FD70 Series is the seventh generation of Vaisala visibility and present weather sensors. It is designed based on more than 30 years of forward scatter technology development experience. This technology innovation sets a new standard in precipitation identification, quantification, and visibility determination accuracy.
The novel use of a single thin light sheet instead of the conventional light cone results in a high detection sensitivity. This enables a scatter-properties analysis of each single particle and allows the detection of even the smallest drizzle droplets.
