The Vantage Vue® wireless Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) collects outside weather data and sends the data wirelessly to a Vantage Vue console via a low-power radio. The ISS is solar powered and includes a battery back-up.
The Vantage Vue ISS contains a rain collector, temperature/humidity sensor, anemometer, and wind vane. The temperature/humidity sensor is mounted in a passive radiation shield to minimize the impact of solar radiation on sensor readings. The anemometer measures wind speed, and the wind vane measures wind direction.
The Sensor Interface Module (SIM) is housed within the ISS and comprises the “brains” of the Vantage Vue system and the radio transmitter. The SIM collects outside weather data from the ISS sensors and transmits that data to your Vantage Vue console.
The fully-integrated, corrosion-proof sensor suite is built to take all the weather your location can give. The smaller profile sensor suite is designed to minimize visual impact in your yard or on your roof.
Frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio ensures consistent transmission up to 1,000' (300M) from integrated sensor suite to console.
Self-emptying tipping spoon measures rain with .01" (0,2 mm) resolution.
Vantage Vue records wind speeds as low as 2 mph (3 km/h) and as high as 180 mph (290 km/h).
Weather Proof Cover
Corrosion-resistant cover provides durability in extreme conditions. Electronics are potted or over-molded for added moisture shielding.
Provides excellent protection from solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat.
Provides outside temperature readings from -40°F to 150°F (-40°C to 65°C). Also measures relative humidity from 0 to 100%.
Installs easily and quickly with included mounting hardware kit.
Measures wind direction in compass points or degrees.
Energizes the station during the day. On-board super capacitor provides power at night. Lithium battery provides backup when needed.
Allows for more accurate installation and better data collection.
In The News
Since 2003 harmful bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) levels have created a health risk to recreational users in Boulder Creek. Boulder Creek has been designated as an impaired stream and is not meeting an EPA health-based water quality standard.
Concentrations of E. coli increase from the mouth of Boulder Canyon to the University of Colorado-Boulder and beyond based upon data collected by the City of Boulder according to information published by the CU Independent and the Boulder Camera . EM spoke to environmental engineer Art Hirsch of the Boulder Waterkeeper , who is advocating for greater accountability from all entities that own property abutting the stream.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Māno a , in collaboration with other partners, recently deployed a new ocean acidification (OA) monitoring site in Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary , American Samoa. Derek Manzello , a coral ecologist with NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Florida, is the lead PI of ACCRETE: the Acidification, Climate and Coral Reef Ecosystems Team at AOML. Dr. Manzello connected with EM about the deployment.
“ACCRETE encompasses multiple projects that all aim to better understand the response of coral reef ecosystems to climate change and/or ocean acidification,” explains Dr.Read More
Around the world, extreme wave heights and ocean winds are increasing. The greatest increase is happening in the Southern Ocean, according to recent research from the University of Melbourne , and Dr. Ian Young corresponded with EM about what inspired the work.
“Our main interest is ocean waves, and we are interested in wind because it generates waves,” explains Dr. Young. “Ocean waves are important for the design of coastal and offshore structures, the erosion of beaches and coastal flooding, and the safety of shipping.”
Waves also have a role in determining how much heat, energy and gas can be trapped in the ocean.
“The major reason why changes in wave height may be important is because of sea level rise,” details Dr. Young.Read More
