Today we're going to be assembling 350 watt solar panel brackets. Before we get started, here are the things that are included: three solar panels (150 watts a piece), eleven brackets total, three hardware bags, and  instructions. You'll need your own tools and U-bracket, U-bolt brackets,  screws and nuts for mounting this to a pole. Loosely assemble the brackets that are going onto the pole in which you'll be mounting the solar panels. To do that, you take each of the angle brackets and put them on the end of...

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...
