200WX WeatherStation® Instrument - Land-based, Mobile, Standalone
The WeatherStation 200WX is the best choice for mobile, land-based, weather-monitoring applications. Sensor-rich, durable, rugged, small housing that is IPX6 rated, means the 200WX can be used on moving platforms such as TV news and military vehicles.
Knowing the theoretical wind speed and direction is important and often mission-critical. The 200WX calculates the theoretical wind speed and direction based on the apparent wind (the wind you would feel on your hand if you held it out while moving), the speed of the vehicle, and the vehicle heading. Its internal 10 Hz GPS and three-axis electronic compass provides heading, position, speed-over-ground, and course-over-ground functionality that is necessary for theoretical wind-data processing on a moving vehicle.
The 3D compass with dynamic stabilization provided by the three-axis rate gyro enhances the rate-of-turn data. The patented 200WX maintains dynamic compass performance in hilly and mountainous terrain—common in military situations.
