Intellisense Systems has introduced the MWS-C600, what company officials call a “true all-in-one weather sensor.”
Part of the Micro Weather Sensors (MWC) Commercial Series, the C600 transmits environmental measurements over cellular LTE-M communications to support cloud-based data logging and instant access to 28 meteorological conditions and parameters. The integrated ceilometer enables hyper-local weather monitoring for aviation applications, such as heliports and small, remote, or temporary airfields that do not have the power, budget, or space for an AWOS system.
The included ceilometer measures cloud height to 10,000′. Data can be collected from the sensor in 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 minutes intervals.
“The MWS–C600 is our best commercial weather sensor yet,” said Frank Willis, oresident and CEO of Intellisense Systems. “It features the world’s smallest LIDAR ceilometer and still is accurate within 1% up to 10,000′. Functionally, this has the same capabilities that have supported the Department of Defense at airfields and landing sites around the globe since 2016.”
The C600 does not need wires or external devices, enabling it to be set up and start transmitting in less than 60 seconds, according to company officials.
The data it collects includes temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, angular tilt, dust accumulation, lightning distance, compass reading, precipitation amount, present weather, GPS location, and cloud height.
