WS100 Radar Precipitation Sensor / Smart Disdrometer

Geonor, Inc - Precision Instrumentation

Overview

Lufft WS100The Lufft WS100 is our rain sensor with radar technology and adjustable heating. Using a 24-GHz Doppler radar, it measures the speed of all forms of condensed water. These include rain, freezing rain, hail, snow and sleet.

The low-energy sensor detects precipitation from the first drop. Its possible uses are nearly unlimited. Whether in hydrology and water management, agricultural and environmental science, building automation, meteorology or airport and traffic control: the rain gauge measures rain almost anywhere in the world.

 

Key Features

Absolutely maintenance-free and low-energy 24-hour operation

  • Maintenance-free operation through ingenious technology without any moving parts
  • Energy-saving sensor thanks to the improved ECO mode (0.4 VA)
  • Extended heating capacity allows operation in summer as well as in winter
  • Improved heating power with lower power consumption: Sensor heating integrated directly on the dome wall, power consumption with 9 VA heating.
  • Very long service life and high operational reliability due to high quality components

Every second counts: Precise precipitation measurement from the first drop

  • Extremely fast measurement from the first raindrop
  • Detection of precipitation and rainfall (rain, freezing rain, hail, snow and sleet)
  • Detection of drop size (0.3 to 5 mm)
  • Differentiation between 11 classifications of drop sizes
  • Sensor provides rain intensity with higher resolution starting from 0.01 mm
  • Improved measurement accuracy thanks to patented self-developed radar module

Precision sensor with radar technology designed for all industrial needs

  • Precipitation sensor with radar technology: 24GHz Doppler radar
  • Applications: weather critical operations and operation ffficiency – traffic, rail, renewables, building management, air quality
