Vaisala’s cloud-based monitoring system enters North American market

The cloud-based system enables top-of the-line humidity and temperature trend monitoring, bringing extended benefits for its users regarding long-term investment and implementation time.

Vaisala, a global leader in weather, environmental, and industrial measurements, announced today the availability of its latest cloud-based measurement system, the Vaisala Jade Smart Cloud, in the North American market.

“We are delighted to have the Jade Smart Cloud available for our North American customers as this new system can bring operational cost savings and convenience to their business. It enables better decision-making based on accurate world-class humidity and temperature measurement data,” says Gerald Ducharme, Vice President of Vaisala’s Industrial Measurements in the Americas.

Trend measurement to count on
The Jade Smart Cloud solution is designed for professionals who want to access high-quality measurement data anywhere, at any time. All data is safely stored in the cloud and easily accessed remotely through a mobile device, such as a mobile phone or a tablet, as well as on a PC or a laptop.

Online measurement trend monitoring enables better decisions which translate to saving money and time.This wireless monitoring service is ideal for museums and other public buildings, concrete moisture measurement on construction sites, water restoration from water damage sites, data centerscleanroomslivestock facilities, and laboratories.

“Measuring the trend gives a better understanding of the process conditions. For example, when installing flooring, it's important to get the data from the drying process and know the accurate humidity level of the concrete base before placing the next layer. Basing the decisions on the reliable trend data can have a huge impact on the success of the project. Ultimately, it can lead to extensive cost savings,” comments Yani Bettencourt, heading Vaisala’s Industrial Instruments sales team in the Americas.

“With Jade Smart Cloud, humidity in floor surfacing applications can be monitored remotely from boreholes in the subfloor, rather than only from the surface. This can make a crucial difference on the actual humidity value and post-flooring results. Which value would you trust more in your project?”

The same technology that works on Mars
The Jade Smart Cloud uses the same world-leading in-house developed measurement technology that was sent to Mars onboard Nasa’s Perseverance rover in July.

“The same humidity sensors have been operating on Mars since 2012, and now they were sent there again. It’s safe to say that as the humidity sensors work on Mars, they will work in your application on Earth as well,” Ducharme concludes.

Vaisala introduced Jade Smart Cloud system to the European Economic Area earlier this year, and it will be available in the United States and Canada during the last quarter of 2020.
