Wiring an RM Young Sonic Anemometer to a LI-COR EC System

Wiring an RM Young Sonic Anemometer to a LI-COR EC System

The RM Young 81000 sonic anemometer is one of the many sonic anemometers that can be used with a LI-COR EC system. Since the RM Young provides a junction box, wiring it to the LI-7550 is straight forward. The Analog Input/output cable (Part Number 392-10109) provided with the LI-7550 spare parts kit can be used instead of the Auxiliary Sensor Interface Unit. You can wire the bare lead ends directly to the junction box of the RM Young 81000 and…

It’s Pyranometer Calibration Season

It’s Pyranometer Calibration Season

LI-COR encourages our customers to return their LI-200/R Pyranometer Sensors for recalibration (suggested every 2 years after field deployment) between the months of March and September. Why? Because pyranometer sensors need to be calibrated outdoors in natural sunlight in order to construct an accurate relationship between the output of each sensor and incoming solar radiation. During LI-COR’s 40+ years of manufacturing and calibrating pyranometers, we have found that best results are obtained during the summer months when sensors can be…

Troubleshooting RS-232 Connectivity Issues for LI-COR Analyzers

Troubleshooting RS-232 Connectivity Issues for LI-COR Analyzers

Many LI-COR gas analyzers feature RS-232 communication ports, and sometimes these are the only communication channels available between the gas analyzer and a computer. Many new computers don’t have built-in serial ports, so USB-to-serial adapters are needed to facilitate this communication process. Communication problems between gas analyzer and windows interface software can happen due to issues with the USB to serial adapter or due to the lack of compatibility between the instrument firmware version and the windows interface software version. Terminal…

Discontinuation of Factory Service for the LI-800 CO2 Gas Analyzer

Discontinuation of Factory Service for the LI-800 CO2 Gas Analyzer

LI-COR Biosciences has a long tradition of designing and manufacturing robust field instrumentation with long operational lifetimes, and a reputation for honest, open communication with their customers. It is in this spirit of communication and respect for our customers that we are sending this notification. The LI-800 CO2 Gas Analyzer has been an enduring product, even after its discontinuation in 2002. At the time of the discontinuation of the LI-800, we introduced an improved, drop-in replacement model, the LI-820 CO2 Gas Analyzer,…
