The Ambient WS-2080 is a compact, easy to install complete weather station with impressive reliability at a very low cost.
This weather station measures wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity (both inside and outside), rainfall and barometric pressure.
The console also displays dew point and wind chill, increments of rain (hourly, daily, monthly, yearly), includes a barograph and weather forecasting.
A radio controlled clock synchronizes the date and time for the utmost accuracy.
The weather station’s console displays a wide range of parameters in an easy-to-read format on a large LCD. The attractively thin console can be placed on a desktop or mounted to a wall.
Other features include alarming, high and low history, archive history, and calibration.
The console includes an integrated USB port for connection to a computer, or the WeatherBridge Web Appliance (optional).
- The wireless range is 300 feet line of sight (100 feet under most conditions).
- The wireless signal will not penetrate solid metal or earth.
- Mounting pole is not included and sold separately. The WS-2080 includes brackets and adapter for mounting to any 1-2 inch diameter pole.
- For improved temperature accuracy, order the SRS100LX Solar Radiation Shield.
The Sensor Array
The sensor array measures wind speed, wind direction, temperature, humidity, rainfall and receives radio controlled time from the atomic clock in Bolder, CO.
The 433 MHz wireless sensor array communicates to the console. The wireless range is 300 feet line of sight (100 feet under most conditions).
The sensor array updates every 48 seconds. The maximum wind speed (gust) and average wind speed are continuously sampled within the 48 second time period, so you never miss a wind gust.
The self emptying rain gauge provides resolution to 0.01 inches.
All the weather data from the base station and weather history data with user adjustable measuring intervals can be recorded and uploaded to your PC or Mac.

Works great. I never have figured out how to find the accumulated rainfall. Wish I could but maybe it doesn't keep track.Published 1 day ago by Suellen White

This is my second backyard weather station. For the same cost, my old system from Acu-rite, was never accurate. This Ambient station is remarkably accurate and quite stable. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Frank G
