Vaisala WXT536 Multi-Parameter Weather Sensor
The Vaisala WXT536 is a multi-parameter weather sensor that simultaneously measures air temperature, humidity, pressure, rainfall and wind in a compact platform with optional heating.
- Low power consumption is ideal for battery powered systems
- No moving parts for durability and long maintenance intervals
- Easy integration with 3rd party data collection platforms
The Vaisala WXT536 is a multi-parameter weather sensor that simultaneously measures air temperature, humidity, pressure, rainfall and wind in a compact platform with optional heating. Low power consumption enables solar panel applications. The Vaisala WXT530 Series focuses on maintenance-free operations in a cost-effective manner.
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.
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 contacting the sensors. The precipitation measurement is based on the unique acoustic Vaisala RAINCAP Sensor without flooding, clogging, wetting, and evaporation losses.
