visibility sensors

Bushfire Smoke Visibility SensorMonitor atmospheric visibility up to 2 km distance with our range of visibility sensors.

Models DPA305 and DPA312 visibility sensors with a measuring range up to 2 km are designed to detect fog and haze on roads and in tunnels. DPA305 with both digital and analogue outputs as well as relays for switching external equipment; it can be integrated into Intelligent Transport Systems and used for automatically switching warning signs in changing visibility conditions.
Model DPA311 analyses water particles of different forms in the air as fog, rain or snow or mix form. It can measure visibility, type of precipitation including its intensity and accumulation.
