Dear Reader,

We are continuously enhancing our Meteo-40 data loggers and our online monitoring platform AmmonitOR to make measurement campaigns for you as convenient as possible. Each new release comes with new features, e.g., to apply new sensors in a campaign or to speed up processes. Today Meteo-40 and AmmonitOR offer a very wide range of possibilities - too many for those who have too much going on in their heads to take notice of every tiny option. There is one thing that knows all about Meteo-40 and AmmonitOR: our manuals :-)

PDF, ebook or online help, we offer different platforms for our manuals. So you can decide where you check for the answers to your questions. The online versions are available in the AmmonitOR and Meteo-40 web interface - or download the PDF and EPUB files from our website.

Measurement campaigns can be very complex. More and more data is needed to accurately calculate the energy yield at the selected site. We designed Meteo-40 and AmmonitOR to perform even very complex campaigns smoothly and conveniently.

As the heart of a measurement campaign, Meteo-40 is compatible to various sensors as well as other external devices such as modems and modules. The list of sensors and devices is long - meanwhile very long and still growing. Also the feature list is huge. Do not get confused about this, just consult the Meteo-40 help: online via the Meteo-40 web interface or download the PDF/EPUB file from our website. The answer to your question is just one click away.

The more measurement campaigns you manage, the more time-consuming becomes the monitoring. AmmonitOR is our solution to conveniently run a number of measurement campaigns - even with different systems, i.e., wind met masts, solar met stations, LiDAR and SoDAR devices. Have a look in the AmmonitOR help to become familiar with the possibilities of our online monitoring platform.



All functions and features of Meteo-40 and AmmonitOR are described in our manuals, which can be accessed via web interface or downloaded from our website. As soon as a new Meteo-40 firmware or AmmonitOR version is released, we update the manual. In doing so, you always have the latest version available.

Our online help is context-sensitive, i.e., content related to the selected menu item is shown. For example, you want to connect a modem to your Meteo-40 measurement system. You find the configuration just by clicking on the Help item and the connection plan showing the wiring is only two further clicks away. Another example, you want to receive regular PDF reports of your campaigns. Our AmmonitOR manual explains how you can quickly configure the report and which options you have - just by clicking on the Help item.

Have a look at the table of contents to find out more. Screenshots and images in the manuals help to better understand certain configurations and evaluations.

If measurement data gets manipulated or stolen, it might cause fatal consequences for the planned wind or solar power plant referring to faulty energy yield calculations or ROI forecasts. Data security is crucial and cannot be ignored today. The MEASNET site assessment guideline already highlights data quality focussing on data authenticity and integrity. Thus measurement data has to be transparent and traceable from recording to data processing.

We implemented the OpenPGP standard to encrypt and sign data utilizing public key cryptography on our Meteo-40 data loggers and AmmonitOR.

With a Digital Signature you ensure authenticity and integrity of data. A valid digital signature indicates that the data was created by a known sender and was not manipulated on transit. To ensure that only authorized persons can read your data, you can encrypt data. The generated ciphertext can only be decrypted by the authorized recipient.

Simply by consulting our manual, you can learn how you can easily digitally sign and/or encrypt your data. Protecting data can be very easy.
