Visibility & Present Weather Sensors

Road visibility sensor

Visibility Sensor VS2k-UMB

The VS2k visibility sensor measures visibility up to 2000m, ideal for road traffic applications on motorways, highways or bridges. Long life time is guaranteed thanks to the sea-water proof housing design.

Parameters Measured: Visibility (measuring range 10 … 2000 m)

Measurement Technology: 45° forward light scattering

Product Highlights: suitable for extreme ambient conditions, active spider defence, seawater resistant, compatible interfaces

Interfaces: RS-485, analogue output
