WS500-UMB Smart Weather Sensor:
From the WS product family of professional intelligent measurement transducers with digital interfaces for environmental applications. integrated design with ventilated radiation protection for measuring: air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind direction, and wind speed. It is possible to connect one external temperature or rain sensor.
Air Temperature and Humidity: Temperature is measured by way of a highly accurate NTC resistor, while humidity is measured using a capacitive humidity sensor. In order to keep the effects of external influences (e.g., solar radiation) as low as possible, these sensors are located in a ventilated housing with radiation protection. In contrast to conventional, non-ventilated sensors, this allows significantly more accurate measurement during high radiation conditions. Air temperature values with reduced accuracy are available as service channels for additional information. Additional variables such as dewpoint, absolute humidity, and mixing ratio are calculated from air temperature and relative humidity, taking account of air pressure.
Air Pressure: Absolute air pressure is measured by way of a built-in sensor (MEMS). The relative air pressure referenced to sea level is calculated using the barometric formula with the aid of the local altitude, which is user-configurable on the equipment.
Wind: The wind meter uses four ultrasonic sensors that take cyclical measurements in all directions. The resulting wind speed and direction are calculated from the measured run-time sound differential. The sensor delivers a quality output signal indicating how many good readings were taken during the measurement interval.
