Lufft USA adds MODBUS as the next addition to the flexible communication methods available from the line their line intelligent weather stations. Lufft sensors measure wind and weather with unrivaled precision and instrument durability.

LUFFT USA of Santa Barbara, CA announced that the addition of MODBUS to its list of communication standards making it one of the most flexible wind and weather assessment products on the market today. Lufft USA announced that its complete WS' line of weather stations are now available with MODBUS data protocol in addition to SDI12, ASCII, UMB, NMEA and Analog. Lufft presented the WS along with the VENTUS 240W heated ultrasonic anemometer with digital/analog communication at the American Wind Energy Association Exhibition in May, 2010 and will again be at Solar Power International this month in Los Angeles, CA.

MODBUS allows for communication between many devices connected to the same network, for example a system that measures temperature and humidity and communicates the results directly to a computer or programmable logic controller or PLC. MODBUS is often used to connect a supervisory computer, sensor or group of sensors with a remote terminal unit (RTU) in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Sensors that communicate via MODBUS are commonly used in renewable energy, building automation and other industrial processes. Lufft USA believes that the addition of this common method of industrial communication to its list of digital protocols will allow Lufft weather stations to measure climate parameters with nearly any industrial project.
