The Metplus electronic weather station is a weather monitoring system for use with a personal computer. The MetPlus can be expanded at any time with either a Climatica or Executive weather station display. Contact us directly for a display only price.
The MetPlus will livestream your weather sensor data onto a PC and record this information as historical records. This data can then be viewed as a listed data presentation and as a monthly summary. Also as graphical format and the data can be linked to a website to share with other users.
We recommend using the comprehensive and easy to use weather monitoring software Cumulus produced by SandaySoft. There is a version of this which works with Instromet’s latest Data logger.

An electronic Instromet barometric pressure sensor can also be used with the Metplus system. This PCB mounts directly to the rear of the sensor PCB and supplies the Metplus with barometric pressure readings.
