HSS VPF-710 Visibility Sensor

HSS VPF-710 Visibility Sensor



HSS VPF-710 Visibility Sensor

The HSS VPF-710 Visibility Sensor is suitable for use in any system where a digital output to a computer or logger is required. This sensor has sophisticated levels of self test for remote monitoring and is used particularly on airports, helipads, wind turbines and offshore weather stations. As with all HSS sensors it has excellent time proven performance and is suitable for use in extreme conditions.


  • The RVR MOR provides a digital output and sophisticated levels of self test functions for remote monitoring of the sensor status.
  • It is a compact system with all electronics contained in the sensor head.
  • The combination of design, light-source, wavelength and undisturbed sample volume give this sensor unbeatable accuracy
  • Low Power: Integrates into control systems & weather stations that require low power equipment.
  • Optimum Design : Range is considered to provide the best correlation of EXtinction COefficient (EXCO) to observed visibility. In reduced visibility conditions, where other sensors report only precipitation, the RVR MOR sensors provide accurate visibility AND precipitation data
  • Accuracy: Uses an infrared diode light source which is proven to provide higher accuracy, longer life and more consistent readings than sensors which use visible light sources.
  • Consistency in All Weather : Measurements are the best possible regardless of wind direction and precipitation conditions. Sensor does not suffer from turbulence effects or from precipitation splashing off the instrument enclosure
  • The “no-dew heaters” on the viewing windows and optional hood heaters ensure that the heads remain free from mist and obstruction even in the most challenging blowing snow conditions.
  • Suitable for use on CAT I, II and III airports and helipads used in FAA, CAA and other similarly approved systems
  • Application Examples : Airfports, helipads, National weather networks, Marine weather stations, Wind farms, Offshore platforms, Meteorological data networks, Roadside weather stations, Research applications.
  • intelligently adjusts the intensity levels of navigational warning lights in line with the current level of visibility to minimise light pollution and help flash synchronisation
  • Proven accuracy, reliability & repeatability
  • Corrosion Free: Manufactured from hard-anodised aluminium, salt-dip brazed which ensures that thesensors are strong & leak-free. The military standard anodising provides unrivalled corrosion resistance & guarantees long-term durability by ensuring that the metalwork is totally maintenance free.
  • Unaffected by reflections To prevent snow & surface water reflections from causing measurement errors, the sensor heads of are positioned in the horizontal plane to ensure that the measurements are not influenced by surface reflections.
  • High Measuring Ranges: The wavelength of RVR MOR is perfect for the shift in light from white (visibility below 1 mile) to blue (visibility from 1 mile to several miles). RVR MOR also detects the shift from the white to blue spectrum and so maintain accuracy values to much higher visibility ranges.
