Vaisala Mobile Detector MD30

MD30 monitors road conditions and transmits weather data — surface surface state, grip, relative humidity, dew point and road and air temperature — from snow plows or any vehicle without disruption and works well as a standalone sensor or to help fill in data between stationary weather stations.

Features
Built Tough: Designed for snow plows and molded to withstand heavy vibration and prevent water ingress. The patent-pending hood protects the lens from snow and road spray and easily removes for cleaning.
Surface Temperature is only part of the story: MD30 transmits real-time data on grip and road state, layer thicknesses of water/ice/snow, road and air temperature, relative humidity, frost and dew point.
Simple and Affordable: Compact size enables easy installation with many options, and the affordability enables wide-scale fleet deployments.
Solid Technology Foundation: Features the third generation of Vaisala’s market-leading DSC laser technology and benefits from Vaisala’s experience in industry-leading weather measurement.
Data Visualization: Leverage live data and imagery to support treatment actions.

Key Benefits

Robust Durability
Compact and purpose-built to transmit data from snow plows. Molded to withstand continuous vibration while preventing water ingress, the sensor’s design ensures reliable road weather data in challenging weather conditions on all vehicle types.
Cost Effective
MD30 provides valuable measurements in a small but robust mobile package. The compact all-in-one design is cost-effective to equip large fleets, utilizing the full potential of vehicles as data collection platforms.
Complementary Data
Supervisors are concerned about their entire road network, but without mobile sensors, it’s difficult to know how roads are impacted between weather stations. The MD30’s quick response time and high sensitivity allow for reliable mobile road condition measurement that augments weather station data.
