Mountain Weather Stations - Dyacon

MS-140 features - Mountain weather station

Situation

Whether up in the mountains for recreation purposes or on the job, knowing the weather and the dangers associated is high priority. Backpacking, paragliding, kayaking, ziplining, camping, and all other recreation rely heavily on the weather being just right. Television and radio reports are available, but how many times have you planned an outing only to find that the weatherman had been dead wrong? Not only do you need a report on the weather, you need an accurate and current report on the weather. How do you get this information, you ask? Good thing we have an answer.

A professional weather station in your very own backyard, outdoor facility, resort, or business can give you the information you and your clients require in order to make the most out of your time in the mountains. 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 and make up for its low-cost in maintenance fees. At Dyacon, we bring you the perfect middle ground; quality and ease at a reasonable price.

Dyacon’s Solution

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 MS-100 weather stations come with an assembly of components including cellphone capability. After being installed, the MS-1XX begins 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.

All Dyacon weather stations were designed to be easily and efficiently set up and maintained. 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. From box to fully configured takes less an hour for the basic wire twister- no technician is required.

(If you don’t need a full weather station, a Dyacon wind sensor and air sensorare 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.)
