Transcript of "Capricorn 2000EX™ Weather Station"

  1. 1. Capricorn 2000EX™ Weather Station Madonna University Columbia Weather Systems, Inc. www.ColumbiaWeather.com
  2. 2. <ul><li>System Components </li></ul><ul><li>Sensors </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wind speed and direction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Temperature and humidity in Radiation Shield </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Barometric Pressure in Control Module </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solar Radiation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rain Gauge </li></ul></ul><ul><li>MicroServer </li></ul><ul><li>WeatherMaster Software </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Sensors: </li></ul><ul><li>Wind Speed and Direction </li></ul><ul><li>Durable aluminum/stainless steel sensor </li></ul><ul><li>360-degree wind direction resolution (2-degree) and high accuracy </li></ul><ul><li>Low threshold, displays as low as 1 mph </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Sensors: Temp and RH </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature - digital, semiconductor-type probe </li></ul><ul><li>Relative Humidity - capacitance sensor </li></ul><ul><li>Self-Aspirating Radiation Shield - protects sensors from incident radiation from either direct sunlight or proximate surfaces </li></ul>
  5. 5. Sensors: BP in Control Module Barometric Pressure - a silicon shear stress strain gauge, integrates on-chip, bipolar op amp circuitry and thin film resistor networks to provide a high level analog output signal and true temperature compensation Control Module - houses BP and acquires data from all sensors
  6. 6. Sensors: Solar Radiation Measures the shortwave radiation reaching the Earth's surface, measured in Watts m -2 .
  7. 7. Sensors: Rainfall Tipping bucket electric rain gauge - collector funnel with a knife edge diverts rainwater to a tipping bucket mechanism. For each tip, a magnet causes an electronic pulse that is recorded. Spent water drains out of the bottom of the housing
  8. 8. <ul><li>MicroServer </li></ul><ul><li>Data logger </li></ul><ul><li>Internet user interface </li></ul><ul><li>Network access for computers with WeatherMaster </li></ul><ul><li>Auto-upload to web page, CWOP and Weather Underground </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>WeatherMaster </li></ul><ul><li>Real-time data monitoring </li></ul><ul><li>Calculated parameters </li></ul><ul><li>Email/text reports </li></ul><ul><li>Graphing </li></ul><ul><li>Min/max </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Some Other Interesting Applications </li></ul><ul><li>David Schultz Airshows </li></ul><ul><li>Wildland Firefighting </li></ul><ul><li>Resource Center for </li></ul><ul><li>Homeland Security </li></ul><ul><li>(shown left at Kentucky Derby) </li></ul>
