Sensors for Custom Weather Stations

There is an extremely wide range of sensors available for weather monitoring. These are a few of our most popular sensors for weather stations equipped with a Campbell Scientific datalogger. Please contact us at (435) 755-0774 or for more information or ordering.

Temperature & Relative Humidity

HC2S3 temperature and humidity sensorHC2S3

The HC2S3, manufactured by Rotronic, is a rugged, accurate temperature and humidity probe that is ideal for long-term, unattended applications. The probe uses an advanced capacitive sensor to measure relative humidity. The probe includes a filter to protect the sensor from dust and particles, for superior performance and reliability. It is compatible with all Campbell Scientific dataloggers.

IMPORTANT: Temperature sensors must be housed in a radiation shield, such as the RAD10 or RAD06.

Barometric Pressure

CS100 barometric pressure sensorCS100

The CS100 measures barometric pressure for the range of 600 to 1100 mb. This range equates to from below sea level (as in a mine) up to 12,000 feet above sea level. Designed for use in environmental applications, the CS100 is compatible with all Campbell Scientific dataloggers.

This sensor is designed to be mounted in Campbell Scientific enclosures.

TE525WS rain gageTE525WS 8 in. Rain Gage

The TE525WS, manufactured by Texas Electronics, is a tipping-bucket rain gage that conforms to the National Weather Service recommendation for an 8 in. funnel orifice. It measures rainfall in 0.01 in. increments (metric version also available). This tipping bucket is compatible with all Campbell Scientific dataloggers, and it is widely used in environmental monitoring applications.

With a CS705 Snowfall Conversion Adapter, this rain gage can also measure the water content of snow.

te525A Wind Screen is also available to minimize the affect of wind on rain measurements.

Other models, including the TE525 6 in. rain gage, are also available.
