AMS156 is low-cost, compact, lightweight, computerised, low power meteorological station for ground measurements. Electronics of the station is enclosed in a cabinet that can be mounted on a standard mounting DIN rail. IP 65 protected cabinet can be used to mount AMS156 outside.

Station can accept all standard meteorological sensors (temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, ground temperature, precipitation, etc.). Other sensors (hydrological, radiological, environmental....) can also be connected. Meteorological calculations, such as evaporation, sunshine duration, QFF, QFE, QNH, dew point, automatic SYNOP generation, etc, can be incorporated in the station software. It measures current data and calculates, in selected time intervals, averages, maximum, minimum, sums, etc..

AMS156 has internal Flash memory, which can be enlarged by standard removable SD memory cards.

Station has internal data memory, 8 12-bit and 8 16-bit analog inputs, 18 digital inputs and 4 digital counters, all with extension possibility and can communicate through RS-232, RS-485 and Ethernet network.
