SkyAlert- from Interactive Astronomy

 

The Sensors Module

New: Now All Sensors are "Field Replaceable" (scroll down for details)

 

Calibrate Sensors

Allows sensor adjustments to match other weather units.

 

The Main Software Interface

A small compact display for quick overview of the data

 

The Settings

Straightforward adjustments, settings and unsafe alert threasholds

A complete weather system for automated roof closure.

 

 

 

The system monitors:

Humidity % Level

Wind Speed mph or kph

All Temperatures in.... C or F

Calculated Dew Point Temperature

Precipitation Sensor for- Dry/ Damp/ Rain

Brightness Levels- Daylight/ Dimlight/ Darkness

IR Sky Temperature to deternine Clear or Cloudy Skies

Graph dislplay can plot in either 12 hour time or 24 hour time

Basic data provided to imaging and roof control software to close your roof for:

> Hardware Failure or loss of data

> Cloudly Skies or Rain

> Hi Wind or Humidity

> Low Temperatures

Note: Some imaging and/ or roof control software may not process the all of the above data.

 

A High Quality Graph Is Included !

Live weather data from "Meadow View Observatory" updating every 20 seconds.

 

 

Specifications

Generates "Boltwood I & II Text Files" to provide weather data to most remote roof controllers, such as- SkyRoof

Text files compatible with these imaging apps.-. CCDAP... ACP... SGP. . CCD Commander... MaxPilote... PRiSM

Weather text data may shutdown your observatory for clouds, rain, high wind, high humidity or low temps.

Creates & saves a .jpg or .png file for the internal ftp uploader, to allow website viewing of graph.

Has an intergrated heater for dew removal on rain sensor. (Includes a 9 vdc power supply)

Uses direct USB connectivity to the internal board (No serial adapter is needed)

Board is USB powered (No ext. pwr. supply needed, uses 25' active cable)

Monitor Resolution for graph display (Min Height of 800 pixels)

Required Operating Systems (Windows....XP, 7, 8 , 10)
