Both hardware and software are manufactured by Instromet Ltd .
Sensor: rotating cups using a Hall effect sensor and wind vane.
Sunshine Duration Sensor: within glass dome; comparison between shade and sensor produces pulse every 36 sec when ratio exceeds a fixed value.
Rainfall Sensor: mounted in an aerodynamically shaped moulding to reduce effects of wind. The rain is collected by an 80 mm diameter funnel which passes drips through an infrared beam and counts drops.
Air Temperature Sensor:precision NTC thermistor within a radiation shield. Humidity is determined algorithmically by comparison with a wet bulb sensor.
Pressure Sensor: electronic barometric pressure sensor, mounted within data logger.
