LUFFT Weather Sensor on "Willi Wien Tower" of the German National Metrology Institute

Germany, 8 August 2017 -- The environmental sensor manufacturer Lufft from South Germany supplied the amateur radio interest group DL0PTB located in the German Metrology Institute (PTB) in Braunschweig with a professional weather sensor.

The environmental sensor manufacturer Lufft from South Germany supplied the amateur radio interest group DL0PTB located in the German Metrology Institute (PTB) in Braunschweig with a professional weather sensor. The WS601, which is installed on the 50-meter-high Willi Wien Tower, is in operation now for a few weeks.

"We have long desired to set up a professional weather station on the exposed location, as weather influences are decisive for radio wave ranges. That's why we contacted the weather sensor manufacturer Lufft", explains Thorsten Klages from the amateur radio club station DL0PTB.

Lufft responded and supported them with their plans. It quickly became clear that the WS601 compact weather sensor was the right choice: It delivers data on, amongst others, temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, air pressure, wind direction and wind speed.

"We have been successfully cooperating with the PTB for years. The well-chosen location in the 12th floor of the Willi Wien Tower convinced us to support the club", says Tobias Weil, marketing director of Lufft.

The weather station was installed by the technically interested radio amateurs themselves. The sensor was attached to an existing antenna mast of the tower using a traverse.

The radio amateurs plan to add the WS601 weather data to the ones issued by the lightning sensor from Earth Networks. The provider of the monitoring software "Weather Bug" collects hyper local weather data worldwide and makes these available to consumers.

In addition, the members of the radio station will publish the values on their own website at dl0ptb.de via a database.

In the past, Lufft has already supported another radio amateur club: In 2015 the local association of the club in Ravensburg got a professional Lufft compact sensor to build up an own weather station. Ever since, the radio operators have published lightning strike, temperature difference and storm warnings on their homepage.
