Vaisala CA10 Cloud Access Point is a wireless device used to connect CWL100 data loggers to the Vaisala Jade Smart Cloud service. It allows users to manage the data loggers from the cloud interface. Data is encrypted during transfer to ensure security against eavesdropping, tampering, and transfer errors. When purchased, Vaisala CA10 access points and CWL100 data loggers are automatically linked to a specific cloud account, eliminating the need for user pairing. The CA10 always needs power and an internet connection to work.


Key Benefits

Data integrity

Data is encrypted during LoRa transfers to protect against eavesdropping, data tampering, and transfer errors.

Time synchronization
CA10 automatically synchronizes with Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers over the Internet.

If a data logger has a connection problem, it will automatically connect to another available nearby access point in the system. At least two access points with free capacity are needed for failover to function.
