Gill MaxiMet compact weather stations expand with further precipitation options
Gill Instruments has expanded the MaxiMet range of compact weather stations by introducing two new variants with additional precipitation options. Developed to meet customer needs in areas subjected to heavier rainfalls, the new models capabilities can provide improved rainfall data to applications including PV parks, hydrological stations and coastal monitoring stations.
The latest models, GMX531 and GMX551 offer precipitation measurement via a separate connector for tipping bucket rain gauges in addition to the existing features such as solar radiation, temperature, humidity, pressure and wind measurement all combined into a single output available via multiple digital interface options.
The GMX 531 is supplied with an aerodynamic tipping bucket rain gauge and 20m cable, allowing it to be positioned in accordance with WMO guidelines. The aerodynamic rain gauge supplied with the GMX531 features a typical 0.2mm resolution and is capable of measuring precipitation up to 1000mm per hour at ±2% accuracy.
The GMX551 is fitted with the integrated connector, which users can link with any 0.2mm rain gauge.
“The new MaxiMet weather stations with expanded precipitation measurements have been developed in response to customer requests for high performance in areas where heavy rainfall is often experienced” says Richard McKay at Gill Instruments. “Since its launch, MaxiMet has proven incredibly popular with a wide variety of users and its popularity is partly due to the many configurations available and flexibility offered throughout the range.”
