When connecting an Airmar WeatherStation Instrument to a PC and run Airmar's WeatherCaster software, this USB Converter provides a plug-and-play interface. The WeatherStation unit attaches to the Converter via a plug-in cable and a 1.8m (6’) USB lead, which then outputs data to the PC. The Converter also includes a 1.8 m (6’) power cord for supplying 12VDC power to the USB box and connected WeatherStation instrument.

Monitoring the weather isn’t just important for producing forecasts on TV news. It’s key to managing a whole host of other things, like expensive livestock, commercial fishing operations and even in the success of military warfare.
The folks at Airmar Technology Corporation know this firsthand, as weather monitoring products they make have been integral to the good outcomes of many projects over the years. Their current lineup of weather stations is full of high-quality sensors that deliver results, including the 110WX , 150WX and 200WX Ultrasonic WeatherStation Instruments.
These three options all boast the ability to gather basic weather parameters, but are ideally suited for different projects.Read More
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission ’s Inland Fisheries Division has been working to restore brook trout in the state. Coldwater research coordinator Jacob Rash, who works with the brook trout team technicians on this project, spoke to EM about the work.
“In North Carolina, brook trout are our only native trout species,” explains Mr. Rash. “With that come biological and ecological considerations as well as cultural importance. A lot of folks here grew up fishing for brook trout with their relatives, so it's an important species that we work to try to conserve. We've done quite a bit of work to figure out where those brook trout populations are and what they are, in terms of genetics.Read More
Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates.
Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing.
EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.Read More
