Introducing the ULTIMETER® Weather Stations with WeatherText©

Peet Bros. Company, Inc. is pleased to announce the latest innovations in our world-class weather stations:

ULTIMETER 100 with WeatherText©

ULTIMETER 800 with WeatherText©

ULTIMETER 2100 with WeatherText©

The ULTIMETER Weather Stations with WeatherText© still utilize Peet Bros.' patented and proven weather sensor technology, including our unique all-digital wind sensor, but they now provide the data output features you've asked us for - and a few you might not have thought of!

What is WeatherText©?

WeatherText© is an RS-232 serial data output mode in which the instrument puts out one human-readable (text) Weather Report each minute.  Unlike a proprietary hexadecimal data packet which requires application software to decode, the WeatherText© report is the ultimate in weather data portability.

The serial text output is viewed on the monitor of a PC using terminal software such as HyperTerminal (located on your WIndows PC at Start/Programs/Accessories/Communications/HyperTerminal), or transmitted as a data packet which requires no application software at the receiving end to decode the data.  The text output may be "captured" and saved as a .txt file for later viewing or printout.

WeatherText© Tools (available IIQ ’05) is a Windows PC application which enhances the capabilities of WeatherText©:

            WeatherText© Data Logger:  a data acquisition tool which generates and archives log files of weather data in two convenient file formats:  .txt (for convenient viewing using word processor or IE) and .csv (for instant analysis, charting, and graphing on Microsoft Excel or other spreadsheet program)

            WeatherText© Internet:  an FTP utility which transfers the WeatherText© reports to a web server at scheduled intervals (in both .txt and .csv file formats).

            WeatherText© Mail:  an email application which automatically sends WeatherText© reports to selected email addresses at scheduled intervals.  Share critical weather data from your ULTIMETER with personal contacts, weather bureau, or Emergency Management Agency.

WeatherText© APRS:  a tool which automatically generates a weather report, properly formatted to be   transmitted via APRS (Automatic Position Reporting System), an amateur radio technology developed for efficient transmission of data packets.  Requires use of UI-View32 software or compatible equivalent.

Each WeatherText© One-Minute Report includes all current values, plus the highest wind speed over the past five minutes with the associated wind direction, the average wind speed over the last minute, the 3-hour barometric pressure change, today's and long-term rainfall, today's highs and lows, and current time and date.  In addition, each time a key combo is pressed, a comprehensive WeatherText© Complete History Report is output (contains highs and lows for the previous 7 days plus long-term).
