Vaisala WXT532 Wind Sensor

Flexibility
The Vaisala 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. Select the transmitter with the needed parameter(s) for specific weather applications, with a large variety of digital communication modes and a 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, the Weather Transmitter WXT530 turns 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 a 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.

Not So Quiet Polar Night: Arctic Creatures Found to be Active During Dark Part of the Year

Most people need little more than a comfortable pillow, a blanket, and a dark room to drift off into a multi-hour snooze. Many researchers assumed that once plunged into darkness for about half the year during the polar night, most polar creatures would do the same: fall asleep and take a big nap for as long as the darkness lasted. But Jon Cohen, associate professor of marine sciences, school of marine science and policy, in the College of Earth, Ocean, and the Environment at the University of Delaware, wondered if that was true. Despite the technical challenges of monitoring biota in very low light conditions, Cohen and his team were determined to find out if krill, copepods, and other creatures were dozing off in the dark or seeking out prey, light, and each other.

Orange Stream Dreams: Monitoring Acid Mine Drainage and Watershed Health

Not many young people pondering careers come up with the words “acid mine drainage.” But Jen Bowman, Director of Environmental Programs at the Voinovich School at Ohio University, could not help but be fascinated by what she saw during her days as an Ohio University student collecting field samples. “My interest in acid mine drainage, and how it affects watersheds, goes way back to my undergraduate days,” she explains. “We saw firsthand how streams could be impacted by drainage from abandoned mines. Sometimes streams had such severe problems they turned orange. It was hard not to be struck by that. I was drawn in to the many associated challenges, keeping watersheds clean, and improving stream health.
