Our Quick Fire Remote Automated Fire Weather Station (RAWS) is ideal for prescribed burns or other temporary installations when time is of the essence. We built this system to be quick and nimble - each station can be setup by a single person in less than 3 minutes without any tools or technical expertise.
The Quick Fire comes pre-programmed to output key fire weather indicators including;
This system typically measures the following parameters:
The Quick Fire system is preprogrammed to monitor wind speed and direction, air temperature and relative humidity, rainfall, barometric pressure, solar radiation, and lightning strike count & distance. Simply plug in the sensor on install to begin gathering data - no programming or wiring required.
There are a variety of communication options to allow remote access to your Quick Fire:
Typically the most familiar option, you can connect to your Quick Fire through GOES (TX321) or Iridium (COM9522B) satellite. Alternatively, let us handle the data collection through Data Services. For a monthly fee, we'll schedule your collection and make the data available to you via FTP or a custom webpage.
Creating a WiFi hotspot enables you to connect to your station through your mobile phone so long as you are in range. The Quick Fire comes with a built-in CR300 which has a WiFi option available, making this an economical choice for real-time, at-a-glance measurements.
If your site has cellular reception, you may prefer the cell modem option which allows for remote connections. Using the 4G Mini, you can be set up for remote connections. This option allows us to set up cell phone or email alerts based on measurement parameters.
If you have networks of stations in close proximity and they're all capturing data, you may want to consider radio communications. All data can be routed to one central hub, and there is a built in radio option in our CR300.
In addition, each station can be completely customized to capture the data you need. Systems can be configured to:
