In harsh weather conditions and in saline environments, such as on ships, buoys, and other marine environments, the connectors are the biggest challenge to corrosion protection. Vaisala recommends that you protect all connectors, especially threads and open screw joints, with protective grease.
Use a non-conductive, non-water-soluble, non-silicone-based grease to protect the instrument against rust and corrosion. Using grease in joints also helps with opening them in the future.
|CAUTION Do not open any connectors unless the product manual allows you to do so.
|CAUTION Do not touch any sensitive parts when applying grease.
