Company Profile

Meteolabor AG, founded in 1965 by the two engineers Paul W. Ruppert and Walter K. Büchler is principally active in two fields:
-Physical measurement technology, particularly for meteorological applications
-Electromagnetic compatibility with focus on lightning and NEMP protection

First automatic weather station network was implemented in the seventies as a pioneering project by the Swiss Meteorological Institute in cooperation with Meteolabor AG and has been in successful operation ever since. The project triggered a number of activities at Meteolabor AG. For most meteorological parameters, modern sensors with electrical outputs were developed which today are used in many measuring stations.

Since its foundation Meteolabor AG has been working in the specialized field of aerological measurement technology. At the beginning of the eighties Meteolabor AG developed it’s first secondary radio sonde systems for civilian and military weather services in Switzerland. These radio sonde systems are still in operational use and achieve high accuracy and reliability.
Meteolabor AG is a worldwide specialist in the protection of electronic systems against lightning and other electromagnetic influences. For such protection concepts Meteolabor AG provides consulting engineering services and also supplies the necessary components.

Highlights
Reliability and precision are the goals of Meteolabor AG. We have two divisions: the METEO division for meteorological instrumentation and the EMC division for protection solutions against HPEM-effects (High Power ElectroMagnetics) such as EMP (NEMP, HEMP) and lightning.

Products

Air pressure

The BM 35 barometer is a precise instrument that measures air pressure for meteorological applications.

Measuring range: 600...1100hPa, Resolution: 0.01hPa
Long term stability:   <100ppm / year       (<0.1hPa / year)

Air pressure

Humidity

The VTP6 Thygan is both a ventilated heated thermometer and a chilled mirror type dewpoint hygrometer.  The instrument is designed to withstand field operation and meets the highest standards for reliability and accuracy, even under the most severe environmental conditions.

Weather Stations

Our weather stations are comprised of various sensors and components.  Depending on your application's needs, we can assemble a weather station consisting of any combination of the following: thermohygrometer Thygan; thermometer VT36; anemometer WNZ37, WN37, or WMSC37; barometer BM35; and third party instruments such as raingauges or radiation instruments.

We use our proprietary MeteoBus system to connect all our devices. Our MetJournal software allows you to collect and visualize data with a user-friendly interface. The modularity of the system allows the highest degree of customization to meet your specific needs.

Radiosounding systems

Our radiosondes go beyond simply measuring temperature, humidity, air pressure, and wind. (PTU)

With additional sensors, our instruments sample other parameters such as ozone or aerosole content. SnowWhite® can measure humidity in the troposphere and lower stratosphere using a dewpoint mirror (chilled mirror)  for radiosondes.
