This package of sensors specifically focuses on wind and rain. The kit includes an anemometer to measure wind speed, a wind vane to measure wind direction, and a tipping rain gauge to measure the amount of rain that has fallen. Since these types of sensors need to be mounted above ground to be accurate, this kit includes a metal mast and mounting points for each sensor.

Description

Have you ever wanted to build your own weather station? This can be a very rewarding (and useful) project. Weather stations require a variety of different sensors to accurately monitor the different environmental conditions that we consider weather.

This package of sensors specifically focuses on wind and rain. The kit includes an anemometer to measure wind speed, a wind vane to measure wind direction, and a tipping rain gauge to measure the amount of rain that has fallen. Since these types of sensors need to be mounted above ground to be accurate, this kit includes a metal mast and mounting points for each sensor.

All three sensors do not contain any active electronics. To get any useful information from these sensors a microcontroller with available digital and analog pins will be required! The tipping rain gauge and the anemometer both use a simple reed switch while the wind direction sensor uses a resistor array to output a specific voltage for each of the 16 measurable directions.

Each sensor is supplied with RJ11 terminated cables. These can be plugged into a SparkFun weather:bit for BBC micr:bit, our Raspberry Pi Weather Board for the Raspberry Pi, or RJ11 Breakout Boards for just about anything else. Combine with other weather sensors to build your very own weather station.
