RWS-GMX500 Portable Weather Station Hire

Quick Overview

Compact Portable Remote Weather Station with a GMX500 Weather Station. The GMX500 includes integrated sensors for wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, relative humidity and atmospheric pressure, with optional SP-LITE for solar irradiance and a tipping rain bucket for rainfall measurement. Data is collected using a DT82I that can be downloaded to a USB memory stick, or connected to a PC.

GMX500 Parameters

  • Temperature °C
  • Relative humidity %RH
  • Wet bulb temperature °C
  • Absolute humidity g/m³
  • Air density kg/m³
  • Wind speed m/s
  • Wind direction °
  • Wind chill °C


Wind speed and direction measurements are measured using an ultrasonic sensor.
Average speed and direction together with WMO averages and gust data can also be

Measurement Range: 0.1 to 60m/s

± 3% to 40 m/s,
± 5% to 60 m/s
Resolution m/s: 0.1m/s
Units: m/s


A combined instrument mounted inside three double louvered, naturally aspirated radiation shields with no moving parts. This results in a  high performance across each measurement over long periods of time.

  Temperature Humidity Pressure
Measurement Range: -40 to +70°C 0-100%RH 300 to 1100mBar
Accuracy (@20°C): ± 0.3°C ±2%RH ±0.5mBar
Resolution: 0.1°C 1%RH 0.1mBar
Units: °C %RH mBar


Optional Sensors

Solar Irradiance

The SP Lite 2 is a simple, low cost pyranometer for routine measurements of solar radiation. The unit has been designed to be used in all weather conditions with minimal maintenance. The SP Lite 2 features a silicon photo-diode detector with a conical diffuser to provide a full 180° field of view and allow rain to run off. The photo-diode does limit the spectral range, 400-1100nm, but this provides a similar spectral response to photovoltaic solar cells.

Measurement Range: +2000Wm²
Resolution: 100µV/Wm²
Units: Wm²


The TR-525 rain gauge is a freestanding tipping rain bucket used to measure precipitation totals with a pulse output for rainfall totals. The 6" open top funnel allows for a 0.01" measurement unit (convertible to mm). The rain bucket is free standing but needs secured to the surface to prevent it being blown, or knocked, over.
