Weather Station Hire

CWi Technical Ltd has a limited stock of high quality stations available for hire on short or long term trials. Typically, if you require a station for more than 12 months, it is cost effective to purchase, but for shorter periods, usually 3 6 or 12 months, hiring can be a cost effective solution to acquire high quality data on your trials sites.

System Availability

Hire systems are usually in stock items. At any time we usually have one or two available for immediate deployment, but you should always check with us first. Hire units are let on a first come, first served basis.

Hire Specification

The specification of the basic hire systems are:

  • Air Temperature
  • Relative Humidity
  • Wind Speed
  • Wind Direction
  • Solar energy
  • Rainfall
  • Soil Temperature (x1)
  • Soil Moisture (x1)

Additional sensors can be applied on request as we always hold a stock of spares, but this will increase the cost of your hire.


Whats included...

For the Standard Hire fee, stations are let on a monthly basis. Installation and de-installation are not included in the monthly hire fee and we do not allow thrid parties to install our systems so depending on location, and installation/knockdown fee will apply at the beginning and end of your hire period.

The hire fee includes data management, and your data will be available on our data centre system here when the unit has been comissioned. Hire units are not eligible for data share.

Should the system fail in service, we accept no liability whatsoever for any loss of data. We will, however attend the unit within 72 hours and make good any failure. We do not insure against theft or accidental damage while the unit is in your posession. So you will need adequate cover for these systems. We usually recommend an insurance value of about £6000. If the equipment is damaged while in your hire, you will be liable for its repair charges.
