  • MaxiMet GMX400 Weather Station

GMX400 Weather Station for Temp, RH, Pressure & Precipitation

Quick Overview

The MaxiMet GMX400 is a combined instrument mounted inside three double louvered, naturally aspirated radiation shields for the measurement of ambient temperature, humidity and pressure, and precipitation, with no moving parts. The results are high performance across each measurement over long periods of time.The data is output in serial formats - RS232, RS485. SDI12, NMEA and MODBUS.

MaxiMet Configuration Cable
1.8m RS232 to USB Configuration Cable for the Maximet Weather Stations. Configuration cable provides 5V power to the Maximet and allows for the 9-way Maximet connector to connect to a PC for the initial set up and configuration. GMX should be in Safe Mode to allow for configuration and the adaptor cable is not weatherproof and should not be used one units are installed on site.

Mounting Bracket
Anodized Aluminium Bracket for mounting to pole and wall. Includes an aluminium sensor adaptor for WindSonic or MaxiMet, fully anodised to reduce corrosion. The Bracket uses a mounting clamp suitable for attaching to a vertical pipe with a diameter of 30-58mm. When mounting the MaxiMet, consider the position, orientation and alignment of the unit. Mount at the top of a pipe to ensure a clear unobstructed measurement view. Kit includes stainless steel mounting bolts, multiple earth points and wall / pole mounting kit
