Überblick

Der SR50AT ist ein Ultraschall-Distanzsensor, der aus der Zeit zwischen der Emission und der Rückkehr des Ultraschallpulses den Abstand zu einer Oberfläche bestimmt. So kann man Schnee- oder Wasserpegelhöhe messen. Der SR50AT enthält einen integrierten Temperatursensor und gibt einen temperaturkorrigierten Wert aus. 

Note: Campbell Scientific empfiehlt Modell SR50AT-316SS-L für den Einsatz in mariner Umgebung.

Funktionen und Vorteile

  • Integrated temperature probe for providing temperature correction of measurements
  • Non-contact method for determining snow depth
  • Wide operating temperature range
  • Rugged enough for harsh environments
  • User-selectable options for output
  • Uses a multiple echo processing algorithm to help ensure measurement reliability
  • Compatible with most Campbell Scientific data loggers

Technische Beschreibung

The SR50AT is an identical unit to the SR50A with the addition of an external temperature sensor. The temperature sensor requires a six-plate radiation shield. The SR50AT will output a temperature-corrected distance reading, eliminating the need for further post-processing, as well as a separate temperature reading.

The SR50AT was designed to meet the stringent requirements of measuring snow depths and uses a multiple echo processing algorithm to help ensure measurement reliability. The SR50AT is compatible with all current Campbell Scientific data loggers, as well as many other data acquisition systems. An air temperature measurement is required to correct for variations of the speed of sound in air. Either the SR50AT or an existing on-site air temperature sensor can be used. The SR50AT is available with a heater option for locations where rime ice is a problem.
