The new water depth sensor with SDI-12 communication protocol from Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) – which the company is officially launching at this year’s Meteorological Technology World Expo – is the latest addition to its range of highly-accurate barometers and advanced water depth sensors and suite of pressure calibration equipment.
Other products on show include economic solutions for barometric measurement for second-tier weather stations; a portable transfer standard barometer for on-site calibration checking; and a low-power device suitable for extended battery life in remote applications.
Due to the rise in the number of extreme weather events, the need for accurate barometer readings in some of the world’s most remote and varied environments has never been higher. Since last year’s expo in Madrid, Spain, several high-accuracy manufacturers have designed and integrated BHGE’s products into their weather stations.
BHGE will use this year’s expo to continue to promote its range of pressure sensors and instruments, which have been designed to operate in the most hostile of environments. - July 2017
