Details

The Vaisala WSP152 Surge Protector is a compact transient overvoltage suppressor designed for the protection of the USB connection of a PC connected to the Vaisala WXT520 or WMT52. The WSP152 is designed to protect the host PC against surges entering through the USB port. For example, a nearby lightning strike may induce a high-voltage surge, which is not tolerated by the protection of the USB cable or the port itself. Therefore, additional protection is needed, especially where frequent and severe thunderstorms are common and where long cables of more than 30m are used. Please note that the USB connection of a PC is for indoor use only.

The Vaisala WSP152 Surge Protector offers three-stage protection against surge currents up to 10 kA that may enter through the USB cable or the port. The WSP152 has four channels, two of which are dedicated to power lines and two for data lines. Each channel uses a three-stage protection scheme as follows: first there are discharge tubes, then voltage dependent resistors (VDR), and finally transient zener diodes. Between each stage, there are either series inductors or resistors. Both differential and common mode protection is provided for each channel: across the wire pairs, against the operating voltage ground, and against earth. The WSP152 also includes noise filtering against HF and RF interference.

Vaisala recommends using the WSP152 when USB cables are used for permanent connections. The surge protector is always recommended when there is an elevated risk of lightning strike.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
