Transmission Line Monitoring

​​Transmission lines carry electricity above 110 kV across long distances, while distribution lines gradually lower the voltage so that it can be used by consumers. These lines carry power across country borders and throughout our neighborhoods so that we can turn the lights on at night. We don’t think about it until the power goes out, but the same lines that carry power to our house are directly affected by weather conditions every day. From lightning to wind and ice, or even excessive heat, power companies need reliable weather data to efficiently manage their operations. Vaisala understands the impact weather has on the power grid, offering solutions and decision support for grid operators.


DSC111 Remote Surface Condition Sensor

DSC111 Remote Surface Condition Sensor

Provides an accurate reading of surface conditions, including water, ice and snow amounts and a high resolution value for grip level. Pole mounted roadside set-up eliminates the disruption caused by slot-cutting, making installation and maintenance relatively easy. Can be used as a stand alone system on bridge decks, in remote locations or as part of an existing ROSA weather station.


DST111 Remote Surface Temperature Sensor

DST111 Remote Surface Temperature Sensor

Measures surface temperature via emitted infrared radiation. Pole mounted roadside set-up eliminates the disruption caused by slot-cutting, making installation and maintenance relatively easy. Can be used as a stand alone system on bridge decks, in remote locations or as part of an existing ROSA weather station.
