AutoMet 580

Our AutoMet 580 Collection Platform is a complete data logger with front panel display which accepts input from any Met One standard sensors, AutoMet sensors and Met One digital serial sensors. Featuring Ethernet and MODBUS connectivity, the AutoMet output is compatible with our COMET, Air Plus and WeatherView Software.


As always, Met One Instruments, Inc. provides your AutoMet based weather stations pre-wired, preprogrammed and pre-tested at no extra charge to get your site up and running faster.


  • Powerful connectivity: Ethernet, MODBUS, 12 analog outputs, USB, RS-232C, RS-485
  • Statistical calculations: Avg, min, max, delta, STD DEV, dewpoint & more
  • Matched pyranometer inputs: For global horizontal & plane of array measurements
  • PT-100 platinum temperature inputs:For ultra-accurate and wide range temperature measurements.
