Introducing WS Line of Ultrasonic Compact Weather Stations by Lufft

From the WS product family of professional intelligent measurement transducers with digital interface for environmental applications. VENTUS ideal for most wind applications as it is available with a 200W heater ideal for cold climates.

The WS series of compact weather stations are unrivaled in price to performance ratio. WS200-WS600 and VENTUS models are designed with different levels of functionality to meet your specific weather monitoring needs. The top-of-the-range model, WS600-UMB, measures temperature, humidity, precipitation, air pressure, wind direction and wind speed. The robust VENTUS model is ideal for wind turbine applications as it includes a 200W heater for use in cold weather climates. All models are covered to protect from the elements.

The UMB (Universal Measurement Bus) system is new technology for recording environmental data. Free firmware updates and data transfer over RS232, RS485 or GPRS modem. All UMB sensors can be polled by means of a standard protocol. Once data polling has been incorporated for one sensor, additional sensors can be added by way of easy parameterization of the data polling system. Channel-oriented sensor data polling delivers a large number of computed variables in metric and US format. Sensors can be configured, equipment tested and firmware updated with the free configuration software (UMB- ConfigTool) In addition Lufft offers a variety of software packages from data retrieval from weather stations (COLLECTOR) to web visualization (SmartView3).

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
