sensors are pre-calibrated so that replacement sensors are fully inter-changeable without the need to alter scaling or calibration values in the recorder. This simplifies maintenance and inventory requirements.
All cabling connections are made with weatherproof Connectors that lock in place - removing the need for wiring on site and unreliable cable glands. Easy for the researcher to connect and configure.
For all customers, we provide a high level of Australian based support by telephone, email and internet based connection. We also offer installation and onsite servicing.
Environdata also supplies a range of communication options that are fully integrated into our sealed weather station housings. Multiple communication options can also be accommodated. Solutions include TCP/IP connections, Cellular data connections, Satellite connections and UHF connections. Contact us for suitable site specific recommendations.
Our weather stations are designed to be power efficient, whether your stations are solar powered, mains powered or externally powered. Our stations are ideal for remote site operation as often required by scientific researchers.
The weather station data loggers include a large permanent memory that is segregated into a number of independent memory sections. The memories can hold daily summaries for up to five years, with more intensive hourly and typically ten minute data for up to one year. The memory operation is automatic, and once a memory is full, that memory deletes its oldest data so that new data can be recorded. Sometimes referred to as a 'rolling drum' memory.
Memories are pre-programmed for you, and customisable to fit your needs.
Depending on the requirements of your research, our stations can also include alarm capabilities, via SMS or Email, or triggering a local siren or other device.

Environdata's weather stations provide an outstanding accuracy and reliability that will provide you with exactly what you need for your scientific research program.
