Vaisala Launches Jade Smart Cloud System

Vaisala, a global leader in weather, environmental, and industrial measurements, has introduced the new cloud-based Vaisala Jade Smart Cloud system for professionals who want to access high-quality measurement data anywhere, at any time. The data can be viewed on the go; on a mobile device, such as mobile phone or tablet, and on a pc or laptop. The Jade Smart Cloud is ideal for any structural moisture or ambient humidity measurement monitoring needs on the go, because it keeps users updated on critical measurements continuously.

Typical applications for the Vaisala Jade Smart Cloud system are, for example, concrete moisture measurements on construction sites and ambient humidity measurement monitoring in data centers, museums or other public buildings, and livestock production facilities.

“Cloud-based monitoring makes the actual operations more efficient, as time is no longer wasted in setup and pairing of hardware with software, or frequent visits to the various measurement sites,” said Product Manager Lars Stormbom from Vaisala.

In addition to streamlined work, the system brings benefits in terms of providing regular automated software updates without any downloads, and increased collaboration by making it easy to share live or stored data with colleagues and customers. Additionally, the cloud-based system increases data safety and control.

“All measurement data is stored safely in the cloud where it can be viewed through the web browser on mobile devices. Cloud data can be accessed in real-time using a computer or a smart-phone and downloaded for further analyses. All data is stored in a tamper-proof format in the cloud, with a timestamp of the measurement,” said Stormbom.

The system consists of CWL100 Wireless Dataloggers with probes, a CA10 Access Point and the Jade Smart Cloud software license. When measuring concrete moisture, probes can be placed directly inside boreholes, or they can be mounted on the wall.

“There are already more than 100,000 borehole measurements made annually with Vaisala instruments. With the Jade Smart Cloud, we’re providing the same measurements our customers already trust, in a smart new way that just simply makes life easier,” said Stormbom.

Vaisala Jade Smart Cloud uses Vaisala proprietary LoRa-based radio protocol. Data encryption is used end to end, and the data is saved securely in the cloud. Vaisala Jade Smart Cloud will be available in the European Economic Area in June 2020 in Finnish and English.
