    Die notwendige Elektronik ist in einer wetterfesten "Safebox" von Bachmann gekapselt. Für eine dauerhafte Aufstellung sind professionellere Gehäuse zu verwenden, jedoch für diese Demonstrationsstation standen die leichte Handhabbarkeit und der einfache Zugang zum System im Vordergrund.

    Die Safebox enthält die folgenden Komponenten

    • Ende des Stromkabels mit einer 3-fach Steckerleiste
    • professioneller GPRS-Router inklusive einer flatrate SIM Karte für geringes Datenvolumen und eine externe Antenne
    • Bifferboard-basierender Meteoplug-Client (als Dual-USB Version)
