DBX2 Series Features – Digital Barograph

The DBX series features consist of a simple to use, low-cost, highly reliable early warning system for detecting low pressure storm systems approaching. Showing a clear one day and a one week weather time barograph image on a well back-lit digital display. The DBX2 digital barometer is a stand-alone unit and requires NO connection to the outside world. The DBX2 barograph is both battery or a/c powered! Each unit is fully tested and calibrated and includes a NIST Test Certificate. See the DBX2 Series Screen Details page and Support page for more information. General applications include: Meteorology, Marine World, Research, the Mining Industry, Cleanrooms, Oil Platforms and Refineries, Laboratories, Medical and Health Related Fields.

Even the best barometer shows only the current pressure, nothing more. Knowing the pressure is like knowing the Dow Jones average for any given moment: we really need to know which way it is heading, and how fast. The DBX2 is a precision digital barometer with graphing, also know as a barograph. Barographs are recording barometers. (1) The DBX2 precision digital barometer displays a (1) day graph and a (1) week graph, making weather changes easy to observe. The DBX2 also shows a trend indicator (up, steady, or down) and the rate of change ( steady, slow, medium, or fast). And since changes in pressure generally precede new weather, the DBX2 precision digital barometer can help us “see” what’s coming.

As an example, rising pressure most often indicates clearing and cooler, where as falling pressure usually points to warmer, more cloudy, and possible precipitation. A rapidly falling pressure is almost always accompanied by a storm with high wind conditions. And a rapidly rising pressure is almost always accompanied by higher winds and clearing conditions. An unchanging pressure means continuing conditions and little wind. The crest or trough of a pressure curve most often indicates a change of wind direction. See the graphs and their meanings on the Screen Details page! The DBX2 monitors these changes for you and indicates warnings when necessary!

With these forecasting tips you can use the DBX2 precision digital barometer as your first line of defense against oncoming weather.
