WS-GP1 Weather Station for wind speed and direction, relative humidity, air temperature, rain and solar radiation

Quick Start Guide Version 1.0 Delta-T


The WS-GP1 Weather Station measures wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation and rainfall.

Apart from the wind vane tail, the sensors are already attached to the cross-arm and connected to a GP1 Logger with a weather station program installed.

This guide explains how to choose a site, install the mast, mount and align the cross arm, add the wind-vane tail and align it to North. Then, using a PC or Windows Mobile Device we show how to change the weather station program, check the sensor readings, then acquire and display readings.
