AIRMAR 200WX-IPX7 WeatherStation

Reliable monitoring systems like buoys, USVs, AUVs enable operational decision-making based on real-time site-specific data rather than intuition. The highly changeable conditions at sea make offshore operations particularly challenging. The 200WX-IPX7 meets this growing demand for real-time site-specific weather information collected offshore. Airmar has worked with many autonomous vehicle and buoy OEMs, to develop the WeatherStation Model 200WX-IPX7 to meet the operational challenges of this extreme harsh environment.

IPX7 Rated instrument for offshore marine monitoring platforms, buoys, USVs and AUVs

The low power requirements of the WeatherStation make it well suited for portable battery and solar powered applications and the IPX7 configuration is designed for this harsh and demanding environment.
