    Automatic Weather Stations (AWS) incorporate high-quality sensors and measurement instrumentation, and are sector-targeted to meet specific needs:

    • Synoptic networks: for professional use by national met offices
    • Road weather information: pavement temperature and conditions and meteorological observations to help manage equipment, personnel, and treatments efficiently
    • Aviation weather observations: temperature, precipitation, wind, atmospheric pressure, visibility
    • Hydrometeorology: stream gauges, flow/level, water quality
    • Air quality: smoke, smog
    • Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) or Data Collection Platforms (DCPs): provide powerful information management, logging and monitoring sensor data, then forward that data to network servers


    Comprehensive integration of weather stations and data communications/networking; single provision of hardware and software assures complete compatibility of systems and full data integrity with real-time delivery:

    • Scalability -- Deploy the capability you need and expand functionality easily, as needs grow or change, with the number and specific type of sensors and minimum investment
    • Configurability -- Open architecture accommodates the best sensors available, specific to your needs, and the communications protocol and telemetry appropriate for the project


    Weather-sensitive companies and industries find Schneider Electric Surface Observation Networks are a maximum-value solution for ‘nowcasting’ dangerous or impactful weather, reliably and in real time. The accurate and timely information these systems provide allows users to make rapid and effective operations decisions that improve safety and efficiency.
