The EOS-1000MR is a complete marine weather observation system providing accurate, real-time environmental data to commercial mariners.
Our system is built to withstand the harsh conditions experienced by ocean-going vessels. This complete weather station will obtain data from all the EOS sensors as well as the vessel’s navigation data from the ship's onboard GPS and compass. Using the vessel's speed and direction, EOS will calculate the true wind speed and direction. Data will be displayed on a dedicated dimmable marine monitor as well as the small DU-600 display. For onshore monitoring, the data will also be available through the EOS cloud.
The EOS-1000 is an advanced all-in-one weather station, which collects and remotely displays environmental data from multiple high precision sensors.
An on-board Linux-based processor stores data, which can be viewed online or uploaded to a remote customer database. Optionally, we offer data storage and viewing via our secure EOS Cloud.
All external components are made from the highest quality UV-stabilized ABS, high-grade aluminum, and stainless steel. The optional LTE cellular interface allows users to collect data from remote locations such as agricultural sites, highways, energy sites (re-usable) or any other site which lacks a reliable internet connection.
Built-in sensors monitor the health of EOS-1000 to display battery condition and internal temperature. The unit has a tamper alarm to provide an alert when the housing has been accessed.
A high resolution all-weather webcam can be added for visual reference of weather conditions and other useful images from the site.
Our modular concept provides the ability to create a system that meets the customers requirements. Data from multiple sensors are connected to the DCU unit. The data from these sensors will be uploaded in real time to the EOS cloud and will also be stored in a local database as well as a local backup.
In addition to environmental data, the EOS system collects data such as battery voltage, door status (tamper contact), and internal temperature. Several spare analog channels can be used for non standard, or customer supplied sensors.
Inside the EOS1000 housing is a small LCD display. This display provides all vital information that might be needed to set up the station or obtain data to troubleshoot when no computer is present. Inside the same housing there is a small lithium battery to provide power for three hours in case of a power failure.
The SD slot contains the card with the Linux operating system. This allows a quick and easy swap out for upgrades and trobleshooting. The USB connection is used for the backup storage device. All data is backup on this USB mass storage. Ample space is available to add additional modules such as a camera module and a 3G/4G modem.
With many power and communication options, the EOS stations can be installed at multiple locations.
- Compact and modular hardware
- High grade stainless steel and ABS composite hardware
- Direct connection to Shipboard Navigation sensors
- Dedicated marine display for own weather data as well as other ships
- Dedicated wind display for own wind data
- AC/DC Passive PoE
This is our standard wind speed and direction unit. The WU250 wind anemometer is made from high grade stainless steel and composite acetal. High precision, low friction hybrid ball bearings ensure accurate readings for both wind speed and direction. Electronic components are of the highest quality, employing both Triaxes© and magnetic Hall Sensors to ensure a constant measurement.
Our standard module provides temperature, humidity, and pressure readings. The high accuracy sensors ensure reliable, high quality data collection. In additional to the measured data, the powerful EOS software calculates the following:
- Relative Pressure
- Windchill (wind module must be connected)
|Temperature and Pressure|
|Temperature Range||-40°C to +80°C (-40°F to +175°F)|
|Temperature Accuracy||+/-0.25°C (0.45°F)|
|Temperature Resolution||0.1°C (0.18°F)|
|Pressure Range||750-1100 mBar (22.14-32.48 inHg)|
|Pressure Accuracy||+/- 0.5 mBar (0.014 inHg)|
|Pressure Resolution||0.1 mBar (0.003 inHg)|
|Range||0 to 100% Rel. Humidity|
Unlike the traditional "tipping bucket" style sensor, our optical rain sensor, senses water hitting the outside surface. The rugged sensor is very sensitive and begins to providd data as soon as water is detected.
Our solar module measures solar luminosity and radiation levels. The EOS software will calculate the percentage of cloud cover based on the maximum solar amount that can be expected, based on almanac data. This module also provides a calculation of the hours of full sunlight received during each day.
|Range||0 to 1200 W/m²|
|Spectral Range||400 nm to 1100 nm|
The DU-600 is a dedicated Marine display. Highly visible from all angles in full sunlight and dimmable for nighttime navigation. It shows current wind speed in m/s, km/h or knots, as well as the 10 minute average. Wind direction has the same update interval, as well as 1 minute average.
This is a module designed for the EOS-1000MR, however it can be used on any Windows or Linux based computer with a regular USB port. This device features four RS484 / RS422 serial input ports as well as two serial output ports that are connected to a computer through one serial USB port. The four input and two output ports are compliant with the NMEA 0183 / IEC 61162 specification and are all isolated, making them suitable for use with regular computers on board of ships. Many such interfaces cause ground faults but the use of isolation circuits prevent this on this model.
A picture is worth a lot "of data". Adding a camera to our system provides real time visual reference and discourages vandalism or unauthorized tampering.
Our digital high precision ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor is an alternative to the typical mechanical system.
Our lightning detection sensor can directly interface to our EOS-1000 main station to:
- Detect both cloud-to-ground and cloud-to-cloud flashes
- Estimate distance to lightning strikes between 1km and 40km in 14 steps
- Detect if the storm is coming toward, (or traveling away from), the sensor
- Reject ‘man made’ disturbances
In addition to the data collected by the SU40, the SU50 has the added capability to collect UV-A (240nm~ 370nm) data.
|Range||0 to 12 index|
|Spectral Range||280 nm to 360 nm (UV-A)m|
