CAWS-600-S/SE Multi-Element Field Automatic Weather Station is the intelligent monitoring system with functions of fully automatic data collection, storage, processing and transmission. It is a filed intelligent meteorology station for multi-application with no person on duty; in addition, it actualizes automatic monitoring, storage, processing and transmission of various weather elements under extreme environment. The collection system adopts advanced collection core, which has strong expansibility and can actualize any combination observation of multi-elements observation items. The observation data has high stability and precision, and the equipment is featured as being of high reliability, high accuracy, easy for maintenance and back-up. It is composed of hardware and software. The former includes sensor, collector, communication system and power supply system. The latter includes collection and debugging software, center station software and data application terminal software.
