Weather data plays a decisive role in modern BMS. This is because efficient control depends crucially on solar radiation, outdoor temperature, humidity or precipitation, for example. Our integrated weather stations
, such as the CLIMA SENSOR US
weather station, the WSC11
and WSC Advanced
weather stations, offer optimum solutions for recording these environmental parameters.
The weather stations not only allow you to record precise data such as wind speed, wind direction, precipitation, global radiation, position of the sun, brightness, temperature, humidity and air pressure, but also offer various interfaces to make this information available in your BMS systems. This means that the BMS has the necessary weather data to derive measures that enable, for example, energy optimization or alarm messages to janitors or building managers in the event of potentially dangerous weather events.Challenges of integrated weather stations : Integrated weather stations
have extensive measurement sensor technology integrated into one device. Typically, this means that the entire device has to be replaced in the event of a fault if it is not possible to replace individual sensor modules on site. This places the highest demands on the measurement technology in order to realize the precise recording of various parameters in just one compact sensor housing. The design of a sensor system that is compressed into a very small space and does not interfere with each other as much as possible is a demanding metrological challenge that requires many years of experience and corresponding expertise on the part of the manufacturer.Connection to various control systems:
The seamless integration of weather stations into intelligent building management systems requires a selection of interfaces to ensure connection to various control systems. This not only offers maximum flexibility, but also enables efficient communication and integration of weather data into control processes, from industrial networks to IoT applications.
