Weather Meter Kit

Description Includes Documents Whether you're an agriculturalist, a professional meteorologist or a weather hobbyist, building your own weather station can be a really rewarding project. When you're measuring weather, however, you need some pretty specialized sensors. This kit represents the three core components of weather measurement: wind speed, wind direction and rainfall. None of the sensors in this kit contain active electronics, instead they use sealed magnetic reed switches and…

SparkFun UV Sensor Breakout - ML8511

SparkFun UV Sensor Breakout - ML8511

Description Documents The ML8511 breakout is an easy to use ultraviolet light sensor. The MP8511 Sensor works by outputing an analog signal in relation to the amount of UV light that's detected. This breakout can be very handy in creating devices that warn the user of sunburn or detect the UV index as it relates to weather conditions. This sensor detects 280-390nm light most effectively. This is categorized as part of the UVB (burning rays) spectrum and most of the UVA (tanning rays)…

Large 6V 3.5W Solar panel

These panels come to us from Voltaic Systems, makers of fine solar-powered bags and packs. These are waterproof, scratch resistant, and UV resistant. They use a high efficiency monocrystalline cell. They output 6V at 530 mA via 3.5mm x 1.1mm DC jack connector - a nice upgrade to the 2W panels we have been carrying. The substrate is an aluminum / plastic composite, specifically designed to be strong and lightweight. They can easily stand up to typical outdoor use including being dropped and…
