The PS24 consists of a 24 Ah battery, CH150 regulator, and a 10 by 12 in. environmental enclosure. This power supply is intended for systems such as the ET107 where the weather station's enclosure is not large enough to house a BP24 battery. See the Images section on the web page for an image of the battery that is included.Read More
The PS24 enclosure has one 1.5 in. diameter conduit for cable entry and several options for mounting it on a tripod or tower. The sealed rechargeable battery should be recharged via an ac wall charger or a solar panel. The wall charger and solar panel are ordered separately as common accessories.
A 3.05 m (10.0 ft) cable is included that goes from the PS24 to a data logger or a device that needs 12V/Ground from the PS24.

Look for a stamp on top of the battery. The stamp may be in a date format of YYMMDDXX where:
This indicates the age of the battery.
Not quite. The PS24 consists of a 24 Ah battery, a CH100 regulator, and a 10 by 12 in. environmental enclosure. Aside from the enclosure, the PS24 is very similar to a BP24 combined with a CH100.
The BP24 consists of a 24 Ah battery and a cable, along with a mounting bracket that can attach the battery to the diamond-punched backplates in Campbell Scientific enclosures.
The BP24 with a CH100 and a 10 in. by 12 in. enclosure with special mounting brackets is equivalent to a PS24.
The PS24 includes the BP24, a 10 in. by 12 in. enclosure, voltage regulator (CH100), back panel, mounting bracket and strap, and a longer power cable—all in one. The PS24 may be a suitable option when installing the battery in a separate enclosure because the data logger’s enclosure is not large enough to house the battery. The PS24 is often used with the ET107 when a larger battery is required.
