Standard Dyacon MS-100™ weather stations use a 10 W solar panel and 7 Ah batter. This is suitable for most locations below latitude 45°. For northern latitudes and areas with more snow or cloud cover, a 20 W panel provides additional power margin.

KIT-20WUP™ is available as a factory upgrade option during initial system configuration (-001 variant). It can also be purchased as a separate power kit for weather stations already in the field (-002 variant).

As a factory upgrade (-001), a 9 Ah battery and 20 W panel are used during weather station configuration instead of the typical 10 W panel and 7 Ah battery.

The field upgrade kit (-002) ships with all of the components required to install the upgrade in a Dyacon weather station, including the solar panel, brackets, battery, fused cable, and hardware.


Dyacon solar panel bracket installs to a pole or walls.

The angle of the solar panel can be adjusted without any tools. Positions include 30° down angle, 45°, 60°, and 90°. (The 90° position requires a second pin. Contact Dyacon if this position is needed.)


Brackets are composed of 5052 aluminum. Band clamps are stainless steel. Clevis and cotter pins are zinc-plated steel.
