Suntracer KNX pro

RS485 Weather Station


The Weather Station Suntracer RS485 pro measures temperature, wind speed, wind direction, brightness, air humidity and air pressure. It recognises precipitation, receives the GPS signal for time and location and calculates the position of the sun (azimuth and elevation). It sends the currently recorded weather data, date and time once every second. This data can be analyzed by an end device such as SPS, PC or MC.

  • Ultrasonic wind measurement (speed, direction)
  • Brightness measurement, sun position calculation (GPS)
  • Acquisition of temperature, humidity, air pressure
  • Rain detector

  • Connection Connection
  • RS485 data output
  • Brightness measurement (current light strength). Measurement with 5 separate sensors, output of the current highest value (one maximum value)
  • GPS receiver, outputting the current time and location coordinates. The Weather Station Suntracer RS485 pro also computes the position of the sun (azimuth and elevation)
  • Wind measurement: Measurement of wind strength and wind direction (0°- 360°) by ultrasound
  • Precipitation detection: The sensor surface is heated, so that only drops and flakes are recognised as precipitation, but not mist or dew. When the rain or snow stops, the sensor is soon dry again and the precipitation warning ends
  • Temperature measurement. Calculation of the felt temperature (considering wind strength and air humidity)
  • Air humidity measurement (relative, absolute)
  • Calculation of the dew point
  • Air pressure measurement
