  • Compact, light-weight
  • Low power consumption
  • mA output suitable for industrial applications
  • Cost effective


Flexibility

The 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. You can select the transmitter with the needed parameter(s) into your weather application, with a large variety of digital communication modes and 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, you can turn the Weather Transmitter WXT530 into a small, cost effective weather parameter hub. Additional parameters include the solar radiation and external temperature sensor. Further, the analog mA output for wind speed and direction enables 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.
