The NIRS31-UMB is a non-invasive road weather sensor working with optical principle and is mounted several meters above the surface at bridges or masts. It measures surface conditions such as wetness, ice, snow, or frost as well as water film heights, ice percentage in water and freeze point temperature. Through these measurements it generates the friction coefficient on the road or runway.
Parameters measured:Layer thickness of water, snow and ice, surface conditions (dry, damp, wet, snow, ice), friction, optional: road surface temperature
Measurement technology:Optical principle, pyrometer
Product highlights:non-invasive, easy to install and add to existing measurement networks, friction measurement, real time data providing
Interfaces:UMB-binary, SDI-12, ASCII-UMB, analog outputs in combination with digital-analog-converter DACON8-UMB
Non-invasive and easy to install
Open UMB protocol
Can be even mounted on bridges
Analoge outputs in combination with 8160.UDAC
For winter maintenance operators as part of road weather stations on roads, motorways, highways (municipalities, federal states and provinces)
For smart cities
For airports, installed on runway as important part of the IDS (ice detection system) and water film height detection (aqua-planning risk)
