Products for Airport Weather Station
Situation: Do you use a small airport, private landing strip, or small municipal runway? If you’re lucky, you might have a windsock. That’s okay if you’re on site, but inadequate if your flying in.
High-end weather instruments have their place, but the cost can be prohibitive. Department store instruments are okay for the garden, but may not be reliable.
When returning after a day trip, are you ever concerned that conditions at the landing site are still suitable?
It would be nice to have the current 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 weather stations are made in the USA and are pre-configured for aviation applications.
Weather reports are provided in an easy-to-use METAR format through a simple SMS text message interface. Send a text message request from your cell phone and get an immediate response, directly from the weather station, no apps, no websites, no computer voices. Each METAR report request will send an immediate message and updates every 15 minutes for the next two hours. Dyacon weather stations can also automatically upload to WeatherUnderground, providing a graphical web interface with historical data.
The integrated cell phone and solar power capability allow for remote installations and easy configuration, no special data logger programming 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. Allowing you to relocate them for seasonal or temporary landing strips.
