LB150 Ultrasonic WeatherStation® Instrument Real-Time, Site-Specific Weather Information The LB150 Ultrasonic WeatherStation® Instrument meets a growing need for real-time, site-specific weather information. The unit provides accurate data when monitoring weather conditions on-site or in remote locations. The Airmar WeatherStation Instrument is the only all-in-one weather sensor that calculates apparent wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, air temperature, relative humidity, dew point and wind chill temperature. With the internal compass and GPS, true wind speed and direction can also be calculated. The UV stabilized, compact housing is fully waterproof and resistant to chemicals. • The only WeatherStation offering the perfect weather monitoring solution for any application by combining seven sensors into one compact unit with no moving parts. • The lack of moving parts improves reliability, superior accuracy and longevity in the field. • Other weather stations would take at least three separate sensors to achieve all of the weather readings in the LB150. • Low-cost and easy-to-install on a standard pole with 1”-14 UNS or 3/4” NPT threads allowing for use as a fixed unit or portable system. Actual Size Features • No moving parts—maintenance-free operation • True and apparent wind speed and direction • Barometric pressure • Air and wind chill temperature • Heat index temperature • Relative humidity • Dew point temperature • Internal GPS provides position (latitude and longitude), speed over ground (SOG), course over ground (COG), and time • Two-axis solid-state compass provides heading • Three-axis accelerometer provides pitch and roll • Plastic housing is less prone to lightning strikes • RS232 or RS422 output • WeatherCaster™ PC Software included • WeatherStation’s readings are not affected by the common problems associated with mechanical and weather measuring devices such as bearing wear, salt and dirt build-up and birds, all which can result in data inaccuracy or overall failure. • Power and standard RS422 interface capabilities provided by a single cable (various lengths available). • WeatherCaster PC software and USB converter provide a complete solution to connect directly to a PC.

Performance Graphs Compared to Vaisala Instruments Understanding True and Apparent Wind Virtually all mechanical and ultrasonic anemometers report apparent wind speed and direction. The Airmar LB150 is unique because it calculates both true and apparent wind speed & direction. These wind readings are the same if the unit is mounted in a fixed location. However, if the LB150 is mounted on a moving vehicle, the apparent wind is the wind you would feel on your hand if you held it out the window while going down the highway. Since the LB150 has a built in GPS and compass, it calculates the true...
