European Facility For Airborne Research Aug. 17, 2018, 11:58
|Name||FAAM Flourescence Water Vapour Sensor|
|Name||Non dew/frost point hygrometer|
|Measured parameter||Water Vapour, Relative Humidity|
The MOZAIC-Humidity Device (MHD) is a special airborne humidity sensing device (AD-FS2), developed by Aerodata (Braunschweig, Germany) and based on the humidity and temperature transmitter HMP230 of Vaisala (Helsinkin, Finnland). The sensing element itself is a combination of a capacitive relative humidity sensor (Humicap-H, Vaisala) and a Pt100 temperature sensor which has been installed in a Rosemount housing mounted on the outside skin of the aircraft in the vicinity of the nose cone.
|Operating mode||In situ|
Currently (June 05) needs operator on aircraft.
Approved by CAA for use on BAe 146-301.
Water Vapour by UV Fluorescence
Available from FAAM. (Met Office operated).
|Could also fit on any aircraft having the following characteristics|
