Weather Station Aviation Showcase

Weather Station MS-150 features

Situación

¿Usted utiliza un aeropuerto pequeño, una pista de aterrizaje privada o una pista municipal? Si es así, hay altas posibilidades de que, en el mejor de los casos, los indicadores de las condiciones meteorológicas en el lugar sean mínimos, con suerte, tal vez hay una manga de viento. Mientras que esos indicadores básicos funcionan bien si usted está en tierra, simplemente son inadecuados si usted está volando. Los cambios en el clima después de un día de viaje pueden ser significativamente diferentes respecto a lo que fueron al momento del despegue. Su seguridad depende de conocer esas condiciones específicas.
Por supuesto, los aeropuertos pequeños (o pistas similares) típicamente no tienen presupuestos masivos para comprar instrumentos meteorológicos caros y complejos de usar. Aunque los instrumentos meteorológicos de alta gama tienen su lugar, los costos pueden ser prohibitivos. Por otro lado, los instrumentos meteorológicos disponibles en tiendas departamentales pueden ser adecuados para las necesidades de un jardinero, pero pueden proporcionar información inadecuada en escalas mayores (por ejemplo, en un pequeño aeropuerto).
Sería mucho más conveniente y seguro tener las condiciones climatológicas específicas del lugar en la palma de su mano, sin tener que acceder a una computadora personal, cargar una página web o preocuparse acerca de la compatibilidad de la app cada vez que su teléfono se actualiza.
Dyacon te ofrece eso.

Estación meteorológica preconfigurada para aviación

Las estaciones meteorológicas de Dyacon están hechas en los Estados Unidos de América y están preconfiguradas para las aplicaciones de aviación. La MS‑130 fue creada específicamente para satisfacer las necesidades de la industria de la aviación.

Weather Station Industrial Showcase

Weather Station MS-150 features

Situación

Los instrumentos de medición del clima local en tiempo real pueden ser requeridos en ciertas aplicaciones industriales, por ejemplo: control de procesos, seguridad del trabajador, cantidad de viento y volumen de precipitación. La climatización (HVAC) en instalaciones grandes también puede requerir instrumentos “meteorológicos” cuando un termostato de pared simplemente no es suficiente.

Usted se puede preguntar cómo obtener los datos de medición que usted necesita para su aplicación industrial. Dependiendo de sus circunstancias, usted puede tener preguntas como:

¿Qué sensores puedo conectar al controlador lógico programable (PLC)?

¿Necesito un sensor de temperatura del aíre lejos del (por ejemplo 2,000 pies o 600 m) controlador?

¿Debo monitorear las condiciones en el estanque de evaporación o en las instalaciones de tratamiento de desechos?

¿Quiero instrumentos con mejor longevidad y rendimiento que los que ofrece un sistema que se vende en una tienda departamental?

Estación meteorológica para usos industriales lista para usar

Las estaciones meteorológicas de Dyacon son una excelente opción para aplicaciones industriales. Los sensores de Dyacon y la estación meteorológica han sido construidos en los Estados Unidos y utilizan Modbus RS‑485; esto le permite instalar más de 1,000 pies (300 metros) de cable a la estación meteorológica.

MS-140

  • Energía Solar

Situación

El clima es muchas cosas: es algo local, lo que significa que no es algo ajeno a usted que está sucediendo en el aeropuerto más cercano. El clima también es fascinante, siempre está cambiando y nos afecta a todos. Por lo tanto, para muchos negocios e industrias es importante tener a la mano información meteorológica confiable en su centro de operaciones.

Instalar un sensor a un costado del edificio de su empresa puede ser rápido y fácil, pero no se pueden obtener lectura legítimas de viento y temperatura de esta manera. De forma similar, las estaciones meteorológicas que se venden en las tiendas departamentales pueden ser convenientes y baratas, pero usted obtiene lo poco que paga y por otro lado, los registradores de datos científicos de alta gama son exactos, sin embargo pueden ser extremadamente sofisticados, complejos y costosos.

