Building reliability into outdoor sensors
OTT Hydromet has launched a suite of high quality weather monitoring sensors that are ideal for construction and building management. “Our latest Lufft WS Series sensors deliver professional-grade weather data with instruments that are extremely compact, rugged and reliable,” says OTT MD Nigel Grimsley. “In the past, customers would have had to purchase multiple sensors to monitor outdoor conditions effectively, but this can now be achieved with substantially less costly and smaller devices.”
Weather monitors are routinely employed at construction sites to check that conditions are suitable for work such as pouring concrete or crane operation, but with facility managers looking for more sustainable solutions, Nigel says the big market is now building management systems.
OTT is a specialist manufacturer of smart weather instruments for environmental monitoring and building automation purposes. With no moving parts, OTT’s comprehensive range of compact, low-energy multiparameter sensors offer long-term reliability for almost any weather parameter with easy integration into BMS and HVAC systems.
The range of parameters available include temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind velocity / direction, precipitation amount / intensity / type, UV index, sun direction, brightness and twilight, and global radiation.
