HT1800 Open-path water vapor Analyzer

       In today's uneven distribution of water resources, more understanding of evapotranspiration (ET) can be of great help to water management. Among various techniques, eddy covariance is the most direct method of measuring evapotranspiration. The required eddy covariance measurement system is based on a sonic anemometer and a highly sensitive hygrometer with fast response frequency (e.g. 10Hz).

       HealthyPhoton is introducing the new HT1800 TDLAS (Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy) Open-path Hygrometer designed for the eddy covariance method. Since the introduction of the HT8700 Open-path Ammonia Analyzer, we have gradually accumulated experiences in the development and application of instruments in the field of environmental monitoring. Our new HT1800 hygrometer has the open-path configuration that directly measures the moisture content of the atmosphere, ensuring the high accuracy and high speed of measurement. In terms of performance, the instrument fully satisfies the need in the eddy covariance method, and is indispensable in eddy covariance systems for ET analysis and flux corrections of other gas species.
