SVS1 visibility sensor

Home/radiation & light/visibility/SVS1 visibility sensor

SVS1 visibility sensor

The visibility sensor SVS1 measures atmospheric visibility, also known as meteorological optical range (MOR) by determining the amount of light scattered by particles (smoke, dust, haze, fog, rain, & snow) in the air that passes through the optical sample volume. A 42-degree forward scatter angle is used to ensure performance over a wide range of particle sizes.
