Observator Instruments Pty Ltd
Observator Instruments Pty Ltd specializes in sensor devices for the Meteorological and Hydrological industries. They are an Australian manufacturer of their own products, as well as a distributor of other world-class products, but mainly add value by offering customized systems and monitoring solutions.
Observator Instruments (Australia) has long been regarded as the world’s top manufacturer of turbidity sensors, tipping bucket rain gauges, and heavy-duty SYNCROTRAC anemometry and Wind-Alarm System Applications. Our history in the development and manufacture of ANALITE turbidity probes is over 25 years and our expertise in the design and development of RIMCO rain gauges is now over 40 years.
Observator Instruments, was the first company to offer a truly ISO7027 compliant turbidity probe with mechanical lens wiping for long term field deployment. To date, we have manufactured over 60000 turbidity probes with wiping and we supply to major international companies on a regular OEM basis.
Observator Instruments Pty Ltd is also the Australasian Distributor for GILL Instruments (UK) ultrasonic anemometers.
As a developer and manufacturer of turnkey environmental monitoring solutions, Observator Australia has Metal Fabrication, Precision Machining, and Electronic Assembly capabilities under one roof and is well positioned to quickly meet customised requirements.
Of recent times Observator Instruments Pty Ltd, had become involved in the design and manufacture of complete data collection and telemetry platforms. These have mainly involved either the use of the ANALITE turbidity probes, the RIMCO rain gauges, Wind-Alarms solutions or GILL Instruments (UK) ultrasonic anemometers.
Observator Instruments Pty Ltd offers the same products and system solutions with a new emphasis on value-added solutions that include all of the OBSERVATOR suites of solutions.

Synchrotac SYN706-NMEA Series Heavy Duty Wind Speed and Direction Transmitter designed for general meteorological applications where accuracy, durability and long-term reliability are required even in severe climatic conditions.
Synchrotac SYN706 Series Heavy Duty Wind Speed and Direction Transmitter designed for general meteorological applications where accuracy, durability and long-term reliability are required even in severe climatic conditions.
The Synchrotac 710 Series of wind speed and direction sensors are designed for general-purpose wind measuring applications.
They are constructed from corrosion resistant materials and incorporate precision sealed stainless steel bearings for reliability and low starting threshold.
The sensors can be individually mounted directly to a pipe mast with a ½ inch BSP male thread or as a pair on the optional cross arm or mounting sickle.
The SYN-96Dx1 WindDisplays are a combined wind speed and direction indicator designed to interface directly to the Gill WindSonic and WindObserver range of ultrasonic anemometers (when configured for NMEA output) as well as many other NMEA compliant wind speed and direction sensors.
SYN-THB-HS is the most accurate combined instrument mounted inside three double louvered naturally aspirated radiation shields. This is resulting in high-response time for each measurement.
The popular and often used wind sensor OMC-160 is a combined wind speed and direction sensor, based on the cup and vane principle. Having chosen for the highest quality stainless steel materials and internal non-contact measuring devices, this sensor stands for a long life time, having the highest accuracies within both the low range as well as the high range wind speeds.
The OMC-150 is an Intrinsically Safe combined wind speed and direction sensor, based on the cup and vane principle. A complete wind set consists besides this sensor of an Eex junction box which is placed nearby the sensor OMC-156, and a Zener barrier interface box OMC-158-2.
Marine meteorological observations require devices designed to withstand the hardest environmental conditions such as heavy vibrations, sea spray, extremes of temperature, chemical particles etc. Observator has an exceptional track record in the world-wide supply of meteorological sensors to the marine and offshore markets.
Simple SD Logger
Access SD card data from the OMC-045-III when used with High Wind Alarmsystems.
WS-15 – LCD Display
OMC-138 – LED Large Display
The OMC-139 is a marine wind display for indication of relative wind speed and direction.
Wherever you need to visualize your critical measurement information on a dedicated instrument the OMC-140 can be used.
A Meteorological or HydroMeteorological station, normally consists of a set of sensors, depending on the required parameters and a central (conditioning, translator, data logger) unit. In high-demanding markets, each of the sensors has its own specific location and required accuracy.
The IoT-GATEWAY is a multifunctional data collection, control and telemetry system that employs the ultra-low power Windows-embedded operating system.
Observator’s MET-LINK is a wireless interface for the Gill Maximet line of weather sensors. This new development allows the user to pair the Gill Maximet’s weather sensor parameters to a useful and full-featured tablet and phone application.
The ANALITE NEP-9500 series of analogue output turbidity probes are designed for monitoring and process applications where turbidity levels of up to 3,000NTU may be encountered.
NEP-5000-LINK is a wireless interface for the new NEP-5000 family of ANALITE Turbidity sensors. This new development allows the user to take field measurements and log the data directly to an Android phone or a Tablet.
The ANALITE NEP-5000 ISO7027 90°series of digital turbidity probes are designed for monitoring and process applications where ultimate sensor flexibility is a consideration.
The OMC-7006 data-buoy is ideal for environmental monitoring projects. It is specifically designed for the measurement of hydrological parameters in lakes, rivers, estuaries and coastal zones. The OMC-7006 is often used near dredging sites to monitor the impact of the dredging activities.