Entonces la pregunta es si existe un equipo meteorológico de buena calidad que no requiera escritura en código de computadora o que usted sea ingeniero. ¿La respuesta? ¡Claro que sí!

Estación meteorológica privada preconfigurada

Las estaciones meteorológicas de Dyacon son preconfiguradas de forma automática para que se ajusten a sus necesidades: son de alta de calidad, de un ensamblaje sólido (hecho en los Estados Unidos) y son claramente superiores a las alternativas de las tiendas departamentales.

The following is a selection of Dyacon weather stations operating in different conditions and filling different roles. If you have installed a Dyacon weather station, please send us a picture, we’d love to add it to our gallery.

STS Helicopter Services Weather Station

STS VIP Helicopter Services

STS is a charter helicopter company in Texas, US and was one of the early users.

As can be seen from the Weather Underground page, the station operates in a high humidity environment.

With access to a machine shop, STS fabricated a beautiful and unique weather station tower near their landing pad. All of the cables are neatly routed through the welded pipe; making a very tidy installation.

Dyacon Station at Beaver Dam Wash Reserve

Beaver Dam Wash National Conservation Area

Beaver Dam Wash National Conservation Area is a high mountain desert site located in the extreme south-west corner of Utah. The Dyacon station is on a USDA-ARS research plot.

The site sees a broad range of temperature conditions, blowing sand, and high winds. Due to the loose sand and rock, rather than just stake the tripod, the users installed the station using concrete post bases and J-bolts.

Cherry Peak Weather Station Mounted

Cherry Peak Ski Resort

The Cherry Peak weather station is mounted on a light pole about mid-slope. The station is fully autonomous and functional on solar power, even though it is completely shaded during the winter.

The weather station provides wind conditions for chair lift operation and wet-bulb temperature for snow-making. It can be accessed by resort staff using a simple text message.

Weather Underground Weather Station

Weather Underground

The Dyacon MS-150 weather station is mounted on the roof of the Weather Underground headquarters building in downtown San Francisco. It was easy to setup since no power or data connections were required.

TW Daniels Forest

At the top of the beautiful Cache National Forest above Logan, UT is a little plot reserved for forest and hydrology research. The Dyacon tripod is staked to the ground and configured with double-length legs to keep the controller out of the snow and to stress of the tripod construction. The location sees continuous winds, which blow from nearly the same direction as well as frequent gusts up to 60 mph.

The consistent wind direction could cause abnormal potentiometer wear on most wind direction sensors, but Dyacon WSD-1 uses a non-contact angular sensor.

Mammoth Water District

In order to monitor hydrological conditions, a water district in California installed a Dyacon weather station with heated rain gauge at a mountain well site.

The heater in the rain gauge turns on only when needed.

Grand Canyon Weather Station

Sundance Helicopters in Grand Canyon

Sundance Helicopters flies tourists from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon for picnics next to the Colorado river. Due to the distance from the Las Vegas base, weather conditions can be dramatically different. Rather than run exploration flights to check conditions, the Dyacon station provides real-time weather data that saves the company money and reduces risk.

The user staked the weather station in sandy and rocky soil near the landing zone. Due to the location in the bottom the canyon, the cell phone signal strength is very low, but transmits Weather Underground data, text messages, and receives over-the-air firmware updates.

Community Airport

Small airports are often only served by a wind sock, which are hard to see when you’re flying back into town. Dyacon weather stations can provide advisory information through text message and Weather Underground.

The Preston, ID airport station is installed in sandy soil using stakes to secure the tripod. The weather station uses a rain gauge, pyranometer, and soil temperature sensor which serve as a reference for the rural agricultural area. The station uploads to WeatherUnderground and MesoWest.

Oysterville, Washington

Working in conjunction with Oregon State University coastal geomorphologist Nick Cohn, Dyacon installed an MS-140 weather station directly on the beach in Long Beach, Washington. The station was deployed for nine months as part of the Aeolian Sediment Transport and Coastal Dune Evolution project measuring sediment transport on the ocean floor, beach, and dunes.

