10KM Ceiling Lidar Ceilometer

SkyVUEPRO

10KM Ceiling Lidar Ceilometer

The SkyVUE™PRO LIDAR Ceilometer measures cloud height and vertical visibility for meteorological and aviation applications and is ideal for long-term research applications where a high level of detail is required.
Its robust construction is ideal for long-term installation, as it requires minimal maintenance and features a unique stratocumulus calibration procedure-allowing the ceilometer to be calibrated in the field.
The SkyVUE™PRO complies with CAA, WMO, and ICAO guidance and meets or exceeds all recommendations and specifications, including CAP437, CAP670, and CAP746. With an operational reporting range of 10 km, the SkyVUE™PRO is easy to use yet boasts advanced signal processing and unique optical arrangements to provide superior resolution and performance.
The SkyVUE™PRO has many standard features, from a tilting base & two-axis inclinometer for automatic correction of cloud heights to heaters, blowers, and a sun filter for operation under all conditions making deployments possible around the world.
Unique standard features include an easy-to-operate stratocumulus calibration, long-life back-up battery, and twin clocks to augment its many continuous diagnostic self-checks and provide assurance of continuous, reliable, & accurate performance.
