  LOA-105 Long-baseline Optical Anemometer
   • Complete path-averaged measurement
 • Ultra low response threshold –– 0.1 m/s
 • Field proven scintillation technology
 • DSP based – no field calibration needed
 • Continuous self diagnostics & testing
 • Unaffected by dust and dirt build-up
 • Easy Installation and integration
 • Almost no maintenance. Operates unattended 24/7/365
 • Rugged, HF resistant design                                                        
  The LOA-105 is specially designed for superior performance in tough environments. The sensor uses proven optical technology. The eye-safe LED transmitter and twin photodiode receiver simply need to “look” through the area to measure the airflow. It's maximum path length of 3 km makes large areas easy to handle. The LOA-105 has received the seal of approval from the US government for EPA Method 14 equivalency.
