MaxiMet is an advanced compact weather station, designed and manufactured by Gill Instruments using proven technology to measure meteorological and environmental parameters to international standards. MaxiMet incorporates all the measurement parameters that meet the requirements of users in demanding applications where cost, quality and performance are essential. With features such as wind, precipitation, solar radiation, temperature, humidity, pressure, low power ‘Eco Mode’, GPS, compass and many more, MaxiMet is unique in its ability to provide the widest number of measurements and output protocol options which makes it easy to install, easy to use and is maintenance free.
MaxiMet GMX 600
Temperature, humidity, pressure. A combined instrument mounted inside three double louvered, naturally aspirated radiation shields with no moving parts. The results are high performance across each measurement over long periods of time.
Wind. Wind speed and direction measurements are provided via an ultrasonic sensor and the addition of an electronic compass provides apparent wind measurements. Average speed and direction together with WMO averages and gust data is also provided. Add GPS (optional) to provide true wind and other features.
Precipitation. An integrated optical rain gauge that automatically senses water hitting its outside surface and provides measurements based on the size and number of drops. Algorithms interpret this data and simulate the output of a tipping bucket rain gauge in a serial format. The optical rain gauge has no moving parts associated with tipping bucket gauges.
