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.

Caring for the Chesapeake: Supporting the Iconic Bay Starts with Good Monitoring Data

The Chesapeake Bay is enormous: the Bay and its tidal tributaries have 11,684 miles of shoreline—more than the entire U.S. west coast. It is the largest of more than 100 estuaries in the United States and the third largest in the world. The Bay itself is about 200 miles long, stretching from Havre de Grace, Maryland, to Virginia Beach, Virginia. But the Chesapeake Bay isn’t just enormous--it’s enormously important. The  Chesapeake Bay Program  reports that its watershed covers about 64,000 square miles and is home to more than 18 million people, 10 million of which live along or near the Bay’s shores.

Treating Harmful Algal Blooms: A Natural Progression

Some of us happen upon the subject of our life’s work by accident, some of us are born into it, and some of us ease into it over time. For Tom Johengen, Research Scientist for Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) and Director of Michigan Sea Grant , choosing to study Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) was “a natural progression” from his days as a grad student investigating best management practices for controlling nonpoint source nutrient pollution. “I’ve been the research scientist with CIGLR since my postdoc in 1991, 31 years, and I’ve been the Director of Michigan Sea Grant for the past 3 years. When I began my postdoc with CIGLR we were just starting to study the impacts of the recently invaded zebra mussels.

The Coevolutionary Arms Race: Fungus-Growing Ants and Social Parasites

Despite the negative stereotypes surrounding social parasites, Rachelle Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, knows just how important host-parasite relationships are to evolution. Like many ecologists, Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, found her passion for nature in childhood. “It began when I was a kid. I had this general interest of nature, and I loved to spend time in the forest, exploring,” she recalls. Her desire to work with wildlife was solidified in college. “I didn’t know exactly what direction I was going to head in but the ecology and evolution classes I took were really central to shifting my perspective on ‘what is biology.’ It opened my eyes to seeing nature in a different way,” she explains.
