MODEL 5881/A2 - ALERT2 Packaged Weather Station

General Description

The HydroLynx 5381/A2 Packaged Weather Station combines the effectiveness of the ALERT2 Self-Reporting Weather Station with the utility of the 50388 transmitter. In addition to its multiple communication pathways (see Model 5354 General Description), the 50388 features data analysis which allows data to be processed on site prior to transmission.

Processing data allows the 50388 to transmit averages, maximums, minimums and other computed values; this eliminates the transmission of large amounts of data required for these calculations at the base station. Also, in combination with other communication pathways not limited by the ALERT protocol, data in engineering units with base sets and other meta data are transmitted.

The standard 5881 consists of wind, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and precipitation sensors; a 50388-81 Data Transmitter; a solar panel; interconnection cables and omni antenna. A USB programming port and SDI-12 sensor input port are standard. The 50388 can be expanded to a total of 16 analog inputs, four low speed counters (rain sensor inputs), four high speed counters (AC or DC wind inputs), sixteen digital status inputs and eight digital outputs.
