Advice needed re Automatic Weather recording

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is the wrong forum but here goes......

I need to purchase a moderate priced piece of equipment that will automatically measure daily rainfall and daily max and min temps.

We have been recording these features on a daily basis since the early 1970's but due to the imminent closure of the site (power station) there will no longer be anybody available to carry out these daily tasks but there will be an office with PC's etc still manned Mon to Fri.

Can anybody please help with any info.

Thanks in advance

Ok, so lets take this a piece at a time. You say automatically, so that suggests unattended operation? You also say the data has been recorded, and you say on a working day basis. 

So, are you looking for something that will capture the information you require, i.e. measure daily rainfall and daily max and min temps. What about wind and humidity? 

Do you have something in mind that is capturing information within a self contained unit that a human interrogates and then provides the data, OR are you looking for something that posts out to a website for anybody to peruse?

Your suggestion is that you have PC's but can they be adapted to capture/load & store the data you are seeking, if so there are quite few options. What is your budget option, and how accurate must the data be?

Apologies for the questions, but your initial post didn't give us a lot to go on, if you can be a little specific, I'm sure as a group we can suggest something.

Best Regards

Db
