Paraglider Weather Stations
As a paraglider, weather can be your best friend and your worst enemy. Your ability to go out with customers or for your own recreation is entirely dependent on the weather. There are regional forecasts readily available, but the best option is always the one that gives you the most accurate, up to date information for your location at a moments notice; and that is exactly what a Dyacon weather station will do for you.
Similar to ASOS and AWOS systems for airports, automated weather stations offer current weather information from remote areas while needing little to no human labor. An AWS system typically includes multiple sensors as well as some form of power and mounting technique- varying depending on the system’s use.
It can be discouraging to find that complex weather stations and data loggers are often costly and complicated, requiring technicians to configure and program. Any high end personal weather station would cost you an arm and a leg, and any low-end weather station would break down with just a touch from an arm or a leg. At Dyacon, we bring you the perfect middle ground; quality and ease at a reasonable price.
The MS-100 series has a range of gauges to meet any specific needs. Starting with the MS-120 and ending with the MS-150, the sensors included measure wind speeds, air temperature and pressure, humidity levels, soil temperature and moisture, and rain levels.

All Dyacon MS-1XX weather stations use the same control module, so standard Dyacon communication features consisting of Modbus, USB configuration, and Weather Underground compatibility are included. An added benefit of our MS-100 weather station series is it’s autonomous data logging located inside the control module. In addition we have an assembly of components including cellphone capability. After being installed, the MS-1XXbegins to send weather reports and alarms strait to the users cell phone in the form of SMS. Alerts can be sent for temperatures outside a designated range, lightning, changing wind speeds, wind gusts, and other conditions. The user needs only to send a text command to receive updated information. The best part? No additional software, websites, or computer programs are required.
Dyacon weather stations have two options for power: battery-operation and solar power-operation. All stations can both be installed for added protection.
The Dyacon Tripod-1 is our suggestion for the mounting of all stations we sell. The adjustable leg extensions allow for accurate and stable positioning on sloped and uneven ground. Extended to its full height- the tripod will exceed 15 ft (4.8 m).
