SparkFun Weather Meter Kit

The SparkFun weather meter kit is a set of basic mechanical components for building a weather station. This kit represents the three basic elements of weather measurement: wind speed, wind direction and precipitation. Whether you are a farmer, a professional meteorologist or a weather enthusiast, building your own weather station can be a truly rewarding project. However, when it comes to measuring the weather, you need some pretty specialised sensors.

Weather Meter

This kit represents the three basic components of weather measurement: wind speed, wind direction and rainfall.

None of the sensors in this kit contain active electronics; instead, they use sealed magnetic reed switches and magnets, so you must generate a voltage to take measurements. On the positive side, the sensors are easy to interpret.

The rain gauge is a self-emptying bucket type rain gauge that activates a momentary shut-off button for every 0.011" of rain that is collected. The anemometer (wind speed meter) encodes wind speed by simply closing a switch on each rotation. A wind speed of 1.492 MPH produces a switch closure once per second. Finally, the wind vane reports the wind direction as a voltage that is produced by the combination of resistors inside the sensor. The weathervane magnet could close two switches at once, allowing up to 16 different positions to be indicated, but we have found 8 positions to be more realistic.

Includes:

  • 1x Weather Meter Kit
  • 1x Pocket Screwdriver Set
  • NOTE: Micro:bit board not included
  • NOTE: Weather stations require specialised sensors to accurately measure and report weather conditions.
