Remote Surface State Sensor DSC211

Improve ground transportation efficiency and traffic safety with reliable road sensors from Vaisala.

    Reliable Remote Measurements

    Around the world, ground transportation organizations are benefiting from Vaisala’s next-generation rugged and non-invasive road condition sensors.

    The DSC211 Remote Surface State Sensor is easy to install and lets you avoid cost and complexity. It keeps operations running safely and smoothly, with 24/7 road intelligence in all weather conditions, and empowers your decision-making with accurate, reliable data.

    Combined usage of the DST111 Remote Surface Temperature Sensor and the DSC211 provides a complete assessment of weather conditions, and these sensors can be easily integrated with existing weather systems, such as Vaisala’s Road Weather Station.


    Proven Safe & Effective

    The DSC211 uses proven laser technology to identify water, ice, slush, snow, and frost, and it determines grip, even when there’s heavy traffic.

    In addition, it provides early warnings when ice crystals are present. This sensor provides an effective remote alternative to measuring road conditions, keeping your personnel safer and protecting drivers.


    Advantages of Remote Sensors

    Remote sensors offer several advantages over embedded sensors:

    • Versatile, with non-invasive installation
    • Sensitivity for early detection of ice crystals before they impact traction
    • Easy-to-read grip data
    • No damage from premature pavement failure, overlays, snowplows, or pooling
    • Optimized maintenance with help of lens dirt indication

    And, with automatic calibration and highly resilient designs, the sensors require little or no maintenance — unlike traditional sensors.
