The Lark Weather Station is an all-encompassing tool for accurately collecting atmospheric data. This device streamlines the measurement and recording of crucial weather components like wind speed, wind direction, temperature, humidity, and air pressure. Highlights include live communication capabilities and compatibility with popular controllers such as micro:bit, Raspberry Pi, ESP32, and Unihiker development boards. It also offers built-in storage, a compact design for effortless storage, and a universal tripod interface. It is a valuable instrument for instructors, pupils, and scientists studying meteorology.

 

Why Choose Lark Weather Station?

The Earth's atmosphere is a dynamic and intricate system influenced by various factors, with wind speed, wind direction, temperature, humidity, and air pressure being pivotal. A comprehensive understanding of atmospheric movement necessitates precise detection and recording of these elements. Traditionally, acquiring meteorological data involved a cumbersome process of integrating multiple sensors, requiring time-consuming wiring, programming, debugging, and assembly. This posed significant challenges for educators and students interested in meteorological research. Moreover, existing commercial weather stations are often specialized weather monitoring equipment that cannot be developed twice and lack adaptability, thus falling short in meeting the diverse needs of research. The portable Lark weather station addresses these issues.

Five-Element Measurement

The Lark Weather Station is an all-in-one tool for capturing accurate, real-time meteorological data across five key parameters, ensuring comprehensive weather monitoring with ease and precision.

Five-Element Measurement


Supports Real-Time Communication

The Lark Weather Station offers real-time data output with support for both UART and I2C communication modes, the data output includes physical units, making it directly understandable and usable for users.



Compatible with Popular Controllers

The Lark Weather Station connectivity with popular controllers like micro:bit, Arduino,Raspberry Pi, ESP32, and Unihiker , the controller gets the data and can perform more logical actions, such as closing windows or even predicting the weather. Real-time data can also be viewed by connecting to the Gravity: Science Data Acquisition Module.



Built-In Storage Space

The Lark Weather Station comes with a built-in 16M storage space, capable of storing 160 days of data at a recording rate of once per minute, with easy data export via a Type-C interface.



Compact Size, Easy to Store

The Lark Weather Station, with its compact size akin to a coke can, offers portability and ease of placement, its detachable wind vane design is very convenient for storage. Suitable for desktop placement during classroom teaching and for carrying around during outdoor explorations.



Modular Universal Tripod Interface

Equipped with a 1/4-inch standard threaded port at the bottom, the weather station enables the use of tripods of different sizes to suit various teaching scenarios.



Strong Waterproof Performance

The Lark Weather Station boasts a circuit board sprayed with a waterproof protective coating, offering an upgraded level of water resistance. Its all-metal body ensures sturdiness and durability.

Note: Due to the presence of the Type-C and Gravity communication interfaces at the bottom of the Lark Weather Instrument, please take precautions to prevent rainwater from entering these two ports during outdoor use.


 



How to Use

  • Real-time Data Viewing: Connect the SCI acquisition module, which can automatically identify the Lark Weather Station. The SCI DAQ module displays the Lark Weather Station's data on the screen, turning it into a handheld weather instrument for real-time monitoring of meteorological data.
  • Standalone Deployment: Connect to a 5V power source or adapter, and the Lark Weather Station will automatically commence data collection and recording. By default, it collects and stores data every 30 seconds. After collection, you can connect the weather station to a computer to export the data. The data is saved in CSV table format, allowing you to quickly plot data curves and facilitate further analysis for expeditious completion of meteorological exploration experiments.
  • Integration with Controllers: Connect the Lark Weather Station module to Arduino or other controllers, enabling rapid acquisition of meteorological data through programming. With the ability to customize Arduino programs, you gain flexibility in utilizing meteorological data, providing limitless possibilities for various applications. For instance, you can connect it to controllers with WiFi capabilities, such as the UNIHIKER board, to create an online digital weather station.