This installation was unique for Dyacon and the first experience in a coastal environment. Due to permit restrictions, the tripod could not be permanently anchored so we used Dyacon Sand and Snow Plates. These were buried about 6 inches in the sand and two stakes used on each foot. The tripod held firm throughout the winter and was removed at the conclusion of the study.

Weather Station MS-150 features

Situation

Real‑time, local weather instruments may be required in certain industrial applications, for example: process control, worker safety, incident response, environmental temperature, wind loads, and precipitation volume. HVAC in large facilities may also require “weather” instruments when a wall thermostat just won’t cut it.

You might wonder how to get the measurement data you need for your industrial application. Depending on your circumstances, you might have questions, such as:

What sensors can I connect to a programmable logic controller (PLC)?

Do I need an air temperature sensor far away (e.g., 2,000 ft, or 600 m) from the controller?

Do I need to monitor conditions at the evaporation pond or waste treatment facility?

Do I want instruments with better longevity and performance than a department store system?

Ready-made Weather Station for Industrial Uses

Dyacon weather stations are an excellent choice for industrial applications. Made in the USA, Dyacon sensors and weather stations utilize Modbus RS‑485; this lets you run more than 1,000 feet (300 m) of cable to the weather station.

MS-140

  • Solar Power
  • Data Logging
  • Modbus Cable Connection
  • Embedded Cell Phone
  • Email or FTP Data Logs
  • WeatherUnderground-Ready
  • Wind Speed and Direction
  • Real-time Gust Detection
  • Air Temperature
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Relative Humidity
  • Soil Temperature
  • Soil Moisture

(If you don’t need a full weather station, a Dyacon wind sensor and air sensor are highly useful for basic weather measurements. These sensors can also be powered by 5 VDC to 24 VDC, allowing for direct connection to PLC power supplies.)

When combined with a Dyacon tripod, Dyacon weather stations are also portable, which allows you to relocate them easily for best performance or changes in the needs of your facility.

Weather Station Aviation Showcase

Weather Station MS-150 features

Situation

Do you use a small airport, private landing strip, or small municipal runway? If so, chances are high that the indicators of on-site weather conditions are minimal at best – maybe a windsock, if you’re lucky. While such basic indicators are okay if you’re on the ground, they are simply inadequate if you’re flying in. Weather changes, and after a flying day trip, conditions on the landing site can be significantly different than they were at takeoff. Your safety depends on knowing those specific conditions.

Of course, small airports (and similar) don’t typically have massive budgets for expensive, complicated weather instruments. Although high-end weather instruments have their place, the costs can be prohibitive. On the other hand, department store weather instruments might suit the needs of a gardener but can be unreliable on a larger scope (e.g., small airport).

It would be much more convenient and safe to have current, site-specific weather conditions in the palm of your hand, without having to access a PC, load a web page, or worry about app compatibility each time your phone updates.

Dyacon gives you that.

Pre-Configured Weather Station for Aviation

Dyacon weather stations are made in the USA and are preconfigured for aviation applications. The MS‑130 was created specifically to meet the needs of the aviation industry.

Features include:

  • Wind speed and direction
  • SMS (text message) weather reports
  • USB configuration
  • Air temperature
  • Relative humidity
  • Barometric pressure
  • Modbus slave
  • Low-power operation
  • Data logger

With these stations, weather reports are provided in an easy-to-use METAR format through a simple SMS text message interface. Once the weather station is installed, you can simply send a text message request from your cell phone and receive an immediate response directly from the weather station. Each METAR report request will send an immediate message followed by updates every 15 minutes for the next two hours. Dyacon weather stations can also automatically upload to Weather Underground, which provides a graphical web interface with historical data.

The integrated cell phone and solar power capabilities allow for remote installations and easy configuration. The system requires no apps, no websites, and no computer voices. No special data logger programming is required. If you can set up your home stereo, you can install a Dyacon weather station.

