Sensors for measuring the environment – indoor and outdoor, including temperature, humidity, air pressure, CO2, wind, rainfall, water quality, gases
Used for atmospheric environmental quality monitoring are generally large-scale analytical instruments. The equipment is cumbersome and expensive, which is not conducive to the wide deployment of monitoring points, thus restricting the effective monitoring and treatment of the atmospheric environment.
The main applications of wind sensor are in the field of meteorology and industrial applications such as in wind turbine business or high-rise crane safety monitoring.
Rain gauge is a meteorological instrument for determining the depth of precipitation (usually in mm) that occurs over a unit area (usually 1m2) and thus measuring rainfall amount.
Air Quality Sensors and equipment traditionally used for atmospheric environmental quality monitoring are generally large-scale analytical instruments.
Illuminance sensor for solar radiation measurement is widely used for shortwave radiation measurement in agricultural, ecological, and hydrological weather, and optimizing photovoltaic systems.
Level sensor or water level switches detect the level of liquids, other fluids and fluidized solids, including slurries, granular materials, and powders that exhibit an upper free surface.
Sensors that detect soil conditions have become an important tool for modern farmers in crop production. The benefits of soil sensor are obvious.
An automated version of the traditional weather station, either to save human labour or to enable measurements from remote areas.
Humidity sensors are best where measured humidity is > 10%RH. For low humidity, or low & high temperatures.
Wind Sensors are specially designed to accurately and reliably measure wind velocity and a visual indication of wind direction under the adverse environmental conditions.
In meteorology, air pressure and its changes relate to low and high-pressure fronts and their movements. A rapid drop in air pressure indicates an approaching storm or rain front, while increasing pressure brings the promise of clearer skies and sunshine.
Vaisala’s carbon dioxide instruments are suited to a wide range of applications from fermentation and fruit storages to safety and ventilation control.
