What exactly is an Automated Weather Station (AWS)?

An Automated Weather Station (AWS) is a system comprising sensors, data loggers, communication systems, and power provisions. Its purpose is to measure and record diverse weather parameters, delivering up-to-the-second weather data for the purposes of monitoring, analysis, and forecasting.

One station or system can be connected to one data logger.

There are several available options:
  1. Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) Utilizing a GSM modem (equipped with a SIM card) to establish an internet connection.
  2. Local Area Network (LAN) Deploying an Ethernet cable (wired connection) to create a Local Area Network.
  3. Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Using VSAT for locations lacking GSM coverage. This method relies on satellites to access the internet.
  4. Radio Frequency (RF) – VHF/UHF Utilizing radio frequencies to enable communication between sites and servers. This entails the use of both a receiver and a transmitter.
  5. Wireless Employing wireless devices to establish communication between sites and servers. Both devices need to remain within the wireless range, typically suited for short distances.
