Pegasus Astro Uranus Meteo Sensor
Device “talks” with a network of embedded sensors and reports information on screen display.
A fully digital operation in combination with a red film display makes the control of the device quick and simple. A couple of push-buttons on top of the device allows you to slide from screen to screen and read different sensor metrics.
Uranus Meteo Sensor has an internal GPS receiver able to report:
- Accurate GPS Date and Time
- Latitude & Longitude
- Speed & Bearing
- Helps to calculate the exact astronomical dawn and twilight time of your place.
Digital Environmental Sensors
Device “talks” every second (configurable time interval) with a network of embedded sensors and reports the following information on the display.
- Ambient Temperature (°C or °F)
- Relative Humidity %
- Dew Point (°C or °F)
- Absolute Atmospheric Pressure – Station Level Pressure (hPa)
- Relative Atmospheric Pressure – Sea Level Pressure (hPa)
- Barometric and GPS (precise) Altitude (m or ft.)
- Cloud Coverage % (Cloud Index)
- Cloud Temperature
- Cloud Height
Measurement of the sky brightness can be achieved if you keep the right button pressed for more than a second.
- Visual Sky Brightness (MPSAS, NELM and Bortle Scale)
A highly digital sensitive sensor measures the brightness of the night sky at a 30° angle. You can determine the sky’s brightness within seconds. The device displays three different scales on-screen (magnitudes per arc second², visual mags, lux).
Compare the sky brightness at different sites or documentation of progressive light pollution in your area.
- Moon Phase and Moon Age
- Astronomical Twilight Time of your location
On Screen Display Menus
Uranus Meteo Sensor displays all sensor readings on different menus that can be accessed by the two buttons on the top of the handheld device
- Imperial or Metric system display can be configured via the Unity platform software
