Overview

The CS106, manufactured by Vaisala, measures barometric pressure for the range of 500 to 1100 hPa (mBar). This range equates to from below sea level (as in a mine) to over 15,000 feet above sea level. Designed for use in environmental applications, the CS106 is compatible with most Campbell Scientific dataloggers.


Benefits and Features

  • Optimized to mount in Campbell Scientific enclosures

  • Integral switching circuit limits power consumption to measurement cycle

  • Three-year warranty


Detailed Description

The CS106 uses Vaisala’s BAROCAP silicon capacitive sensor to measure barometric pressure. It is encased in a plastic shell (ABS/PC blend) fitted with an intake valve for pressure equilibration.

The CS106 outputs a linear signal of 0 to 2.5 Vdc, which allows the barometer to be directly connected to a Campbell Scientific datalogger. An internal switching circuit allows the datalogger to power the CS106 only during measurement, which reduces power consumption.
