|Name||Metair modified LI-7500|
|Name||CO2 and H20 by InfraRed absorption|
|Acronym||CO2 and H20 by IR absorption|
|Measured parameter||CO2, H2O|
|External dimension||sensor head 30 cm long, 7 cm diameter; electronic housing 25 x 25 x 4 cm|
|Operating mode||In situ|
Mounting in a flow-parallel perforated tube in order to achieve a well defined homogeneous density distribution, measured by p and T. Active flushing of the sensor head with clean gas instead of using the internal scrubbers which are too slow to cope with leaking observed during descents after high-altitude operation.
suitable for slow aircraft (<60 m/s) only.
28 VDC, a few Watts.
NO, only for DIMO underwing pod and MetAir operation.
YES, in principle, also consulting on how and why to make the modifications.
|Could also fit on any aircraft having the following characteristics|
