LUFFT Secondary Meteorological Station

 

Overview

The secondary meteorological station (MET), developed by Lufft, is a solar powered weather station with multiple integrated sensors that measures solar radiation, wind direction, wind speed, air temperature, relative humidity and air pressure which then can be transmitted wirelessly. The system is mounted on a 10 meter tower that is permanently affixed to a concrete base. In the pilot-scale demonstration, the unit will be placed northwest of the AY/AZ complex for accurate weather readings. This data will be transmitted to the data collection/management system in order to correlate instrument readings with real-time weather data. The technical details for the Lufft Meteorological station can be found here:
