EXTREMELY ROBUST SENSOR TO DETERMINE SNOW DRIFT INTENSITY
The sensing part of the instrument is a cylindrical, anti-abrasion, anti-adhesion and anti-rime coated tube supported by two strong stainless steel arms. The impact of drifting snow and the friction of laminar wind induce a change in internal acoustic pressure. The excitation by snow and wind is discriminated by a specific acoustic, mechanical and electronic design.
It features continuous or pulse analog voltage outputs and supports SDI-12 communication, serial RS-232, and Modbus RTU RS485 (using an optional adapter). The full configuration of the sensor can be customized at any time with a Plug-and-Play PC connection or remotely, using serial commands.
