The Extech VPC300 is a unique particle counter with built-in camera for capturing videos and photos that are stored in the internal memory or a microSD card.
The Extech VPC300 features a color TFT LCD display, a 74MB internal data storage bank, a micro-SD memory card slot for capturing images and videos for viewing on a PC, and a built-in 320x240 pixel camera for capturing stills/video of test locations. It offers quick and accurate readings for particle count, air temperature, most surface temperatures, and relative humidity. Additionally, it offers a dew point and wet bulb temperature calculation geared for energy efficiency and environmental protection applications. The included PC software enables report generations based on recorded data, images, and videos.
The convenient keystroke menu structure allows for measurements, setup, and other programming. Images can be saved to a PC in JPEG format, and videos in 3GP format. The meter stores up to 5000 records with date and time stamp, as well as 20 minutes of video. A micro-SD memory card slot hosts 8GB maximum memory cards for additional storage space. Selectable sample time, count data, and programmable delay can all be adjusted and viewed using the keypad for navigation. A tripod mount is included for continuous recording. The meter is NIST calibrated for complete assurance.

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
