The next generation of climate solutions is here, with Emerson Climate Technology (ECT) poised to launch its first-ever weather-based product this fall.
The company announced its latest product, Emerson Weather+, a sensor that is “revolutionizing the way you understand weather,” in a statement.ECT is a weather sensor that “has the ability to predict, monitor, and monitor how rain, snow, and cold water will impact our environment.”
The company said the sensor is designed to be “consistent and accurate in real-time weather conditions,” which will allow the company to better anticipate how events are changing in the future.ECT’s Weather+ sensor is based on a “high-performance computer chip with state-of-the-art algorithms,” according to the company’s announcement.
It has been developed by Emerson Research’s Technology & Applications division, which is based in New Jersey.
The Weather+ will reportedly be able to “identify and predict the relative moisture, temperature, wind speed, and humidity of a specific location in real time,” according the company.
The sensor will reportedly measure “the total moisture content of the air and determine the extent of precipitation or snowfall in realtime, while remaining consistent with the cloud cover.”ECT will reportedly sell its product “for up to 1,000 times more than comparable products currently available,” according Emerson’s announcement, noting that its Weather+ sensors will be available “in different configurations to meet your exact weather requirements.”
Ect has already been involved in the climate-focused world for years, having helped the company launch a water-based sensor in 2018 called WATERS, which was designed to help businesses predict rainfall and snowfall based on the amount of water in the atmosphere.
Emerson Climate is also working on a weather-focused device called ETC’s Weather+, which will be able “detect changes in the wind and weather at the individual, geographic and temporal scales of your environment.”
The Weather+, product description also noted that ECT “is an industry leader in the development of sensor-based sensors that are compatible with existing products and are designed to enable a more integrated and accurate forecast of weather.”
Emerson noted that the Weather+ “has already been proven in real world conditions and will be a powerful tool for businesses and other organizations in the near future.”
Emerson said its weather-driven products will also be available to “the public and governments.”
The Weather+ is expected to go on sale in the fall.
