At the core of Climatronics’ meteorological monitoring systems is a complete complement of weather sensors, components and accessories. These weather sensors cover the range of each variables’ environmental range, and can be provided with a level of accuracy that matches each user’s requirements.
As the world addresses the challenges of global warming green energy production and in particular wind energy generation has increased significantly. Biral can provide sensors for the control of aviation obstacle light intensity, wind speed measurement and site assessment.
The Deutscher Wetterdienst (German Meteorological Service – DWD) has certified the VPF-710, SWS-100 and SWS-200 sensors as suitable for use in visibility controlled wind turbine obstruction light systems.
Climatronics has supplied meteorological systems for environmental monitoring and regulatory compliance for over 35 years. Our accurate, responsive, yet rugged sensors, coupled with high-power data loggers, provide users with the ability to make measurements on multi-level towers, multiple tower networks, and single sites, which comply with EPA, NRC, and international regulatory requirements.
SWS and VPF sensors are used in airports throughout the world as part of aviation ground control and meteorological monitoring systems. Our visibility and ambient light sensors form the core of Runway Visual Range monitoring systems used to control the safe landing of aircraft in reduced visibility conditions. Our present weather sensors provide automated precipitation classification and monitoring that forms a vital part of the METAR signals broadcast to aircraft in the airport vicinity.
The detection and reporting of thunderstorms is important in the aviation industry supporting both the safety of ground operations and the provision of meteorological data to aircraft and forecasting authorities. Our BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detector has been developed to be compliant with FAA regulations for lightning detection systems used at airfields.
The Biral sensors provide reliable, consistently accurate weather information day and night. This allows timely decisions to be made about spraying or gritting road surfaces and for switching road warning signs, achieving the best results from limited and valuable resources.
In addition to the visibility and present weather sensors, Biral are the appointed UK Distributor for the meteorological instrument manufacturer, Adolf Thies GmbH & Co. KG. The Thies Clima range of meteorological sensors is highly respected and used globally in many advanced meteorological applications. It offers a complete and complimentary range of sensors allowing a highly specified meteorological monitoring station or system to be constructed. The range includes cup and vane and ultrasonic anemometers, temperature, humidity, pressure and radiation sensors, as well as a wide range of compact weather stations and precipitation sensors.
