MTR-08S Temperature Reference Sensor for Upper Air (Preliminary)

  • Product

Summary

Upper air temperature reference sensor(MTR-08S) is sonde with a fine tungsten wire (10 um diameter) for temperature measurement.

The response is 5/1000sec on surface and 40/1000sec at around 30km altitude, where air is thin. The response is 40times faster than conventional radiosonde.The response is 5/1000sec on surface and 40/1000sec at around 30km altitude, where air is thin. The response is 40times faster than conventional radiosonde.

The sampling data is acquired at 16th a second (16Hz) on the data conversion circuit with consideration of anti-aliasing. The vertical resolution is only 30cm approximately

The fine wire has the aluminum coating and the heating by solar radiation at 30km altitude is less than 0.5k. A reliable temperature data can be acquired.

Features

  • Temperature sensor with world’s fastest response time for upper air observation
  • It can capture the weather condition which operational sonde cannot measure because temperature with 0.01℃ resolution can be measured 16th a second
  • It is suitable for research of a fine structure in boundary layer, turbulence, and observation in stratosphere, where a response of operational radiosonde is slow
  • High response and alumni coating decrease the influence by solar radiation. It enables to acquire reliable data
  • To avoid error by self-contamination from sonde package box, it has long sensor probe and independent sensor rig
