ZENO® Scientific Weather Stations are simple to operate, and require only point and click software to download data, change sample rates, and much more. Additionally, our ZENO datalogger is capable of reading almost any sensor (analog, digital or serial "smart" sensors), processing the data, then checking and acting on alarms or triggering a relay, performing actions such as opening/closing valves, turning on/off pumps, etc.
The flexibility within the menu system of the Scientific Weather Station allows scientists and researchers to have almost infinite flexibility in what type, number, and accuracy of sensors they wish to use for their research or experiment.
Perhaps most importantly, our Scientific Weather Stations have a built-in Universal Serial Interface that allows you to "teach" ZENO how to communicate, control, parse data, and power ANY serial sensor. Serial sensors those with their own microprocessor have become predominant because of their accuracy and reliability.
Coastal Scientific Weather Stations can be fixed or portable and be powered by AC, battery, or solar. Scientific Weather Stations can also be ordered with extra openings in the enclosure to add, delete, or change sensor types or numbers.
Coastal's Scientific Weather Stations come equipped with the flexibility and power of Coastal's ZENO datalogger. Its embedded firmware, ZENOSOFT®, allows scientists to modify data processing, sensors, and means of communication, by configuring menus rather than learning to write code.
Coastal's Scientific Weather Stations also perform many types and numbers of self-tests on sensors, interfaces, serial sensor functioning and the internal working of ZENO itself.
Almost any type of telemetry can be used including direct cable, wireless, short haul modem, satellite, and GSM/GPRS. The weather station or groups of weather stations can communicate and be reprogrammed remotely via any of the telemetry types.
The C-5 SAM™ Ice Camp weather station is our most economical integrated system.
The C-5 SAM maintains the ruggedness and ease of use found in all Coastal Environmental Systems weather stations. It includes a sensor head that digitizes the data right at the sensor, resulting in a signal that is impervious to electronic static and radio noise. A single cable leads from the sensor head to the display electronics*, where a built-in 4 x 20 character LCD continually displays all the data.
For data storage and graphing with our INTERCEPT® software, a cable (up to 1000 feet in length) can be connected from the display directly to a PC or Macintosh computer. The C-5 SAM weather station is used in both portable and permanent installations.
*(The display must be kept inside it is not protected against the elements.)
