The station is powered by a Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station, with data collected every 2 seconds and fed to a range of online services. This site is updated every 1-5 minutes from data collected using the WeatherCat software package from Trixology.
The station consists of an anemometer, a rain gauge, UV sensor, solar sensor and a thermo-hygro sensor. A secondary station has two soil moisture and soil temperature sensors, along with a leaf wetness sensor. All are situated in optimal positions for the highest accuracy possible in a rural back garden.
