PRECISE SNOW DEPTH MEASUREMENT BY MEANS OF ULTRASONIC TECHNOLOGY
The USH-9 is an ultrasonic sensor for the precise, continuous and non-contact recording of snow depths. The robust design, a special ultrasonic head as well as and extremely low energy consumption make the USH-9 a very suitable system for extreme weather conditions and so for alpine and high alpine terrain.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
The USH-9 is especially suitable for extreme weather conditions and so for alpine and high alpine terrain. Its high operational safety enables a permanent and reliable recording of measurement values, for which reason it is commonly used by meteorologists, avalanche warning services, ski regions, research stations and the energy sector.
The snow depth is an important parameter for evaluating the snowpack. It must be measured regularly as the development of the snowpack is subject to strong regional and temporal fluctuations and significantly influenced by actual weather Ultrasonic Measurement of Snow Depth conditions (snow or rainfall, air temperature, wind, etc.). The USH-9 is a non-contact device and therefore does not compromise the snow pack. It can measure depths of up to ten meters continuously and with convenient remote data transmission if needed.
