The WS500-UMB and WS600-UMB from Lufft provides reliable wind measurements along high speed rail lines in China. As the trains travel at speeds of up to 400 km/h, wind speed-dependent control of train speeds is essential. For this purpose, wind measurement stations typically are installed at 5 km intervals along the track. Measurement data are processed in real time.
Complete reliability, long-term stability and high accuracy are crucial in this application. The WS600-UMB documents results by means of the measurement log which is provided for each sensor of the WS product family.
