Telemetry Solution Sends Rainfall Intensity Data Online

Frog RX Rain Gauge Data Logger Sends Data over GSM/GPRS


Smart SDI-12 output tipping bucket rain gauge

Chesterland OH, USA  –  CAS DataLoggers has just provided the hydrometric monitoring solution for a meteorologist manning a weather station measuring local rainfall intensity over the summer.

To get more accurate rainfall data for flood warnings and weather predictions he needed an environmental datalogger to connect to his smart SDI-12 output tipping bucket rain gauges.

Previously he had been looking at a combination datalogger and sensor but that product lacked a way to remotely send data directly to his desktop. Continue reading

Temp Monitors & Supply Chain Management

ShockWatch’s full spectrum of temperature monitors


ShockWatch Seafood Monitor

Dallas TX, USA  –  ShockWatch products provide the tools that enable users to acquire the right information to make the right decisions.

To address this market, ShockWatch offers monitors that let you see inside your entire cold chain.

The key to successful cold chain management is information. You always need to know if hot or cold temperatures have compromised your product’s integrity.

But you don’t always need the same level of technology to find out. Continue reading

Taking the Temperature of the Earth: CFP

GC: Challenges and Applications Across All Earth Surface Domains

Please consider submitting an abstract for this Global Environmental Change (GC) session

Please be aware – abstract deadline is 6 August 2014.
Pasadena CA, USA  –  Announcing the second session dedicated to Earth surface temperatures at the 2014 Fall American Geophysical Union meeting on 15-19 December 2014 in San Francisco, California.

Description: Surface temperature (ST) is a critical variable for studying the energy and water balances of the Earth surface, and monitoring the effects of climate change.

The EarthTemp network was established in 2012 to stimulate new international collaboration in measuring ST across different domains of the Earth’s surface: air, land, sea, lakes, ice.

This EarthTemp session is focused on: Continue reading

Field verification of on-line hydrocarbon dew point measurements

A White Paper

transportable analyzer
Online — This white paper on Mitchell Instrument’s website takes an unbiased look at the reasons for carrying out field verifications of hydrocarbon dew point measurements, and the benefits of each of the currently available options.

Hydrocarbon Dew-Point (HCDP) temperature is a critical parameter in determining the quality of natural gas.

High levels of heavy hydrocarbons in natural gas present possible safety issues and may cause damage to pipeline transmission systems and jeopardize operation of gas turbines. Continue reading
