KNMI - Field test of the Lufft / Jenoptik SHM30 laser snow depth sensor
Field test report of the Lufft / Jenoptik SHM30 laser snow depth sensor, conducted by Netherlands weather service KNMI - R&D Information and Observation Technology - De Bilt, from December 2011 - June 2011.
Compact, reliable and cost-efficient - Accurate measurement of snow depth / snow height sensor SHM30 based on an opto-electronic distance sensor / laser rangefinder technology.
Compact, reliable and cost-efficient. The SHM30 snow depth sensor reliably determines snow depths up to 10 meter within seconds and with Millimeter precision, due to opto-electronic/laser based rangefinder technology.
- Snow depth
- opto-electronic measuring technique with eye-safe laser sensor
- Determination of snow depth over long distances, MTBF (meantime between failure) >40.000h, allows discrimination between snow and grass, very compact and weatherproof housing
- RS232, RS422, analogue output
