RADAR PRECIPITATION SENSOR - LUFFT WS100
Lufft WS100 is a sensor with radar technology and adjustable heating.
Using a 24-GHz Doppler radar, it measures the speed of all forms of condensed water. These include rain, freezing rain, hail, snow and sleet.
The low-energy sensor detects precipitation from the first drop.
Measurement surface: 9 cm²
Precipitation types: Rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, hail, drizzle; No precipitation (SYNOP 4677)
Principle: Doppler radar
Accuracy: ±0.16mm or ±10% of the measured value for liquid precipitation*
Resolution liquid precipitation: 0.01 / 0 .1 / 0.2 / 0.5 / 1.0 mm (pulse interface)
Droplet size: 0.3...5.0 mm
Drop Size Distribution: 11 drop size classes with bandwidth of 0.5 mm
