Weather station and wind study with industrial PLC in Panama

Industrial Solution for weather station applications with OpenMote and an industrial controller Arduino PLC

Introduction automation and PLC controller for weather station

Panama is a country affected by strong storms and meteorological phenomena like tornadoes, that can be very dangerous, and it is important to study them in order to predict and avoid their consequences.

Using Industrial Shields® devices, a weather station can be built to study the wind and all related weather factors. All data can be taken by the appropriate sensors and sent to a PLC for processing and monitoring through one of our Panel PCs.


The aim is to manage a weather station based on open source technology and then monitor it through a cloud platform. The main parameters that will be recorded by the sensors are the following:

  • Wind speed and direction

  • Temperature and humidity (internal and external)

  • Current and accumulated rainfall (daily, monthly, yearly)

  • Rainfall intensity

  • Current atmospheric pressure

  • Weather forecast
