Students, teachers and neighbors can now check both the weather conditions and the air quality in real time through the WeatherLink online platform.
The station is equipped with cup anemometer, wind vane, thermo-hygrometer, tipping spoon rain gauge and barometer. It also has an AirLink air quality sensor for measuring the concentration of PM1, PM2.5 and PM10 particulate matter, which is especially important for students with asthma, allergies or lung and heart conditions. The meteorological sensor suite is powered by solar energy for fully autonomous operation.
The weather and air quality data is sent to the cloud through the school’s Wi-Fi network for remote monitoring and management from a computer, tablet and smartphone. The WeatherLink online platform allows to monitor the data in real time, create custom plots by selecting the desired variables and time range, export the database to spreadsheet format, set alerts for adverse conditions and even share the data with other online platforms such as Weathercloud.
