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.

Coe College Wilderness Field Station Features Education, ARUs and Avian Research

If someone speaks to Jesse Ellis, Assistant Professor of Biology at Coe College and Director of the Wilderness Field Station, they might get interrupted; by a blue-headed vireo. “Bird songs are a big part of data gathering for research here,” says Ellis. “We use automated recording units (ARUs) to record wilderness sounds, especially sounds made by birds and frogs.” The Wilderness Field Station is a teaching-oriented facility. “In addition to our annual summer classes, we also conduct bird studies here including bird counts in transects, and researchers from other colleges come here to do multiple lake samplings,” Ellis adds.

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.
