Visibility, Wind and Other Systems

About Other Warning Systems

Environmental Sensor Stations (ESS) provide real-time information about road weather and roadway conditions. Information is used to help operations and maintenance personnel stay informed about road weather system conditions to make timely decisions and improve traffic safety.

Our ESS are National Transportation Communications for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Protocol (NTCIP) compliant and offer a non-proprietary, open architecture design that allows maximum flexibility in choosing road weather sensors and telemetry options. Whether an agency needs to initiate alarms, mobilize emergency personnel or active road weather system related closures, HSE provides a professional solution to quickly and reliably transform data into actionable information.

Present Weather and Visibility – Model 5432

The Present Weather Sensor provides detailed information about precipitation and visibility. These measurements are used to help road weather professionals make important public and maintenance decisions.

FEATURES:

  • Activate fog warning signs
  • Low power consumption for remote installations
  • Heaters insure continuous operations

SKU: 5432-00 Categories: , , Tag:

Description

The sensor is typically installed on a tower or pole near the side of the roadway. It uses its 42° forward scatter angle for optimal precipitation and visibility measurement while reducing lens contamination and clogging from debris. The sensor identifies precipitation particles from their scattering properties and fall speeds, and combines this with a temperature measurement to identify the weather type.

The Present Weather Sensor incorporates low-power dew prevention heaters, as well as higher-power anti-icing heaters for the hoods as standard. These heaters are automatically controlled to ensure operation in all weather, or they can be disabled individually to save power.
