Today, we're going to show you how to set up an automated noise monitoring system out of the case in just a few minutes. Our enclosure has our noise monitoring system inside. Slip that on the tripod with the brackets and tighten them. Take the solar panel and slip it on the back of the tripod and tighten. Adjust the angle of your solar panel to about 30 degrees and point it south. Put the weatherproof microphone on top of the tripod. You want it to be around four to...

Today we're going to show you how to set up our Sonitus Automated Noise Monitoring System using one of our many types of tripods. This version is our most portable tripod in one piece. Tighten the bottom, extend the panel and tighten again. Now we have our tripod in place. Charge the 10-day battery pack. It can be charged overnight, taking about five hours on AC power that plugs into the wall. Inside the case, you have your class one sound level monitor microphone with a weatherproof windshield. Thread the...

Today we're going to show you how to calibrate your Sonitus Sound Level Monitor. Log into Sonitus Cloud. This is an automated calibration. The monitor will do it by itself. We just have to put our calibrator on top of the microphone. Take off the windshield on the microphone and place our calibrator firmly on the microphone top. Make sure it's all the way in. Press the button, making sure that we're on 94 decibels. You can be at 94 or 114. Leave that on for a minute while going...

Today, we're introducing you to our automated Vaisala Ultrasonic Weather Station, which provides weather data such as temperature, humidity, pressure, wind speed, direction, and rainfall. There are no moving parts, and it's very easy to service with the Vaisala on top. We have it connected to our WASP Datalogger that sends data automatically to our Eagle AO Data Management System online. You can look at all of your data there from the weather station. It uses a very small 3-watt solar panel. Since it is very compact, it could be...

Today we’re demonstrating how to replace a PM module in the Aeroqual Dust Sentry or AQS 1 Monitors.   Removing the Module Once you identify the module to be removed, you’ll need to raise the inlet out of the module. To do so, take off the cyclone and TSP heads. Just unscrew the top and wedge out the components using your hands and/or a small screwdriver. Once those are loose, you can see that the inlet is now free for the module. Next you want to remove all of the cables. Undo...

  Today we're demonstrating how to calibrate your BSWA Sound Level Meter with your Aeroqual Dust Sentry and a CAL200 half-inch calibrator. You can use any half-inch standard microphone field calibrator. The first thing that you want to do is remove the windscreen from the microphone assembly. Look for the upper seam in the windscreen assembly and unscrew the top of the windscreen to reveal the microphone. Place the calibrator onto the top of the microphone. Once the calibrator is in place, press the backlight button on the BSWA handheld. Then...

Today we’re demonstrating how to assemble a 24 Volt lithium iron phosphate battery solar kit with the Delta Link and a simulated solar panel on a benchtop power supply. Installing the Batteries The first thing we're going to do is take our power extension cables out so we can install our batteries. Take the two batteries and place them in the solar kit. The ends with the numbers two and three go in towards the back, and the end with the connector should be towards the front. Make sure to line up...

Today, we're going do a quick overview of the slope monitoring system using load sensing nodes. Equipment (from top to bottom) Vaisala all-in-one weather station - this measures precipitation, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, and direction. Solar panel – this is used to power the weather station. On/Off Switch - behind the solar panel is an on/off switch to disconnect the battery. Cables - there are 2 cables, one that plugs into the solar panel and another cable (on the other side) to power the instrument – it plugs into...

Today we’ll take a look at how to connect to a Delta Link over a local Wi-Fi connection. This is one of two main ways to connect to your Delta Link, the other being through the web portal (which we cover in a separate video/blog). Power up your Delta Link and connect the Wi-Fi antenna. On your computer (or our phone – whichever you are using), you should see the Delta Link Management pop up and then the serial number of your Delta Link as a Wi-Fi network. To connect...

Hey guys. Mick from Specto Technology here. Today I'm going to show you how to change the filters on your Dust Sentry Pro. Your Dust Sentry Pro has two filters - a sample filter (labeled DQ) and a purge filter (labeled BQ). To change the filters: Pull the filter out from the cassette. Remove the filter from the connectors – just pull them out of the connectors. Attach the new filter into the connectors, making sure the arrow is pointing to the top so that you have the right flow...
