The sensor uses a silicon capacitive absolute pressure sensor that combines the outstanding elasticity characteristics and mechanical stability of single-crystal silicon with the proven capacitive detection principle. The excellent long-term stability of the barometer minimizes or even removes the need for field adjustment in many applications.
The Vaisala PTB110 Barometer is suitable for a variety of applications, such as environmental pressure monitoring, data buoys, laser interferometers, and in agriculture and hydrology. The compact Vaisala PTB110 is especially ideal for data logger applications as it has low power consumption. Also an external On/Off control is available. This is practical when the supply of electricity is limited.
The PTB110 will reach full accuracy 500ms after a pressure step.

The world’s weather is full of surprises. That makes a quality weather station a valuable piece of technology for monitoring systems.
Vaisala's WXT520 multiparameter weather station is built with monitoring systems in mind. It monitors six weather parameters in real time, so users have the numbers on an unexpected rain storm or turbulent wind event.
It can be a means of understanding weather events that caused a flush of nitrogen into a river or low water levels in a lake. What’s more, with the help of a data logger and telemetry system, it can deliver that information to one’s desk so she can stay dry and keep an eye on the data during a storm.
Three core components make up Vaisala’s WXT520 weather station.Read More
Water quality issues are shifting in the United States’ rivers in big ways.
Those changes are driven, in part, by the way the land in a watershed is used and they’re big enough that researchers may need to change the way they think about water quality in the American rivers.
“What was striking to us was how perceptions of water quality issues from several decades ago may need to be updated,” said Edward Stets, a U S Geological Survey research ecologist, in an email response to questions from Environmental Monitor.
New research by Stets published in Environmental Science &; Technology in March highlights these shifting water quality issues.Read More
The start of Duke University’s oceanographic mooring line doesn’t begin at the surface of the ocean, but 500 meters beneath it. Floating at the top of the mooring system is a 64-inch syntactic sphere with 2,500 Lbs of buoyancy. It serves a duo of roles as both a floatation device and housing for two high-end acoustic monitoring systems.
Next comes 75 meters of chains and wires before coming to two ocean current profilers, one pointing up and the other pointing down. Next to that equipment are two instruments that measure temperature and salinity.
Next comes several hundred more meters of wire before arriving at several glass balls, more floatation orbs.Read More
