ORIGINAL
COMPLETE SPECIFICATION STANDARD PATENT Invention Title: "WEATHER STATION" The following statement is a full description of this invention, including the best method of performing it known to me:
TITLE
"WEATHER STATION" FIELD OF THE INVENTION THIS INVENTION relates to a weather station for measuring meteorological conditions.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION Conventional weather stations comprise one or more meteorologica! sensors mounted on a frame. The sensors are used to detect a particular meteorological condition and produce a sensor signal. A number of sensors have been employed including anemometer (wind speed) and wind direction sensors, temperature •and humidity sensor, barometric pressure sensor, solar radiation sensor, ultra-violet light sensor and a rain gauge.
~Each sensor usually has its own housing. The housing a 15 provides protection from adverse conditions and may include signal conditioning or a dedicated converter. The converter measures the *e 0 sensor signal and produces a converter signal which is transmitted oooo• and processed to a central data collecting device, typically a microprocessor. The converter may be physically separated from the micro- S 20 processor and is purposefully designed as a standard unit adaptable to different sensors and producing a converter signal recognisable by the micro-processor. The micro-processor receives converter signals arising from each sensor and processes each converter signal in accordance with preset or user set programs.
The frame provides the sensors and their housings with a position in which they can "sense" the particular weather element effectively. Most frames have extended unwieldy structures in order to expose the sensors to the weather. A T-shaped frame is common as are more complex arrangements.
An example of a conventional weather station is Environdata's Weather Master. The Weather Master has essentially a T-shaped frame with an anemometer and wind direction sensor on each end of the cross arm of the T, a solar radiation sensor mounted above the cross arm, a data recorder contained within a box mounted below the arm, a radiation screen mounted below the box and associated therewith a temperature sensor and humidity sensor. The Weather Master also has a solar panel mounted on the box to provide a source of power for the system. The Weather Master may have an
S
optional rain gauge located separately on the ground.
*There are a number of variations of the conventional weather station. A further example is the weather station disclosed in the European Patent Specification EP0413640 which comprises a S support frame mounted on a box-shaped platform. The platform 20 contains a command module, a memory means, a rain gauge and a psychrometer. The support frame has three arms. The 'trid of each arm contains either an anemometer, wind direction sensor or a solar radiation sensor.
A further development of the conventional weather station is the arrangement within a single housing of an anemometer and wind direction sensor as disclosed in British Patent Specification GB2130828. The housing, however, appears to be mounted at an end of an arm of a support frame.
There are, however, a number of disadvantages associated with the conventional weather stations. Because of the conventional weather station's awkward shape, it must be transported to a suitable on-site location in parts. However, the assembly of the parts including the making of appropriate electrical connections, is complicated, requiring the purchaser to be familiar with electrical and mechanical assembly. Assembly problems are exacerbated when assembly occurs on-location distant from an
*O
adequate workshop. As well, the data collecting device of each •individual system requires programming by either manufacturer, h sup, ter or user to suit the particular configuration of sensors thus ~requiring the purchaser to have expertise with programming and computers. These types of problems are further exemplified when 4 one or more components break down and the weather station needs
S
B B to be disassembled on location and returned to the manufacturer or 20 supplier and then reassembled on location with the new or repaired components.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The object of the present invention is to provide a weather station to overcome at least in part, one or more of the disadvantages associated with conventional weather stations.
In one aspect the invention provides a weather station for measuring meteorological conditions comprising:a mounting member; a plurality of meteorological sensors mounted to the mounting member wherein at least two sensors are spaced from each other along a longitudinal axis of the mounting member; a data recorder mounted to the mounting member and electrically associated with each of said sensors; and a housing surrounding the mounting member.
The mounting member may be of any suitable shape :o depending on the number and type of sensors used. Preferably, the mounting member is centrally located. Preferably, the mounting member is a unitary plate which is releasably attachable to a base support. Alternatively, the mounting member may comprise a plurality lotO of frame members such as a vertical frame member and one or more transverse frame members. The mounting member may have one or more releasable sites for attachment of the sensors.
Any type of suitable sensor may be used and may include S 20 an anemometer, a wind direction sensor, a solar radiation sensor, a rainfall sensor, a temperature sensor, a humidity sensor, a barometric pressure sensor and an ultra-violet light sensor.
The rainfall sensor preferably includes a tipping bucket rain gauge. The rainfall sensor may have a collecting funnel in which 6 the rain is directed to the tipping bucket rain gauge. The collecting funnel may be mounted in any suitable position on the weather station that allows unobstructed and representatives sampling of rainfall. The collecting funnel is preferably mounted at the top of the weather station with the tipping bucket rain gauge mounted in a suitable operational position. Preferably, there is a suitable means such as a discharge pipe for discharge of accumulated rain water.
