How to install and maintain the weather station?
Now in summer, various extreme weather occurs frequently. For example, there have been many heavy rains in the south. These extreme weather conditions are closely related to our production and life, but in many cases, weather forecasts detect a large area and it is difficult to determine To a small area, it can be said that it is sunrise in the east and rain in the west. It is difficult to detect, but for now, monitoring of these meteorological conditions is very necessary.

The weather station can monitor air temperature, air humidity, wind direction, wind speed, air pressure, rainfall, light intensity, total radiation and other conventional meteorological elements, and can operate fully automatically and normally in unattended harsh environments all day long It is widely used in medium-scale encrypted networks, grid forecasting services, refined weather forecast data sources, key flash flood warning monitoring, regional meteorological environmental observation, industry service systems, campus weather systems, environmental weather monitoring, general aviation airports and other places.

In order to ensure the accuracy of the weather station monitoring data, not only the installation of the weather station must be paid attention to, but also the maintenance and repair after use. So what should be paid attention to when installing a weather station?

Installation specifications:

1. Prepare a list of equipment. Depending on the selection, the number of equipment is different. The actual situation on site shall prevail. Before installation, check whether the packaging is intact and whether the sensor is complete.

2. The surrounding environment requires on-site inspections in advance. According to the site conditions, priority should be given to the access location of the network and city power when selecting a location. Note: There can be no high-voltage lines above the weather station.

3. The installation of the collection terminal

When installing the wind direction, attention should be paid to the orientation problem

The effect of the installation is as follows:

Installation of weather monitoring integrated machine, required accessories: 2 hoop hoops, 8 screws

Waterproof box installation, required accessories: 1 power distribution box, 2 hoop hoops, Screws 8

Negative oxygen ion installation, required accessories: 1 electric control box, 2 screws, 2 nuts, one negative oxygen ion (only one foot can be fixed) and two One screw fixes the left supporting leg of the negative oxygen ion, and inserts the 4P terminal in the box into the negative oxygen ion terminal socket.

Wiring and powering on, after all the parts are installed, the effect is as shown in the figure below:

Wiring: Fix the wires of the 3 sensors along the support poles in turn, and then It is compatible with the one-to-three wire-pair plug provided by our company. If multiple 485 sensors are used in the field, our company will equip multiple one-to-three plug-in wires, which can be plugged down one by one. There is no distinction between 3 wires. . Pull out the GPRS antenna from the perforation at the bottom of the LED and attach it to the outside of the LED box or outside of the waterproof box to prevent shielding the network signal transmission. Refer to the following diagram for specific wiring and outlet methods:

Weather station maintenance:

The following are mainly for different sensors, and there are different maintenance methods:

1. Temperature and humidity sensor: mainly In view of the dust and dirt on the sensor head protective cover, the filter paper and mesh cover must be replaced in time, otherwise it will cause poor ventilation of the appliance, poor ventilation, and data distortion. Regularly check whether the sensor height is correct, and clean the shutter, Cover the sensor and replace the sensor filter paper

2. Air pressure sensor: The maintenance of the air pressure sensor is mainly to check the air pressure vent regularly to ensure that the inside of the instrument is free from pollution and debris, and clean it up in time to ensure Smooth air.

3. Rain sensor: regularly remove lime soil, sand, turf, insects, etc. So as not to block the pipes and filters. If there is dust on the inner wall of the bucket, it can be washed with water.

4. Wind speed sensor: The wind speed sensor is a bearing transmission sensor. After working for a long time, the starting wind speed may increase due to dust and bearing wear, and the measurement error may be too large. Coastal areas should be cleaned and maintained every 2 years.
