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.

Digital Mayfly Data Logger Sensor Stations Monitoring Watersheds

For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed. “ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.

Solar and Wind-Powered, Algae Tracking Boat Trialed in Florida

Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat. "This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.

CICHAZ Biological Field Station Provides A Unique Educational and Research Experience in Mexico’s Huasteca Region

The story of the Centro de Investigaciones Científicas de las Huastecas "Aguazarca" (CICHAZ) Biological Field Station, a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), starts with Dr. Gil Rosenthal, Professor of Biology and Chair of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Texas A & M University . Rosenthal has worked in the Huasteca region of Mexico since 1994 and for years kept his research equipment at a local ranch/hotel with the dream of one day having a field station where he could run experiments with collaborators and students. Since 2005, Rosenthal has been the Co-Director of the field station along with his wife, Dr.
