Fog Detector

10 m – 40KM

The MSM visibility sensor, model MVS, is designed for general meteorological applications in extreme marine conditions where accurate and reliable visibility measurements are required.

It is manufactured with robust aluminium and finished with a high quality powder coat to achieve a long life in the harshest marine conditions.

Heating of the optical windows and sensor hoods is provided as standard, allowing the use of the MVS in the harshest weather conditions

The marine grade sheathed cables ensure IP66 performance in all weather conditions for monitoring changes in visibility due to rain, snow, fog, smoke and dust.

With a measurement range of 10 m to 40 km, the sensor is suitable for use in offshore applications as well as meteorological observation networks.