The solar radiation sensor or pyranometer is preferably mounted in direct sunlight in such a manner that it provides an unrestricted field of view of the upper hemisphere and limits the interference of reflected light. The solar radiation sensor may be mounted at the top of the weather station. Preferably, the solar radiation sensor is mounted so that its top surface is substantially level with the top of the collecting funnel. The solar radiation sensor may be mounted within the collecting funnel. Preferably the solar radiation sensor is attached to the outside of the collecting funnel.
The temperature and humidity sensors are preferably eS mounted in a position where the temperature sensor measures true air temperature and the humidity sensor measures true relative humidity.
S 20 The temperature and humidity sensors are preferably surrounded by a sensor screen housing which allows air flow but prevents entry of direct sunlight, rainfall and high speed winds. An insulating layer may be added to minimise heat transfer into the sensor screen housing from other components.
The anemometer may include a turbine of any suitable shape such as a single turbine, double turbine or a three cup turbine.
The turbine is preferably mounted in a position where the wind is not obstructed or deflected. The anemometer is preferably mounted at the base of the weather station.
A wind direction sensor may include a wind vane of any suitable shape. Preferably the wind vane is mounted in a position that is exposed to unobstructed or undeflected wind. Preferably, the wind direction sensor uses an incremental encoder to produce a sensor signal. Alternatively, an absolute (analogue) encoder may be used instead of an incremental encoder. Preferably, the wind speed sensor and wind direction sensors are of lightweight construction. Preferably the wind speed sensor and wind direction sensors are removable so that they are not damaged during transportation.
Oo e The weather station may comprise any two types of sensors such as the anemometer and the wind direction sensor, the temperature and the humidity sensors or the rainfall and the solar radiation sensors. Alternatively, the weather station may have three,
S
four, five, six or more sensors. The weather station preferably has six
VS
o S 20 sensors.
Each sensor is adjaceni to the longitudinal axis of the mounting member. Preferably each sensor is substantially in-line with each other sensor providing a sensor arrangement that is relatively compact compared with the sensor arrangement in conventional 8 weather stations.
The data recorder may include a signal measurement means which measures the sensor signal. The data recorder may include a processing means which processes the sensor signal. The processing means may be a micro-processor which processes the measured sensor signal to produce data. Processing may produce data from individual sensor signals. During processing, two or more signals from sensors may be considered together to produce relevant data. The micro-processor may include a memory means. The data recorder may also include a data transmission means which transmits data to a computer and monitor, display unit or the like. The data recorder may also have a removable data storage device as a means for collecting and gathering the data. The data recorder may have a display device such as a flashing indicator or liquid crystal display (LCD). The data recorder may also have a keyboard for entry of °information and commands. The data transmission means may send data by any suitable communication means using devices such as cables, modems, telephones, radio, satellites or the like.
S
Alternatively, the data recorder may condition the signal from the o
S
20 sensor and transmit the conditioned signal to a remote processing means.
The data recorder may be programmable. Preferably the data recorder is pre-programmed before it is transported and installed in the field.
The weather station may be powered by a nonrechargeable internal battery or a rechargeable internal battery recharged by any suitable means such as electricity from a solar panel, external battery, a mains power outlet or other suitable source.
The housing may have one or more connections for connection with additional sensors that are external to the housing.
Preferably the external sensor has a standard Environdata interface or a standard multisensor interface (such as SDI-12) which allows more than one sensor to be connected. Additional sensors include grass temperature sensor, water temperature sensor, leaf wetness sensor, soil temperature sensor and pressure sensor.
*The housing may be any suitable shape. The housing is 4 9* Se preferably substantially cylindrical. The housing may include one or more screen rings. The housing may have 3, 4 or 5 radiation screens.
09 The housing may comprise a fixed portion and a removable portion.
o" The removable portion is preferably in a position which provides access to the internal battery, electronics, data recorder and sensors.
The weather station is suitably transportable and allows easy on-site installation. The weather station may be installed in any 9.
:*Soo 20 suitable manner. For example, one or more locations on the housing 0:090 may be used to mount the weather station on a post mounted in the ground or an arm extending outwardly from the post. Alternatively, the weather station may have two mounting points with one at the top and one at the bottom of the housing.
The weather station may be tailor made to a customer's specifications with the mounting of desired sensors and an appropriately programmed data recorder. Preferably, the data recorder is pre-programmed and the sensors mounted and ine electrical connections made before the weather station is transported to an onsite location. In the event of problems such as a malfunctioning or damaged component, the weather station may be forwarded for repairs as a single unit.
