Ambient WS-5000 Ultrasonic Professional Smart Weather Station

The Ambient WS-5000 Ultrasonic Professional Smart Weather Station is the most sophisticated home and light industrial weather station we have ever created. Our smart wind meter has no moving parts to wear out, and includes a revolutionary sonic anemometer that responds quicker to wind, and transmits faster than traditional wind cup designs.

The attractively thin desktop display is also wall mountable. The brilliant, dynamic LCD is easy to read, day or night, features light or dark-colored background, and automatically controls brightness settings based on time of day. Measured parameters combine with calculated data: ‘Feels Like’ Temperature (Wind Chill and Heat Index), Dew Point, Gust (the maximum wind speed sampled once per second in the 16-second update period), 10 Minute Wind Speed and Direction Average, Sunrise, Sunset, Moon Phase, Forecast, and more. The WS-5000 also displays minimum and maximum conditions with time and date stamp, historical archived data, which can be exported to SD Card (optional, not included) for advanced data analysis in Excel. The SD Card is also used for firmware updates.

The extra-large rain cup ensures better accuracy. Since the sensor is wireless, it can be placed close to the ground, and the removable lid makes for easy service and maintenance.

The Ultrasonic Sensor Array

The wireless sensor array features a pagoda Thermos hygrometer radiation shield with passive aspiration for the utmost accuracy, a bubble level for plumb installation, and a solar panel. It connects to the console via RF (915 MHz) up to 1000 feet line of sight in the open air (300 feet under most conditions). The wireless signal will not pass through solid metal, earth, or ground. The sensor array mounts to any pole between 1.25 and 2″ diameter with an adaptive mounting bracket and U-Bolt design that can be tightened to your mounting pole (not included).

The Indoor Thermos Hygrometer Barometer

The WH32B indoor sensor will monitor temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. One sensor is included with the WS-5000 weather station system.

Optional Sensors (sold separately)

The WS-5000 supports up to 8 additional thermos hygrometers, 2 air quality sensors (1 indoor and 1 outdoor), 4 leak detectors, 8 soil meters, and a lightning detector.
