Sensor Description

The MTECH Systems ceilometer sensors are cloud detection instruments designed for fixed and mobile installations where accurate and reliable cloud height, cloud ceiling, vertical visibility, cloud amount or sky condition detection are required.

The ceilometer device detects up to 4 layers / bases. The detector design is based on the LIDAR principle and is designed around an InGaAs laser diode. The light emitting component of the device is a high specification diode laser with the output power limited to an eye-safe level. Real time digitizing techniques are employed in signal detection and a powerful 32 BIT microprocessor and FPGA are used in signal processing in the ceilometer.

Please see the technical datasheet for further information on this sensor.
