Based on the popular MetPak, it has new, improved features including RS232, 422, 485 digital outputs plus additional weather monitoring features such as Barometric pressure and Dew point measurement.

The MetPak II is a compact and lightweight multi-sensor instrument that measures a wide range of weather parameters. Gill ultrasonic technology, as used in the proven WindSonic instrument, measures wind speed and direction. Temperature and humidity are measured using industry standard probes housed in a naturally aspirated radiation shield. Barometric pressure is measured within a vented enclosure. A serial data output is provided to interface to industry standard data loggers.

The MetPak II has no moving parts so requires little maintenance, has a robust, proven design and is very easy to install using a rugged U-bolt mounting clamp that attaches to any vertical pipe up to 50mm. Low power consumption enables this weather station to be used in remote locations where power is at a premium.

Gill Instruments are the world leaders in ultrasonic meteorological sensors with more than 20 years experience in the field. For more information on the New MetPak II or any of Gill's extensive range please visit www.gill.co.uk

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
