Wind Velocity and Direction Selection of Instruments Wind vane and Cup Anemometer Cheaper option Moving Parts, Needs frequent maintenance Site in Anand, Gujarat

Temperature and Humidity Sensor Resistance based Temperature Selection of Instruments Sensor Capacitive Humidity Sensor Often Temperature and Humidity sensors come as single hardware Atmospheric Pressure based on MEMS

Indoor unit Selection of Instruments Sensor Site in Sampli, Gujarat Site in Bhubaneswar, Odisha Site in Harsar, Himachal Pradesh General Features and Most Important part of AWS

Functions Data Logger Central Supplies Power to Sensors, Reads and record data Pass on data to telemetry unit for transmission Highly configurable based on requirements Some Models available with inbuilt GSM transmitter Some Data loggers are integral part of Sensor Data Logger

Data logger - Examples Komoline Data logger with inbuilt GSM Transmitter, Data Logger Data logger - Examples Jinyang Data logger showing input, output and communication ports, Kapla, Himachal Pradesh Data Logger Data logger - Examples Sutron Data Logger

with in built Satellite Transmitter Sutron Data Logger with inbuilt Satellite Transmitter, Display and Keypad Integration of AWS with other Sensors Integration Data Logger is the major deciding factor for feasibility of integration

With Specifications of Data Logger mentioned above, it is possible to integrate any type of station and large number of sensors Future Integration needs should be considered for deciding Data logger Specifications If no need for integration Low end Data logger If chance of adding more sensors in future High end Data logger (Expansive option) Integration Examples Installed at Nangal Dam (Punjab) along with Integration
