Case Study: Real-time Weather, Metrological Insight and Rainfall Monitoring with Vaisala Equipment

Major UK Organisation

60 Second Sample Rate

~24hr Setup Time

We worked closely with the business to understand what their water treatment facility needed from us and how we could provide the most impact. 

Together with the customer, we deployed real-time remote monitoring alongside alert notifications via SMS, Email and Microsoft Team. This meant that preventative maintenance could be achieved seamlessly for the business.

Ensuring customers can choose their own hardware based on specific requirements is a core part of the Hark ethos and in this case, the customer and the Hark team identified the Vaisala WXT530 device. The WXT530 series is a unique collection of cost-effective sensors that accurately and reliably measure weather conditions. They can capture any combination of wind, rain, temperature, and barometric readings in a compact, affordable package.


How to connect a Vaisala WXT530 to the cloud?

“Using hardware like the Vaisala WXT530 we've been able to really help the client increase visibility of key operational data. By unlocking and analysing this data, the client has been empowered to really enhance the efficiency of their operations.”
