VS20-K  

The VS20k visibility sensor measures visibility up to 20'000 m, ideal for road traffic applications on motorways, highways or bridges. A calibration device is available (optional). 
The VS20k-UMB is configured via the software UMB Config Tool:

  • Reading / Changing of the current configuration,
  • calibration,
  • polling of the current measurement values,
  • the software allows configurations to be loaded and stored.

The measurement data is available for further processing in the form of the standard protocol Lufft UMB.

ASD = Active Spider Defense: The built-in vibrating motor ensures at irregular intervals that the VS2k visibility sensor is not so prone to spiders. The construction of VS2k also reduces the frequency of maintenance.

  • Parameters measured:Visibility (measuring range 10 ... 20'000 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
