Dyacon - Model MS-130 - Solar Powered Weather Station
From Weather Stations
Dyacon MS‑130™ is our most popular weather station configuration. It includes basic instruments, is solar powered, and has an embedded cell phone for fully autonomous operation. MS-130 is an ideal station for small airports, heliports, basic industrial users, and routine research applications.
MS‑130 includes a control module (data logger), wind sensor, temperature-pressure-humidity sensor, solar power module, embedded cell phone, and mounting hardware. Rain gauge, solar sensor, and soil moisture sensor may be added.
Weather Station MS-130 features
MS‑130 supports both wired and wireless connections. The embedded cell phone uploads to DyaconLive and Weather Underground®. The Modbus RTU port connects to computers and automation control systems. SMS text message weather reports are available for aviation, grower, industrial safety, and research users. The user simply sends a text message and the weather station responds with the requested report.
MS‑130 is easy to configure and install. It can be located for optimal measurements, whether in the backyard, at a summer cabin, around evaporation ponds, or on a remote airplane landing strip. No programming or specialized skills required.
Add Dyacon Tripod-1 for permanent or portable installations.

MS‑130TM is shipped with a control module, wind sensor (WSD‑1), air sensor (TPH‑1), solar module, mounting brackets, air sensor pipe, and wires. The tripod and aspiration kit are optional add-ons and are purchased separately.
Weather Station MS‑130 uses Dyacon modules to build a solution that is unique, expandable, and flexible.
Brackets and hardware are included for mounting the components onto 3/4” to 2” pipe or a flat surface. (Tripod is sold separately.)
Separate wind and air sensors allow for instruments to be positioned at conventional elevations or as required by the application.
The included Dyacon control module utilizes a cellular phone module for command and control as well as for user reports.
A 24‑bit ADC digital pressure sensor has the capability of delivering 10 cm (+/- 1.5 mbar) resolution. Barometric pressure is contained in the TPH‑1 sensor.
The control module is equipped with both USB device and Modbus slave ports for connecting to data-hosting equipment, such as PCs or programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
A 10 W solar module powers the MS‑130 and charges an internal battery. The system is designed to go five days of normal operation without solar input. An adaptive power algorithm extends critical operation for several more days.
Weather Station MS‑130 is designed to be installed and maintained by the user. Sensors shipped with the unit are preconfigured and tested prior to shipment. Full instructions are provided so that setup can be done by the user without technical support.
MS‑130 includes a 12 V output for the Smart-Fan aspirated air sensor, which improves the temperature accuracy in sunny conditions.
