The YOUNG 05501 Intrinsically Safe Wind Monitor is a high performance wind sensor approved for use in hazardous areas. The RM Young 05501 Wind Monitor-IS can safely be used in Class 1, Division 1, Group A, B, C, and D hazardous areas.

Data Output
Internal circuitry converts signals for wind speed and wind direction into separate, 4 to 20 mA current outputs. This configuration is especially suited for long cable runs or for industrial settings where noise immunity is important.

The wind speed sensor is a four-blade propeller that drives a reliable, non-contacting magnet/coil transducer; slip rings and brushes are not used. The wind direction sensor is a durable molded vane. The vane angle is sensed by a precision, long-life potentiometer housed in a sealed chamber.

The instrument is constructed of UV stabilized plastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum fittings. Precision grade, stainless steel ball bearings are used. Circuitry and cable terminations are in a convenient junction box on the instrument base.

The instrument is installed on a standard 1-inch pipe. A mounting orientation ring assures correct alignment of the wind direction reference when the instrument is removed for maintenance.

Village Green Project builds air quality awareness with monitoring park bench

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is on a mission to make air quality monitoring cheaper, easier and more accessible through the implementation of innovative new monitoring stations. The Village Green Project is a new initiative from the EPA that seeks to increase the scope of air quality monitoring by seamlessly incorporating monitoring devices into community settings. Led by Gayle Hagler, an environmental engineer at the EPA Office of Research and Development, an EPA design team has constructed a prototype that combines the ability to monitor ozone and fine particulate matter as well as wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity all into the functional design of a park bench.

NASA develops ocean surface wind speed measurements through GPS

Researchers from the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., have discovered that GPS signals can be used to accurately measure wind speed at the ocean’s surface, National Geographic has reported. Researchers have concluded that by measuring the distortion in GPS signals bouncing off the ocean’s waves, they can successfully measure wind speed, even in the case of hurricanes and extreme weather. To measure the accuracy of using GPS for wind measurements, NASA scientists placed GPS receivers on NOAA research planes. They concluded that GPS data has an accuracy capable of detecting wind speeds within 11 miles per hour.

UNC's industry-standard water quality profiling platforms get upgrade

The University of North Carolina Institute Of Marine Sciences has a history with profiling platforms. UNC engineers and scientists have been building the research floaters for 10 years in a lab run by in Rick Luettich, director of the institute. UNC scientists and engineers developed their own autonomous vertical profilers to take water quality readings throughout the water column.  They have three profilers  placed in the New and Neuse rivers. The profilers are designed to drop a payload of sensors to an allotted depth at set time intervals. Instruments attached take readings continuously on the way down and up. Data collected by the profilers has been used to study water related issues such as infectious disease and sediment suspension.
