The Model 5410 StormLink® RWIS is the heart of standards based, open architecture NTCIP-compliant Road Weather Information System (RWIS) Environmental Sensor Station (ESS), designed for deployment in new or existing RWIS stations.

The StormLink RWIS is a datalogger utilizing the latest in data acquisition technology to provide a robust and open architecture platform. At the core of the StormLink RWIS is a Campbell Scientific, Inc. CR1000X datalogger. CSI’s dataloggers are known for their reliability and accuracy in harsh conditions and have been deployed all over the world in thousands of applications including NTCIP compliant road weather stations. HSE has harnessed this technology and packaged the system specifically for the road weather community.

The first requirement HSE has when developing the RWIS datalogger is its NTCIP compliance to the latest standards. The RWIS datalogger adheres to the standards set up by NEMA for ESS stations NTCIP 1204 v3.

The StormLink RWIS is a compact unit that can be vertically mounted on a back panel of an equipment cabinet or rack mounted in a standard 19 inch rack using only 2U space. Sensor connections are provided using tool-less connectors with more than the required inputs to support the proposed sensor package.

A website is made available from the StormLink RWIS with its Ethernet and IP over USB interfaces for system setup, configuration, diagnostics and data viewing. This allows the customer to make any changes or updates over a network connection to the datalogger or locally at the station. A two port Ethernet switch is integrated into the datalogger allowing connection to a communication device and another device such as a camera or the IceSight non-intrusive road condition sensor.

All sensor inputs and outputs are protected against voltage surge with self resetting devices. This insures that if a surge does exist, the system will recover, if possible, decreasing maintenance visits to the site. The system is a low power device that is suitable for solar power applications.

The StormLink RWIS is typically housed in a NEMA rated enclosure or ITS traffic cabinet with all sensor connection routed and terminated at the datalogger.
