Visibility Ambient Light Sensor Model 6300

The Belfort Model 6300 Ambient Light Sensor is designed to integrate with any Belfort visibility sensor, providing accurate and reliable visibility and ambient light data for Runway Visual Range calculations.

With serial outputs, the Model 6300 can also be used as a stand-alone ambient light sensor.

The physical package for the sensor is the same proven design already installed in over 1,000 ASOS Visibility Sensor suites worldwide. Both window/hood and electronic heaters are employed for low temperature and blowing precipitation conditions.

Extensive self-diagnostics include processor, memory and heater diagnostics as well as window fouling conditions.

These sensors are assembled around a compact and sturdy corrosion resistant housing which can be easily installed on the Visibility Sensor support mast. The standard unit incorporates optics/hood heaters to prevent condensation on the optic elements and to prevent freezing precipitation on the hood. A thermostatically operated enclosure heater may also be separately powered for extremely low temperature operation.

Belfort Visibility Sensors have earned a leading reputation with the world’s foremost meteorological and transportation organizations. The Model 6300 Ambient Light Sensor brings the same high reliability technology to Runway Visual Range applications.
