Humidity Measurement on the Testbed / Central Weather Station

The AVL Humidity Measuring Equipment is designed to measure relative humidity and air temperature for different applications. Duct mounting (e.g. intake port) and wall mounting are supported. The AVL Central Weather Station METEOR Measuring Equipment is able to measure barometric pressure, air temperature and relative humidity. For a test field or a group of testbeds, one weather station hardware can be used to centrally capture environmental data. The AVL Central Weather Station software acquires environmental data like temperature, humidity and ambient pressure via the network from the weather station hardware. This data, stored in the central SANTORIN Host System, can be distributed automatically across the entire AVL PUMA Open™ test field to each AVL PUMA Open™ test bed.

AVL Approach

The objective of AVL´s Instrumentation and Test System division is to optimize our customers' workflow processes by providing reliable and accurate instrumentation, open hardware and software systems and consistent user interfaces throughout.

AVL provides all necessary sensors for monitoring the engine and measuring various parameters.
