Present weather sensor
The precipitation quantity and intensity is calculated from the correlation between drop size and speed.
Interpolating these two parameters, the sensor PCTPR030 is able to calculate the amount of water with a resolution up to 0.01mm.
The type of precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, hail) is detected from the difference in drop speed.
The drop speed is captured with a 24-GHz-Doppler radar.
The measurement data is available for further processing in the form of a standard protocol.
