Snow Depth Sensing with Zenith

Snow Depth Sensing with Zenith - MaxBotix

Ankara, Turkey based company Zenith Scientific Instruments developed a snow depth sensing application. The application uses an ultrasonic sensor to measure the snow depth at different locations. Industries Served by Zenith Scientific Instruments:

  • Meteorological
  • Electronical

Why use ultrasonic MaxBotix Ultrasonic sensors for snow depth?

Ultrasonic sensors are used to measure the distance between the sensor and an object. They work by sending out sound waves at a certain frequency and measuring how long it takes for the wave to bounce back. By knowing the speed of sound in air, you can calculate the distance from the sensor to the surface of the snow. MaxBotix sensors can be used in harsh environments, including cold and wet environments.

How are ultrasonic used by Zenith Scientific Instruments?

Built with ultrasonic sensors, these snow depth sensors are used to detect snow levels by government entities and ski resorts. The turnkey solutions developed by this company are commonly used in avalanche warning systems, ski regions, research stations, and the energy sector. Therefore, they can be used on mountains all over the world. Zenith Scientific Instruments is one of the leading companies that provide high-quality products for measuring snow depths. Their main focus is to develop new technologies related to weather forecasting, meteorology, and environmental monitoring.
