Description

The Weather Meter Kit from SparkFun is the essential tool for measuring weather conditions accurately and efficiently. Whether you're a weather enthusiast or a professional meteorologist, this kit provides you with the three core components of weather measurement: wind speed, wind direction, and rainfall.

Unlike other weather sensors, the sensors included in this kit do not require active electronics. They utilize sealed magnetic reed switches and magnets, making them easy to interpret. However, you will need to provide a voltage source to take measurements. This design ensures reliable and accurate weather data collection.

The rain gauge in this kit is a self-emptying bucket-type rain gauge. It triggers a momentary button closure for every 0.011" of rain collected, allowing you to accurately measure rainfall. The anemometer, or wind speed meter, encodes wind speed by simply closing a switch with each rotation. Even a wind speed as low as 1.492 MPH can be detected, enabling you to track changes in wind speed effectively. The wind vane measures wind direction by producing a voltage through a combination of resistors. With its magnet, it can close two switches at once, offering up to 16 different positions for precise wind direction readings.

To simplify installation and setup, all the sensors come with RJ11 terminated cables. For detailed information about pin-out configurations, refer to the included datasheet.

FAQs:

Q: What are the components included in the Weather Meter Kit?

A: The kit includes a wind vane, cup anemometer, tipping bucket rain gauge, two-part mounting mast, rain gauge mounting arm, wind meter mounting bar, 2 x mounting clamps, and 4 x zip ties.

Q: How do the sensors in the kit work?

A: The rain gauge is a self-emptying bucket-type rain gauge that activates a momentary button closure for each 0.011" of rain collected. The anemometer encodes wind speed by closing a switch with each rotation, and the wind vane reports wind direction as a voltage produced by resistors inside the sensor.

Q: Are the sensors in the kit wireless?

A: No, the sensors in the kit do not have wireless capabilities. They require a voltage source to take measurements.

Q: What resources are available for using the Weather Meter Kit?

A: The kit includes a datasheet and assembly guide. Additionally, there is a tutorial available on the product page for hookup and usage guidance.

Q: Can I use the Weather Meter Kit with the micro:bit for a wireless remote weather station?

A: Yes, there is a tutorial available on the product page that explains how to create a wireless remote weather station using the Weather Meter Kit and micro:bit.
