Surface Temperature

 

Surface temperature meter

Surface temperature combined with friction values are critical information for airports to ensure safe landing conditions. It’s also important for runway maintenance to optimize cleaning and de-icing.

The Skiddometer CFME system can be equipped with surface temperature meter. It’s a great addition to determine surface conditions. A small meter is attached behind the Skiddometer BV11 trailer or Skiddometer BV11 VI pick-up truck. Temperature information can be seen and printed together with friction information on measuring computer.
