Environmental to my mind covers your cases of a weather station and radio monitor well, but what about a resolver (rotation ADC) on a motor, or a 3 phase power meter? The issue is that environment carries a lot of baggage as a term.
The industrial bit came from an early LKML discussion and has really just been a working name ever since.
