Device Classification
   Device Classification       
   Your choices are...         
   Sensor Only       By our definition, a sensor is a transducer, its output is meant for processor, controller or data acquisition system. No display or user interface is present. If you desire a switch, choose this option. 
   Sensor System       By our definition, a sensor system has more capability than a transducer. The unit may have a display and/or a user interface. If you desire a simple gauge, a locally programmable unit (stand-alone) or a controller/totalizer, choose this option 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Weather Component Sensed
   Senses Wind Speed?       Wind Speed and Direction are usually difficult to measure due to their variance over short distances. Wind Speed is typically measured via a rotating propeller or cup (anemometer) device. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Senses Wind Direction?       Wind Speed and Direction are usually difficult to measure due to their variance over short distances. Wind direction is typically measured with a wind vane or aerovane and is reported as the direction winds are coming from. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Rain/Snow Fall?       Actual rain or snowfall is usually derived from a smaller measurement to allow for precise measurements. Instruments used include a common rain gauge or a tipping bucket rain gauge. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Solar Radiation?       A measurement of the spectral range of radiation, including global solar radiation (sun + sky), net radiation (incoming solar - reflected solar) and photosynthetic light spectrum. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Temperature?       A measurement of the average kinetic energy of air molecules surrounding sensing instrument. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Barometric Pressure?       Atmospheric pressure at the Earth's surface is one of the keys to weather. Air in a high pressure area compresses and warms as it descends. The warming inhibits the formation of clouds, meaning the sky is normally sunny in high-pressure areas. Just the opposite occurs within an area of low atmospheric pressure. Barometric pressure is typically measured with a mercury or aneroid barometer. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Relative Humidity?       Relative Humidity is a measure of the amount of water in the air compared with the amount of water the air can hold at the measured temperature. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Specific/Absolute Humidity?       Absolute Humidity is the mass of water vapor in a given volume of air, while Specific Humidity is Absolute Humidity divided by the total mass of the given volume of air. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Water or Moisture Content?       % Water Content is a ratio of water mass to total mass of air. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Dew Point?       Dew Point is a measurement of the temperature air would have to be cooled to in order for saturation to occur. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Measures Total Cloud Cover?       Measures the total cloud cover over a set period of time. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
