Lufft WS100 Radar Precipitation Sensor
The Lufft WS100 radar precipitation sensor accurately measures rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, and hail using a 24 GHz Doppler radar.
- 24GHz Doppler radar measures precipitation drop speed and calculates quantity & type
- Easily mounts to 2" diameter pipe with integrated bracket mount & U-bolts
- SDI-12 output for integration with NexSens and other data loggers
The Lufft family of multi-parameter weather sensors offer a cost-effective, compact alternative for the acquisition of a variety of measurement parameters on land- and buoy-based weather stations. Depending on the model, each sensor will measure a different combination of weather parameters to meet a wide variety of applications. The Lufft WS100 radar precipitation sensor accurately measures rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, and hail.
Tried and tested radar technology is used to measure precipitation. The precipitation sensor works with a 24GHz Doppler radar, which measures the drop speed and calculates precipitation quantity and type by correlating drop size and speed.
