Here in Germany the days are getting colder and the winter services is already on alert – a good time to think about monitoring the road weather as seamlessly as possible! In the following you find facts and figures on road safety and some recommendations of measurement systems that provide efficient and almost gapless information.
Launched in 2008, the NIRS31 was Lufft’s first non-contact road weather sensor that allows easy installation without road closures and costly construction work. It is therefore particularly suitable for the use on bridges where the installation of embedded ground probes entails structural risks. As bridges are usually exposed to stronger winds and the cooling and evaporation of the underlying water it makes sense to monitor them thoroughly.
The NIRS31 was also the base for the development of the mobile sensor MARWIS and the latest stationary sensor with a lower installation height StaRWIS. Reason enough to dedicate this contribution to this sensor – with the best references!
Have you noticed the new logo on our website? With the new design, our logo becomes part of a larger whole: Lufft is part of the Meteorology Division of OTT HydroMet. All the associated logos are now matched to each other. But what exactly is it composed of and what does the new design look like?
Next week it’s time for the most important trade show of the year for us: The Meteorological Technology World Expo (MTWX) will take place at the RAI Amsterdam from 9 to 11 October 2018 and offers many highlights you shouldn’t miss.
