The Solar Flux provides the following information: Solar radiation. The NGC Weather Station and Solar Flux are meteorological monitoring options. They provide graphical representation of the various collected parameters such as bargraph for temperature, dew point, humidity, barometer, solar flux; animated widgets for the wind speed and direction as well as text. These values represent the environmental parameters for the earth station. These options require the optional NGC-AESC to be connected to the NGC ODU so no extra cable is required.
