Lufft WS401 Multi-Parameter Weather Sensor
The Lufft WS401 Multi-Parameter Weather Sensor simultaneously measures air temperature, humidity, pressure & precipitation in a compact platform with ventilated housing.
- Integrated tipping bucket allows a 0.2mm or a 0.5mm resolution of rainfall
- 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 WS401 Multi-Parameter Weather Sensor offers 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.
Air Temperature & Humidity
Temperature is measured using a highly accurate NTC-resistor, while humidity is measured using a capacitive humidity sensor. Both sensors are located in a ventilated radiation shield to reduce the effects of solar radiation.
Absolute air pressure is measured using a built-in MEMS sensor. The relative air pressure referenced to sea level is calculated using the barometric formula with the aid of the local altitude, which is user-configurable on the equipment.
Precipitation is measured using an integrated tipping bucket rain gauge. The flexible tipping bucket can be configured for 0.2mm or 0.5mm rainfall resolution.
