Coastal Environmental Systems WEATHERPAK 2000 shipboard weather system
|Within Vocab||SeaVoX Device Catalogue|
|Definition||An automatic weather station which has been designed for shipboard applications. Used to measure wind speed, temperature, relative humidity, and barometric pressure. Winds are vector averaged and the barometer is read several times and averaged to remove wind, wave, and roll induced errors. When power is applied, if no terminal intervention occurs, the system will automatically initialize itself and begin sampling according to its predetermined schedule. The WEATHERPAK has a hardware clock accurate to about 5 seconds per day. The sensors include: a propeller and vane wind monitor with a wind speed detection range of 0 to 100 m/s with an accuracy of < 0.5 m/s and resolution of 0.1m/s, and 360 degrees wind direction measurement to an accuracy of 2 degrees and resolution of 1 degree; An ultrasonic wind monitor that can measure wind speeds between 0 and 60m/s with a resolution of 0.01 m/s, and wind directions from 0-360 degrees with an accuracy of 1 degree; A threaded air temperature and relative humidity sensor that can measure a temperature range of -10 °C to 60°C to an accuracy ±0.6°C and a reported resolution of 0.1 °C, humidity is accurate to +/- 3% and is reported to a resolution of 1%; A Hygroclip S3 air temperature and relative humidity sensor that measures a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, accuracy of +/-0.2°C, and resolution of 0.1°C, and humidity range of 0-100% accurate to +/-1% with a resolution of 0.02%; and a barometric pressure sensor with an accuracy of <5mb and reported resolution of 1 mb.|
