Using USRP2 outdoors in winter in Boston (lowest operating temperature)


We will be doing some outdoor data collection with our USRP2 board.
We’re located in Boston, so these days in December the typical daily
maximum temperature is between +20 and +35 degrees Fahrenheit. We would
need about 4-6 hours outside to do the data collection. Can we operate
the USRP2 boards at these temperatures? What is the lowest operating
temperature for the USRP2 boards?

Commercial-grade electronics parts are usually rated for operation down
to -40C. What you’ll
have to watch out for is condensation, if you’re getting temperatures
hovering around
the freezing point.

It goes without saying that you’ll need to protect the box from the
elements–rain, etc.
