Lufft USA Working with Campbell Scientific to Provide Turn-Key solution for Wind and Weather Measure

Lufft WS intelligent weather stations and anemometers now available with SDI-12 protocol for increased flexibility

Santa Barbara, CA, UNITED STATES, May 14, 2010 – LUFFT USA of Santa Barbara, CA recently announced that it's in-house manufactured WS' line of weather stations (including the economical WS200 ultrasonic anemometer) are now available with built in SDI-12 communication protocol. LUFFT WS weather stations and anemometers are now plug and play with any SDI-12 ready datalogger. Lufft intelligent sensors and anemometers still have the same notable increased functionality of a digital intelligent sensor, now with increased flexibility.


Campbell Scientific is a brand of datalogger that is widely used throughout the wind and environmental industries. Campbell Scientific dataloggers can be programmed to collect and transmit data from the WS series weather station by Lufft. Campbell will sell Lufft sensors to customers upon request. LUFFT USA offers LUFFT sensors with a Campbell Scientific datalogger as a new turnkey wind and weather assessment package. Lufft sensors are available with optional heating depending on the power requirements at a site.

Intelligent wind sensing technology by Lufft USA is a reliable maintenance free way to measure the wind and weather. The WS series of compact intelligent weather sensors (WS200-WS600) along with VENTUS and V200A models, are designed with different parameters of measurement 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.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
