LSI LASTEM offers sensors and systems for the measurement of meteorological parameters useful for the anemological analysis of the site and verification of the dynamics of the odors produced by the plant. Only sensors with analogue or digital outputs (RS485 Modbus-RTU) that can be connected to third-party systems or LSI LASTEM acquisition systems already dedicated to the management of the composting plant or bio-filters are available, or meteorological stations are available that are independent of the rest of the instrumentation, but that use part of the same programs on PC for an integrated information management.
• Sensors for measuring the temperature and relative humidity of the air
• Sensors for wind speed and direction measurement
• Complete meteorological monitoring stations
• Software for anemological analysis of the site and odor dynamics
LSI LASTEM stations are professional and complete solutions for acquiring typical meteorological parameters such as air temperature and relative humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, solar radiation and rain. The station consists of a basic kit that includes a choice of sensors, a 12-input data logger and a software application for programming and data transfer. Starting from the chosen basic kit, it is possible to integrate additional sensors, communication equipment, power supply, mounting accessories and other software applications, chosen from the wide LSI LASTEM range.
Combined sensor for wind speed and direction measurement with cup and vane system
Models are available with 4 ÷ 20 mA or RS485 Modbus-RTU output. Speed and direction are fundamental to assess the dynamics of the atmosphere.
Air Temperature and Humidity Sensor
These sensors can also have 4 ÷ 20 mA or RS485 Modbus-RTU output.
Odor analysis software
The GidasADM program calculates and displays the odor concentration (in odor units or as a percentage of the calculated maximum value) in a given area. The program uses a simplified version of the Gaussian model WinDimulas developed by ENEA (Ente Nazionale Energie Alternative) and Maind Srl; this model is also recommended by the ARPA Agency. GidasADM allows a preliminary analysis of odor concentration. It can be useful to understand where and in what concentration the odors produced by the plant have greater impact on the areas surrounding the plant.
