Visibility only SWS sensor for aviation, highway and general meteorological applications The SWS-050 visibility sensor is optimised for use in applications where accurate and reliable visibility measurements are required. The forward scatter measurement principle and compact design ensure the output is both accurate and reliable in all weather conditions. The inclusion of hood heating and advanced self-test features as standard makes the SWS-050 Biral’s most cost-effective solution for visibility measurement. The SWS-050 is a very capable well specified general purpose visibility sensor that is used in a wide variety of applications and operating environments. With the same accuracy and reliability as other members of the SWS sensor series the ICAO 9328 compliant design and seamless integration with the ALS-2 Ambient Light Sensor allow the SWS-050 to be used for both general visibility monitoring and as part of instrumented RVR systems. Applications The 10m to 40km measurement range coupled with advanced self-test make the sensor well suited for weather station use. Window contamination monitoring and compensation ensure the results remain accurate even in challenging conditions. Where blowing snow or freezing conditions are experienced the hood heaters, which are fitted as standard to the SWS-050, keep the optics clear and the sensor functioning correctly. Operation The SWS-050 has a series of features that reduce maintenance requirements to a minimum whilst ensuring accurate and reliable operation. These features include contamination monitoring on all its optical windows.
