An easy and affordable way to get road weather measurements from challenging locations.
The new Vaisala TempCast, part of our Xweather family of subscription based products, is easy to install anywhere — even in places that have previously been challenging, such as on bridges.
Wireless with built-in connectivity and a 3-year battery life, TempCast is an ideal solution for getting additional data in your observation network.
TempCast is a standalone product which does not need a connection to a road weather station. Ready to use out-of-the-box, you can simply attach it to a pole and activate with a mobile app.
There are no cables and no external powering required, and it operates maintenance-free for three years. These features make TempCast ideal for bridge installations, remote locations, cold spots and other difficult locations.
High quality observations are the basis of all high quality forecasts. TempCast measures air temperature, humidity, and surface temperature without touching the pavement. This helps you target treatments, even in remote or otherwise difficult locations, to keep all areas of your roads safe for the travelling public.
TempCast uses Vaisala’s HUMICAP® humidity sensor, which provides reference grade measurements. Forecasting models can also use local observations for validation, learning and self-improvement.
Automatic connection to Vaisala Wx Horizon lets you instantly start improving your winter maintenance operations.
Gain access to visualizations, alerting, and notifications, 72-hour enhanced road weather forecasts and 10-day atmospheric forecasts — no actions or additional subscription needed. Vaisala provides SIM cards and takes care of network monitoring for potential issues.
Customers with their own winter maintenance decision making systems can use the Wx Horizon API to gain access to the data.
There are two TempCast sensors available:
