8KM Ceiling Lidar Ceilometer

SkyVUE8

8KM Ceiling Lidar Ceilometer

The SkyVUE™8 LIDAR Ceilometer is ideal for measuring cloud base heights and vertical visibility at airports, helipads (onshore or offshore), & other meteorological applications. The SkyVUE™8 measures the atmosphere with high stability and repeatibility, providing you with information on cloud base heights, sky condition (up to five layers), vertical visibility, and raw backscatter profiles. Notably, the ceilometer meets or exceeds all the necessary ICAO, CAA, and WMO requirements and recommendations.
Because of its robust construction, the SkyVUE™8 only requires minimal maintenance and can be continuously used in either static or mobile applications in harsh environments. Its compact design and low weight of 18 kg make it easy to transport and deploy. With an operational reporting range of 8 km, the SkyVUE™8 has one of the highest in its class. It is easy to use yet features advanced signal processing and unique optics to provide superior resolution and performance. The SkyVUE™8 has many standard fea-tures, from a tilting base and two-axis inclinometer for automatic correction of cloud base 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 & provide assurance of continuous, reliable, and accurate performance.

Benefits and Features

• Single-lens design for high signal-to-noise ratio and maximized detector sensitivity, resulting in greater performance at low and high altitudes
• High performance and high specification at a competitive price
• Low power consumption.
• Tilt angles to 24°, improving performance during precipitation events and reducing impact of solar glare
• Unique continuous comparison of two separate internal quartz clocks to eliminate possibility of clock drift and ensure measurement confidence
• User-friendly stratocumulus calibration capability & easy test with a calibrator plate provided as standard for easy field calibration.
