The ALS-2 Ambient Light Sensor is designed to measure background luminance as part of a Runway Visual Range (RVR) system. Mounted alongside the runway the ambient light sensor is often deployed with a visibility meter to provide the data necessary for calculation of RVR.
Biral BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detector
The BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detector is a standalone sensor that reliably detects the presence of all forms of lightning to a range of 83 km. The unique quasi electrostatic operating principle gives the detector a very low false alarm rate and the ability to warn of the risk of overhead lightning.
The SWS-050 is optimised for use in applications where accurate and reliable visibility measurements are required. The forward scatter measurement principle and unique design ensure the output is both accurate and reliable in all weather conditions.
The SWS-100 is optimised for use in applications where accurate and reliable visibility measurements are required alongside basic present weather measurements. The forward scatter measurement principle and unique design ensure the output is both accurate and reliable in all weather conditions and will not be influenced by local lights sources, even those that flash.
The VPF-750 Visibility and Present Weather sensor is the most advanced in Biral’s product range. Its enhanced performance allows the reporting of freezing precipitation in addition to the weather codes typically available from a forward scatter sensor.
The 014A, manufactured by Met One, is a three-cup anemometer that monitors wind speed for the range of 0 to 45 m/s with a threshold of 0.45 m/s. It connects directly to a Campbell Scientific datalogger, which measures the 014A's pulse signal and converts the signal to engineering units (mph, m/s, knots).
For many applications, the 015ARM Pyranometer Mounting Arm has been replaced by a CM225 Solar Sensor Mounting Stand. The 015ARM is used to attach a pyranometer or quantum sensor to a tripod. Many pyranometers and quantum sensors also require a leveling base that secures the sensor to the 015ARM and levels the sensor.
The 034B, manufactured by Met One, combines a 3-cup anemometer and vane into a single integrated package to measure wind speed and direction. It is cabled for use with our dataloggers, and can provide measurements for a variety of applications.
The 107 is a rugged, accurate probe that measures temperature of air, soil, or water from -35° to +50°C. It easily interfaces with most Campbell Scientific dataloggers and can be used in a variety of applications.
The 108 is a rugged, accurate probe that measures temperature of air, soil, or water from -5° to +95°C. It easily interfaces with most Campbell Scientific dataloggers and can be used in a variety of applications.
The 109 is a rugged, accurate probe for CR200X-series dataloggers that measures air, soil, and water temperature for a variety of applications. It consists of a thermistor encapsulated in an epoxy-filled aluminum housing. The housing protects the thermistor, allowing the 109 to be buried or submerged. The 109 measures from -50° to +70°C.
The 109SS is a rugged, accurate probe that measures soil or water temperature from -40° to +70°C. It is especially suited for harsh, corrosive environments, and can be easily interfaced with our dataloggers.
The 110PV is a thermistor that measures the temperature of a surface by direct contact. It typically monitors the temperature of a photovoltaic module, but can also monitor the temperature of other devices. This thermistor easily interfaces with our dataloggers, and is ideal for solar energy applications.
The 237 measures leaf wetness by determining the electrical resistance on the surface of the sensor (a wet surface is less resistant). It is primarily used to determine the percentage of time that a leaf surface is wet, versus the time it is dry.
The 0871LH1, manufactured by Goodrich, is a sensor that detects the presence of icing conditions so that appropriate actions can be taken to prevent damage to power and communication lines, to warn of road hazards, or to keep ice off wind turbine blades or a plane’s wings.
The 03002, manufactured by R. M. Young, measures wind speed and direction with a 3-cup anemometer and a wind vane mounted on a small crossarm. It interfaces directly with Campbell Scientific dataloggers; no signal conditioning is required.
