Overview

WEATHERPAK® Response weather stations are impervious to airborne chemicals and designed to be deployed directly in the hot zone. These models can be set up in less than 60 seconds, without tools, by one person wearing full protective gear. A WEATHERPAK® Response weather station can survive a 1.8 m (6 ft) drop to concrete and withstand a decontamination scrubdown, as well as many other environmental hazards.

Note: WEATHERPAK® Response is manufactured by Coastal Environmental Systems, Inc., a Campbell Scientific company. CAMEO®/ALOHA®: registered trademarks of the US EPA and NOAA.

Benefits and Features
