Product Description:
The radar precipitation sensor Lufft R2S-UMB allows fast measurement of precipitation intensity and distinguishs between precipitation type (Rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, hail). The operation is maintenance-free, thanks to radar measurement technology

The speed rate of drops is registered with a 24 GHz doppler radar system. By comparison between the speed rate and the size of drops, the quantity of rain or its intensity will be registered. The road condition (rain/snow/snow-covered rain/freezing rain/hail) is determined thanks to the speed rate of the rain. Resolution up to 0.01mm, without maintenance.

Parameters measured:          Rain/precipitation quantity, rain/precipitation type (Rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, hail)
Measurement technology:    24GHz Doppler radar
Product highlights:               Very fast response time, maintenance-free measurement, present weather detection
Interfaces:                              RS-485, various RS-485-protocols, analogue output

  • Very fast response time - Rain detection with the first drop! Very important for traffic applications, where every minute counts!
  • Distinguishs different precipitation types (Rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, hail)
  • Maintenance-free operation – no moving parts that can wear out thanks to radar measurement technology
  • Suitable for solar-powered automatic meteorological stations
  • Resolution for rain intensity of 0.01 mm
