Learn More about the Main Prize

The weather station being offered as the main prize is part of the successful LUFFT WS family of products. The intelligent data collector with a digital interface for environmental applications has been a best selling device for years in the field of environmental data collection. The data station consists of the WS501-UMB compact weather station as well as the WTB100 precipitation sensor. The complex weather station can be used to create regional and local weather forecasts or to conduct weather-related experiments.

The station measures air temperature, relative humidity, electromagnetic radiation, air pressure, and the wind direction and speed. The relative humidity is calculated with a sensor while the air temperature is measured with a precise NTC thermometer. Wind data is collected with modern ultrasonic sensors. The environmental data is analyzed once a minute. The data measured by the station can then be published on one’s homepage and updated on a continuous basis or transferred to a weather center.

The entire LUFFT team is looking forward to many creative applications!
