Something new !! Here you can see my weather Station working !

This is a little but very interesting weather station! 

PCE-FWS 20 Weather Station with touch screen 
weather station with 5 sensors (wind direction, wind speed, temperature, relative humidity, rainfall) / Alarm function / USB port / Analysis software
This weather station is a multifunction tool that will satisfy his expectations. Both in the private and in the professional, this will convince the weather station. This weather station allows it to accurately detect the wind direction, wind speed, temperature, relative humidity and rainfall. This is just a small part of the services that can offer this weather station. In addition to this fact, it has the ability to activate different alarm functions (air speed, atmospheric pressure, etc.). With the help of this weather station will decide, among other things, what kind of clothes to wear, or if it needs watering the garden or not, and more. Meteorological values are sent via radio signal to the base that can be located up to a maximum distance of 100 meters. This weather station is equipped with the latest technology in analyzing weather. The touch screen display allows you to view and easily manage the weather station values. The USB port with the included cable, enabling it to transmit the data of the weather station to your PC or laptop. These data should be accompanied by the date and time to be able to also be analyzed over a longer period of time. On the PC can store the meteorological values is limitless. The analysis software included in the shipment, allowing it to analyze and compare meteorological fluctuations by means of graphs and charts. We include in the shipment everything may need to operate the weather station. For more information on the PCE-FWS 20 weather station get in touch with us at the number +39 0583 975 114 or use our contact service . Our technicians and the engineers will advise on these weather stations and our other products: regulating and control systems , measuring instruments , laboratory instruments and scales of PCE Instruments .
