  • Thin-film Measurement Technology for Building Automation Industry

    The Heating Ventilation and Air-condition (HVAC) market in the Building Automation industry focuses on controlling atmospheric conditions to make them more suitable. Among the conditions controlled by these systems are temperature and humidity. aIST’s thin film platinum and nickel temperature sensors are ideal for heat meter monitoring and control applications in HVAC because of their high resolution and long term accuracy. Additionally, IST’s thin film capacitive humidity sensors are ideal for controlling the relative humidity of an environment due to their rapid response times and accuracy over time. Thermal mass flow sensors also have applications in the HVAC industry as an indicator of duct airflow

  • Prescribed Burning

    A general understanding of the separate and combined effects of several weather elements on fire behavior is needed to plan and execute a good prescribed burn. Because weather and fuel factors interact, an experienced prescribed burner can conduct a successful burn even with one or more factors slightly outside the desired rangeā€”as long as they are offset by other factors. Accurate fire weather monitoring of fire danger indices via the RAWS network, providing historical data leading up to a prescribed burn is critical in the planning stages. However, having accurate weather conditions in a micro-climate scale in real time during the execution of a prescribed burn is just as critical. The weather variables most applicable to prescription burns are air temperature, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed and precipitation. A combination of wind speed, relative humidity, temperature, and solar insulation largely determines fuel condition which in turn affects fire behavior.
