The new Vela 420™ weather station provides 4-20 mA signal communication interface, combining the affordability and reliability of mechanical wind sensors with the ease of use of an all-in-one sensor module. Weather station data can be monitored with PLC plant software such as Wonderware®.
The Vela 420 measures wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure. Tipping bucket rain gauge is optional.
“Columbia Weather Systems is pleased to offer a 4-20 mA weather station at this new price point as we’ve been getting a lot of interest in a PLC system with mechanical wind sensors,” according to CWS president, Nader Khoury.

CWS has added a GSM SMS interface to the Weather MicroServer. Weather station users can now text “weather” to their GSM-equipped weather station and receive a text message weather report. This feature was developed in collaboration with the United Nations. One of their applications is for incoming pilots.
The new feature utilizes a Sierra Wireless AirLink GX400 modem. The Weather MicroServer can be used with any CWS weather station.
“We are pleased to be able to respond to advancing technologies and customer requirements with this new feature,” says CWS president Nader Khoury.
