The model 150WX is AIRMAR’s solution for stationary, deployable, and mobile land based weather monitoring applications. Feature rich, and encased in a durable, rugged, small footprint that is IPX6 rated has enabled the model 150WX to be successfully deployed as an integral component for numerous stationary and deployable solutions, most notably the JBTDS HazMat program. (NOTE: The model 150WX with built-in GPS and electronic compass is often the model of choice for portable deployable solutions and land based stationary applications based on its GPS position and time stamping functionality and compass heading which self-aligns to North. Therefore orienting the sensor to North is not required.)
The model 150WX calculates the theoretical wind speed and direction based upon the apparent wind, speed of the vehicle/vessel, and vehicle/vessel heading. Theoretical wind speed and direction is significant for numerous applications and is often mission-critical. The WeatherStation 150WX has been integrated into a mobile agriculture OEM platform and enabled several mobile agriculture after-market solution providers to enhance their solutions.
