MD30 surface state calibration involves 2 separate adjustments, preceded by cleaning the surface state sensor. The steps are:

  1. Cleaning
  2. Plate reference
  3. Dry road reference

This calibrates the surface state sensor.

1
Surface state sensor
2
Surface temperature sensor MT10
3
Air temperature and humidity sensor HMP113
MD30 calibration is a 3-step process. Make sure that you complete all the steps before starting to use MD30 for the first time.

When using multiple ports, note that reference setting:

  • Can be initiated from any port.
  • Cannot be started if there is reference setting ongoing, regardless of the port.
  • Can be stopped from any port, regardless of the port from which it was started.

The following gives an overview of the calibration process and messaging. For detailed calibration steps and instructions, see Vaisala Mobile Detector MD30 Setup Guide.
