Flexibility
The WXT530 is a series of weather instruments that provides six of the most important weather parameters, which are air pressure, temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind speed and direction through various combinations. You can select the transmitter with the needed parameter(s) into your weather application, with a large variety of digital communication modes and wide range of voltages. There is a heated option available. Low power consumption enables solar panel applications. The Vaisala WXT530 Series focuses on maintenance-free operations in a cost effective manner.

Integration
The series offers analog input options for additional third party analog sensors. With the help of the built in analog to digital converters, you can turn the Weather Transmitter WXT530 into a small, cost effective weather parameter hub. Additional parameters include the solar radiation and external temperature sensor. Further, the analog mA output option for wind speed and direction enables wide variety of industrial applications. The WXT530 exceeds IEC60945 maritime standard.

Solid Performance
The WXT530 Series has a unique Vaisala solid state sensor technology. To measure wind the ultrasonic Vaisala WINDCAP Sensors are applied to determine horizontal wind speed and direction. Barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity measurements are combined in the PTU module using capacitive measurement for each parameter. This module is easy to change without any contact with the sensors. The precipitation measurement is based on the unique acoustic Vaisala RAINCAP Sensor without flooding, clogging, wetting, and evaporation losses.

Monitoring Buoy Supports Nautical Archaeology

For as long as humans have inhabited Europe’s Atlantic coast, the ocean has been a great source of wonder and mystery. History is full of fascinating tales of epic endeavors, new discoveries of fearless explorers, fishing communities inextricably linked to the bounties of the sea, cultural interactions both peaceful and not, and voyages that went awry during monumental storms or simply due to bad luck. In the south of Spain, at the boundary between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, one such tale involves a long-lost merchant ship that went undiscovered from the 16th century until 1984. Believed to be carrying valuable goods from Italy, it sank just across from Gibraltar in the Algeciras Bay at a point called La Ballenera.

Staying Within Budget: Carbon Planning

While we usually concern ourselves with budgeting money or time, we should be thinking about another type of budget: the carbon budget. The carbon budget refers to the amount of carbon exchange, especially carbon dioxide, allotted on an annual basis to prevent the earth from reaching an increase of 2-degrees Celsius all over the globe. If a 2 degree increase does occur, global warming effects are expected to be catastrophic and irreversible. In order to know how close we are to reaching the carbon budget, an extensive knowledge of types of carbon input and their magnitudes, as well as their fluctuations over time, is needed.

IoT for Smarter Aquaculture

With aquaculture booming, IoT may be the future of the market. Fish have been farmed for millennia but only recently has the industry achieved such a vast scale. As overexploitation and climate change threaten wild fish stocks, aquaculture is increasingly framed as an alternative that can provide a low-carbon, healthy protein source. But, as the global population grows, the industry has the monumental task of meeting the increasing demand for seafood. In order to provide higher yields economically and sustainably, it is turning to the Internet of Things, or IoT. IoT refers to technology that pulls data from smart sensors to the Cloud and crunches it using analytic software tools, including artificial intelligence (AI), to monitor and improve efficiency or productivity.
