Along with these products Lufft offers a variety of other climatic sensors for use in any environmental condition.
Two years ago, Lufft introduced the WS series of compact ultrasonic weather stations. The VENTUS model is ideal for wind turbine control applications and other instances where precise measurement of wind speed and direction is required in cold climates. The model includes a 200W heater for use in cold weather climates and covered design with heated roof. Lufft USA is offering a demonstration unit free for six months to anyone interested in testing this product in field applications. WS200-WS600 and VENTUS wind sensor models are designed with different levels of functionality to meet specific weather monitoring applications.

The sensor data can be polled wirelessly through the UMB (Universal Measurement Bus) system.UMB is new technology for recording environmental data. Free firmware updates and data transfer over RS232, RS485 or CDMA modem. All UMB sensors can be polled by means of a standard protocol. To request more information contact sales@lufftusa.com
