Meteorological Sensors

Coastal has unrivaled knowledge, experience and skill with all types of meteorological sensors and their methods of telemetry. To allow you the option of using analog, digital, or "smart" serial sensors, we created the world's only Universal Serial Interface (USI). This interface makes it possible to use virtually any meteorological sensor, as well as add or upgrade sensors in the future.

This is a list of the most frequently used meteorological sensors. If you would like to inquire about an item not listed below, please use our Request Form.
