The Capricorn FLX System Designed around a Control Module that is housed in a compact, utilitygrade enclosure. The Capricorn FLX offers serial communication over
RS-232 or RS-485 to various monitoring options.
Weather Display Console. The Weather Display Console uses “intelligent” touch-screen technology. With its
programmable microprocessor and abundant memory, the console displays
weather information, performs complex computations, and stores data.
The Weather Display Console features a seven-inch, TFT color LCD panel with
800 x 480 pixels resolution. It can connect directly to the weather station with a
serial port or to the Weather MicroServer utilizing existing Ethernet.
The display console is flexible and can be factory-programmed to suit specific
market and industry requirements. It is available in three mounting options:
Panel Mount/Flush Mount
19'' Rack Mount
WeatherMaster™ Software. This professional-grade software is designed to optimize the
capabilities of CWS Weather Stations. Providing real-time
computer weather monitoring, WeatherMaster offers:
Display and automatic logging of all measured and calculated
Downwind vector wind and wind character-plotting screens
An open Microsoft Access® database for archival with easy
retrieval and compatibility with other
On-the-fly graphing and trend display of all parameters
Alarm notification via computer, email, pager or cell phone
Multi-station monitoring and data acquisition
Interface with CAMEO/ALOHA software for plume modeling
and evacuation corridor predictions
Weather MicroServer. The Weather MicroServer
is a self-contained,
utilizing an embedded
Linux operating system. It
creates an “Internet-ready”
system by automatically providing FTP output, XML web
service, and Internet browser user interface.
SNMP and Modbus/OPC communication protocols are
standard for Industrial Management applications.
The Weather MicroServer has datalogging capability. It
connects to your network with an included Ethernet cable.
Two serial ports offer interface to both the Weather
Display Console and additional peripheral devices or
sensors such as visibility, solar radiation, and the Orion
LT wind sensor.
The Weather MicroServer can provide real-time weather
data to WeatherMaster Software over the network. This
allows users to simultaneously monitor the weather
using WeatherMaster on any network computer.
4-20 mA Signal Output For industrial PLC interface, the Capricorn FLX 420 offers
4-20mA signal output to interface to PLC, DCS, and
