Weather impacts every aspect of operations for offshore platforms, ships, and in ports. Rapid changes in weather and sea conditions make monitoring of both meteorological and oceanographic parameters a critically important part of ensuring safety, while also maintaining operational efficiency.
Reliable environmental monitoring is critical for various offshore needs. The 200WX provides accurate and dependable weather information to assure safe and efficient operations. The numerous sensors contained in the compact size of the 200WX is an attractive feature for installations where space is limited, such as on buoys, USVs, and AUVs. Having worked with many autonomous vehicle and buoy OEMs, AIRMAR has further developed the 200WX to meet the operational challenges of the harsh ocean environment and is IPX7 rated.
