AIRMAR 200WX WeatherStation

The Model 200WX is Airmar’s solution for mobile land based weather monitoring applications. Feature rich, in a durable, rugged, small footprint that is IPX4 or IPX6 rated enabled the 200WX to be integrated onto TV news platforms and enabled several other mobile solution providers to complete their solutions.

Premier land based instrument

Able to calculate the theoretical wind speed and direction based upon the apparent wind (the wind you would feel on your hand if you held it out while moving), speed of the vehicle/vessel, and vehicle/vessel heading. Theoretical wind speed and direction is significant for numerous applications and are often mission-critical. The Model 200WX internal 10Hz GPS and three-axis electronic compass provide heading, position, speed over ground and course over ground functionality that is required for true wind data processing and mobile applications.

The Model 200WX 3D compass with dynamic stabilization provided by the 3-axis rate gyro also enhances the rate of turn data. The Model 200WX maintains dynamic compass performance when in hilly and mountainous terrain common in many military applications.
