Observator Instruments

Observator Instruments launched MeteoLink at OI 2016. All-in-one meteorological stations for the measurement of wind, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and precipitation sound very convenient. However, in the professional meteorological markets, such as marine, harbours, airports etc, the use of these all-in one systems are nearly impossible.

On vessels, for example, the wind speed and direction should be measured as high as possible, free from obstacles which could cause a blockage or venturi effects. Temperature and humidity should be measured close to the bridge, away from exhausts and direct sun light and preferably executed with a field replaceable probe. Barometric pressure should be measured inside, a CAP recommendation, and in most cases using a dual baro sensor.

Additionally, other critical markets have their own unique requirements for sensor locations as well as sensor quality and accuracy.

Furthermore, many applications require meteorological stations with more sensors than available in all-in-one systems in order to obtain information on parameters such as visibility, cloud height and coverage and even hydrological parameters.

MeteoLink offered the opportunity to interconnect individual sensors with each other and combine sensor measurements and sensor information into one data stream with multiple NMEA messages.

Their stand featured a range of meteorological instruments such as MeteoLink, wind sensors, wind displays; and hydrological instruments such as buoys, turbidity probes, water quality sensors.

Observator Instruments develops and delivers sensors, services and turn-key systems for meteorological and hydrological monitoring. Deliveries can range from a single sensor to the installation of a complete system of meteorological or hydrological measurement stations including telemetry and data processing.

The sensors and systems are often used within marine, offshore, wind farms, water management, dredging, industrial, airports, harbours, research and a lot of other applications.

Their exhibits are particularly relevant to those attending the Aquaculture; and Positioning & Metrology conference streams. www.observator.com
