Published: Friday, October 10, 2014 A new addition to Lufft’s WS500 range of weather sensors will be launched at Meteorological Technology World Expo in Brussels. The all-in-one sensor WS510-UMB was developed in close cooperation with us and we congratulate Lufft on their latest development. It is their first weather sensor that includes an ISO 9060 Secondary Standard pyranometer, the CMP10.

The weather sensors WS501-UMB, WS502-UMB, WS503-UMB and WS504-UMB measure environmental data such as air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind speed and wind direction as well as global solar radiation. The quality of pyranometers differs per model. The WS501-UMB for example is equipped with the Kipp & Zonen CMP 3 pyranometer.

To cater to market requests and interest from the solar industry, Lufft consulted us for an integrated Secondary Standard pyranometer. “We soon agreed that the new CMP10 would be the best fit because it combines the high accuracy of the CMP 11 with 10 year lifetime of the desiccant. The CMP10 has been redesigned and thoroughly tested for Lufft. It fulfils all the secondary standard specifications like the standard Kipp & Zonen CMP10 / CMP 11.” Says Ruud Ringoir, product manager at Kipp & Zonen.
You can find Lufft at stand 2110 at Meteorological Technology World Expo from 21 to 23 October and take a closer look at the first prototype. The original CMP10 can of course be viewed at the Kipp & Zonen stand, 3140.
