Overview

The BaroVUE™10 is a highly accurate barometer that can measure pressures over a range of 500 to 1100 hPa and can be used in a range of applications that includes meteorology and hydrology. This sensor includes our zero downtime recalibration. Other sensors on the market need to be taken offline and sent back to the manufacturer to be recalibrated, often for weeks at a time, causing a loss in valuable data and time, as well as an additional expense. 

The sensor card for the BaroVUE™10 is pre-calibrated. Replacement sensor cards are also pre-calibrated, requiring only one trip to the field station and no downtime. The design of the BaroVUE™10 allows you to remove and replace your sensor card quickly and easily without either having to disassemble the equipment in the enclosure or having to send the equipment back to the manufacturer.

Technical Description

The BaroVUE™10 is a low-power, digital barometer (-40 to +60°C) that provides best-in-class accuracy and stability (±0.1 hPa/yr) over the entire pressure and temperature range. It can run continuously and does not require power cycling unlike other products in this category. The digital output is both SDI-12 and RS-232, which reduces noise and measurement uncertainty compared with analog sensors, and makes the BaroVUE™10 compatible with all Campbell Scientific SDI-12 devices. Moreover, this barometric pressure sensor can be installed and integrated into many new and existing weather stations. The transducers used in the BaroVUE™10 are direct-to-digital sensors, and no reconversion takes place inside the barometer.

BaroVue10 Program Example (1 KB) 07-07-2021

Description: Includes a CR1000X program that uses the C1! SDI-12 command to retrieve data. The program will adjust the barometric pressure measurement to sea level. The adjustment is entered as a constant, Elevation_m, in the beginning of the program. Initially, the Elevation_m value is 1382; change this value to your site elevation, in meters.

FAQs for

Number of FAQs related to BaroVUE10: 2

  1. The calibration sheet supplied with your BaroVUE™10 applies to the sensor card (BVC10). The serial number on the outside of the unit refers to the serial number of the BaroVUE10 main board. To confirm you have the correct calibration sheet, please open the device and check the serial number on the BVC10 sensor card itself.

  2. A CS106 Barometric Pressure Sensor can be added to the station. However, the sensor needs to be wired into the wiring terminal inside the enclosure, and the data logger program needs to be edited to include the instructions to poll the sensor and store the values.

    Note: Some versions of the ET107 station that are interfaced with irrigation companies may have proprietary programs or complicated programs that are not easily changed.