Basic measurements include wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. Lightning detection is also available for safety alerts.

When combined with a Dyacon tripod, Dyacon weather stations are also portable, which allows you to relocate them for seasonal or temporary landing strips.

Weather Station MS-150 features

Situation

Weather is many things. It is local, meaning where you are – not what’s happening at the nearest airport. Weather is also fascinating. It’s ever-changing, and it affects everyone. It’s important for many businesses and industries to have on-site, reliable weather data.

While nailing a sensor to the side of your company building might be a fast and easy way to go, legitimate wind and temperature measurements cannot be collected this way. Similarly, department store weather stations might be convenient and cheap, but you get what you pay for. On the other hand, high-end scientific data loggers are accurate, but they can be overwhelmingly sophisticated, complex, and costly.

The question, then, is if good quality weather equipment exists that does not require the writing of computer code or a complex engineering background. The answer? Absolutely.

Pre-Configured Private Weather Station

Dyacon weather stations are preconfigured automatic weather stations that fit the bill: they are high quality, of solid construction (made in the USA), and a clear cut above the department store options while still being easy to use.

Met Station MS‑150
Solar powered with embedded cell phone.

  • Wind sensor
  • Temperature, air pressure, humidity sensor
  • Solar sensor
  • Rain gauge
  • Data logging
  • Weather Underground connectivity

Dyacon instruments are high-end sensing elements, but they are specifically designed to minimize cost while providing an easy-to-use system. Upon receiving your weather station shipment, you need merely to mount the components and turn on the power to start receiving weather reports through text messages sent to your phone.

The Dyacon Private Weather Station (PWS) is based on a Dyacon solar-powered met station and includes a wind sensor and an air temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure sensor. Rain gauge and data logging are added to round out the instruments. A solar sensor, lightning detection, and temperature probe are optional.

Features such as data logging, Weather Underground connectivity, and custom sensors can all be configured using the LCD menu or through the USB port. No programming languages, development environment, or additional software purchase is required for you to be able to utilize your weather station.

When mounted onto a Dyacon equipment tripod, your weather station can be relocated as necessary. The Dyacon tripod provides a stable base anywhere, out in the field or right next to your facility.

Dyacon Agricultural Weather Station

Weather Station MS-150 features

Agricultural Weather Station

Television and radio news reports and regional forecasts have their role and are important sources of general information for managing an agricultural operation. But these reports probably don’t represent the conditions at your specific site – what about your local weather conditions?

Having access to local (better yet, on-site) agricultural weather data is critical in order for you to effectively manage freeze protection, allocate irrigation resources, plant at optimal soil temperature, monitor wind conditions, and determine ideal harvesting humidity. It shouldn’t be too surprising that a local ag weather station is required for such data.

It can be discouraging to find that complex weather stations and data loggers are often costly and complicated, requiring technicians to configure and program. After all, your business isn’t in weather instrumentation. Still, your agricultural business could certainly benefit from high-quality, reliable weather instruments, especially those available at a reasonable price.

Pre-Configured Weather Station for Growers

Dyacon weather stations are made in the USA and are preconfigured to the precise needs of you, the grower. For example, Dyacon’s basic solar‑powered weather station with embedded cell phone can be located wherever it’s needed – specifically, on‑site at your agricultural operation.

After the weather station is installed (a straightforward process you can do yourself), you can simply request a weather report from your weather station using a text message, and a current weather report will be sent right back to your cell phone. No fancy apps, computer programs, or programming is required.

Want to know when to plant, when to water, and when to harvest? You’ll find out, using the data from your Dyacon weather station. Basic measurements include the following: wind meter for wind speed and wind direction, air temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. To this basic setup, Dyacon has added grower-specific instruments (e.g., rain gauge, soil temperature sensor, and soil moisture sensor). Lightning detection is also available for safety alerts.

When combined with a Dyacon tripod, Dyacon weather stations are also portable, which allows you to relocate them as necessary to adjust to your changing crop allocation.
