Details

The Vaisala WSP150 Surge Protector is a compact transient overvoltage suppressor designed for outdoor use. It can be used with all Vaisala wind and weather instruments.

A lightning strike nearby may induce a high voltage surge, which the integral transient suppressor of the instrument may not tolerate. Therefore, additional protection is needed, especially where frequent and severe thunderstorms are common and where long cables of more than 30m are used. The WSP150 offers three-stage protection against surge currents up to 10 kA entering through the power and signal cables.

The Vaisala WSP150 Surge Protector 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 the earth. The WSP150 also includes noise filtering against HF and RF interference.

Vaisala recommends using the WSP150 when wind and weather instruments are installed on top of high buildings or masts and in open grounds, that is, anywhere with an elevated risk of lightning. Also use the WSP150 if your cable length exceeds 30m or you have unshielded, open-wire lines.

Vaisala WXT520: Weather station designed with monitoring systems in mind

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.

ROVs Sparking Compassion and Curiosity at the Shedd Aquarium

This summer, the team from the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago began pilot programs designed to reach local communities in a new way. Specifically, they ran excursions on both Lake Michigan and the Chicago River using ROVs equipped with underwater cameras and other tools to introduce more land-dwellers to what lies beneath the water. Shedd Aquarium Learning Programs Manager Sadie Norwick and Communications and Public Relations Coordinator Kayley Ciocci spoke to EM about the Shedd's innovative ROV programming for the public. Inspiring conservation with technology Although the pilot programs using the ROVs were new in 2018, the Shedd team is no stranger to using ROVs to educate the public.

TMACOG Program Empowers Teachers to Bring Water Quality to Classrooms

This summer, teachers across northwest Ohio took the time to learn about water quality in Waterville at Farnsworth Metropark. The teachers were training in the Maumee River for the Student Watershed Watch (SWW) program , run by TMACOG. “TMACOG is the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments, Sara Guiher, a water quality planner and SWW coordinator for TMACOG, explains to EM. “We're a regional planning organization and we work with local governments on issues related to stormwater, wastewater, drinking water, and watersheds. This program started in 1989, and it’s one of our longest running programs.” The program was designed to foster stewardship through the sampling process.
