FluxPak - Complete Flux Measurement System
The FluxPack System - FluxPak is a complete flux measurement package that uses the eddy covariance method and provides for the measurement of fluxes, such as sensible heat flux, momentum flux, and latent heat flux. The basic system comes with an ultrasonic anemometer, a computer and the FluxSoft software package. The basic system will provide momentum and sensible heat flux and with a hygrometer added, H2O and latent heat flux can also be made available. The measurement of fluxes such as sensible heat, momentum, and latent heat, require a fixed set of instruments and software, operating the Eddy Covariance Method. Applied Technologies, Inc. has put together a complete package of instruments and software that can be configured into a variety of systems to perform this task. It's called the FluxPak.
An Eddy Covariance System, like the FluxPak is designed to measure fluxes in the surrounding air, such as momentum flux, latent heat flux and sensible heat flux. The FluxPak consists of an Ultrasonic Anemometer and DataPacker to combine various analog and digital outputs with the Ultrasonic Anemometer, and Flux Measurement Software package. The basic system will provide momentum and sensible heat fluxes, by adding a hygrometer, H2O and latent heat fluxes can also be made available.
The basic package of the FluxPak system can be fabricated around a desktop PC, a laptop/notebook PC or it can even be assembled into a weatherproof enclosure for harsh environments.
For an eddy covariance system, the DataPacker can also be used to combine various analog and digital outputs with the ultrasonic anemometer output.
