MaxiMet with Rain Gauge & Inclinometer models debut at InterSolar 2016

Gill Instruments will launch two new MaxiMet variants on stand B2-159 at InterSolar from 22nd- 24th June 2016.

The new models have introduced new features to Gill’s solar product portfolio. As well as existing features such as solar radiation sensors which measure energy from the sun, the new models offer more options for measuring precipitation.

Each of the new MaxiMet all-in-one weather stations - the GMX 531 and GMX 551, includes instruments to measure temperature, humidity, pressure, wind speed/direction and solar radiation. The GMX 531 also includes an aerodynamic tipping bucket rain gauge supplied with a 20m cable, allowing it to be positioned in accordance with WMO guidelines. The rain gauge measures to typical 0.2mm resolution and is capable of recording precipitous events up to 1000mm per hour at ±2% accuracy. The GMX 551 includes an integrated connector to which any 0.2mm rain gauge can be linked.

“The new MaxiMet models have many features including the integrated Hukseflux LP02 solar radiation sensor which is widely used for PV performance monitoring and complies with WMO Guidelines and ISO 9060 standards. This kind of quality within MaxiMet range the helps our solar customers to monitor efficiency and improve performance and the integrated Modbus output makes installation simple.” says Paul Rogers, Head of Sales at Gill Instruments.

The new MaxiMet models will be on stand B2-159 at InterSolar from the 22nd- 24th June in Munich, Germany.
