Exciting Times! After much testing and calibration of our new GSM weather station dubbed the 'Twister Aviator' has gone into production. Boasting wind speed sensing of within 0.7 km/h (4-120 km/h) using dual magnets and hall effect transducer, ceramic bearings for low wind speed startups and a 3D magnetometer wind direction sensor of within 2 compass degrees.

This is apart from the usual incorporated digital temperature, humidity, barometer and rain gauge sensors. And don't forget our optional colour camera!

As if this was not enough, all the previous cone weather stations are capable of been upgraded to the Twister version.

Testing in Action!

See us testing live. Getting absolute calibration is key here. We were able to get within 0.7 km/h accuracy between 4 and 120 km/h.

New product development & enhancement of the iWeathar station, taking things to new heights!

At the beginning of this month we started the testing process outside Oudtshoorn using our in-house custom testing vehicle equipment and calibrated sensors on our new version of weather station dubbed the ‘Twister Aviator’.

Focusing on the aviation sector for higher accuracy and implementation of a 3D magnetometer, the wind direction sensor boasts contactless sensing between 1-2 compass degrees and added installed ceramic bearings for lighter wind start-up speeds and dual magnet hall effect setup for speed accuracy of increments of as little as 0.7 km/h.

The City of Cape Town says its emergency services and external agencies are on standby to deal with any potential impact from the predicted adverse weather conditions. Heavy rain is expected in the Cape Metro, with the Weather Service warning of localised flooding. Chantel Alexander is from the City's Disaster Risk Management:

“The SA Weather Service has advised that a cold front will make landfall tonight, bringing rainfall, but also strong north-westerly winds along the coast, reaching speeds of between 45 and 60 km/h. Rough and choppy sea conditions are predicted too. Residents are urged to please exercise caution and to contact the City's Public Emergency Communication Centre in the event of an emergency.”

Our Story

iWeathar was established in 2006 by the owner Russell Troy Witthuhn, an aspiring Inventor, Electronics and Software Engineer.

The business has grown and evolved into a family business with the assistance and support of his wife, Chantal Witthuhn.

In the past Russell made many attempts inventing and designing a unique commercial product and finally a break-through came with the development of a cost effective internet based weather station.

It has been a slow journey for the Witthuhn’s – determined to establish an international based business, designing a commercially viable product while able to finance the research and development independently.
