Data Loggers and Collision Reduction on UK Roads.

Richard Paul Russell Ltd are proud to supply R-P-R designed  SpaceLogger .S10 dataloggers to Westcotec Ltd., for vehicle speed and time datalogging in their Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS). Westcotec are  specialists in the design, manufacture & installations of Vehicle VAS and other speed and warning signs seen in the UK and overseas.

The Transport for London TfL ‘Effectiveness of Speed Indicator Devices (SID or VAS) on reducing vehicle speeds in London’ ( LK Walter and J Knowles ) and the research results ‘the link between vehicle speed and the frequency of injury collisions’ ( Taylor et al 2000). Suggests that a 5.6% reduction in collisions might be expected on the section of road where SID is influencing drivers’ speed choice.

Reduction in collisions in the UK is good to see. Take care out there folks.

BBC Countryfile – Keswick. Wind measurement by Lake District hilltop assessors .

UPDATE  BBC CountryFile.

Last month Richard Paul Russell Ltd were asked to provide live Wind& Weather Data via one of our FlexiMetGSM Weather Stations. Located at the first ever BBC CountryFile Live event 2016 at Blenheim Palace. Full Live Wind and Weather data viewed via our was available to the 125+thousand visitors on internet enabled mobile phone, tablet, PC or laptops.


Countryfile is a wonderful program covering all aspects of the great outdoors. This week we saw Ellie Harrison climbing to great heights on Helvellyn with the hilltop assessors looking a weather predictions. The Lake District is a beautiful part of England but in the winter great consideration must be taken of the prevailing weather conditions. During the program we saw the Lake District hilltop assessor using a Kestrel 2000 for his measurement of temperature, wind speed and direction.

The Kestrel 2000 thermo-anemometer provides high quality, performance and functionality. Temperature and wind chill functionality make it a must have device for skiers, snowboarders, climbers and any outdoor enthusiast. It has three buttons below the display, making operation simple and allowing the user to view data in current, maximum and average wind speed displays, temperature and wind chill displays and also the data hold function.

Winter – Wind Chill Temperatures

Wind Speeds at our Lymington site registered over 60 knots at times over the last few days Brrrr!

Have a look at how the wind speed affects how cold you feel :

Richard Paul Russell Ltd

Winter is setting in, with Sub-Zero temperatures yesterday morning in the New Forest National Park,  ice scrapers were deployed to clear car windscreens (and bicycle seats) for the staff journeys to the Richard Paul Russell Ltd design and manufacturing sites in Lymington and Milford on Sea. With higher winds expected again this weekend, the chilling effects of wind needs to be monitored.

All Kestrel Weather Meters (except the Kestrel 1000) are thermo-anemometers and allow Wind Chill to be calculated and displayed.

Wind Chill becomes a hazard when heat is drawn away from the skin faster than the body can replace it. This may lead to frostbite or worse.

The chilling effect of the wind, a combination of wind speed and temperature, can be represented by the lower temperature that would be required to produce the same chilling sensation for a person walking in calm conditions. Wind Chill indicates to the user how their environment really…

Richard Paul Russell Ltd Partner with Business and Industry Today Magazine

Richard Paul Russell Ltd

Richard Paul Russell Ltd are proud to announce a partnership with Business and Industry Today Magazine aimed at promoting the benefits of the Kestrel 4300 Construction Weather Meter for those involved in concrete placement.

Weather and its consequences can be very expensive to contractors with professionals often relying on weather and forecast data from weather stations many miles from the actual construction site. Richard Paul Russell Ltd the official UK distributor for Kestrel Weather Meters launches the Kestrel 4300 Construction Weather Meter, aimed at the concrete industry. It delivers highly accurate current weather data and predicts future weather conditions with an automatic evaporation rate calculation to predict plastic shrinkage crack and surface crusting conditions.

The kestrel 4300 is compact and hand-held weighing only a few grams.They report wind speed, temperature and relative humidity. The 4300 uses the temperature of the concrete (which you input) and calculates the rate of evaporation of surface moisture, letting…
