In the latest issue of Meteorological Technology World you can find a lot of information about our new optical sensors, the SHM30 snow height/depth sensor and the CHM15k cloud height sensor as well as the new product developments.
A new snow height sensor equipped with multipoint laser measurement technology – three separate modules to prevent data loss in the event of a module failure and with a better integration into existing measurement networks – will be launched by German company Lufft. ...'
Its predecessor, the SHM30, is used to improve the safety of China’s rail network for high-speed trains but is also used for weather services, traffic and aviation safety, road surveillance and winter sports. The systems are installed within a measurement network in connection with other Lufft sensors such as the WS400-UMB, WS500- UMB and WS600-UMB. As the trains run at an average speed of 300km/h, with the fastest at 400km/h, safety measures are particularly important. The Chinese rail network today covers 9,300km.
