altimeterThe Alpine-El is a highly accurate altimeter with many additional features. It can also be used as an accurate barometer. With several years recorded meteorological data from various places it proved easy to develop thanks to the extremely high-resolution pressure measurement, a model for the prediction of strong winds (Storm Warning).

Staff members and partners of Votec have developed this device. The meteorological data that was needed to develop the storm warning, was delivered by MeteoSwiss. The sensor know-how is available since about 1985 and was also used in many other fields.

used specific know-how:

  • pressure measurement: piezoelectric absolute pressure sensor
  • display: custom LCD
  • operation: control concept with three buttons
  • specific knowledge of modeling (storm warning)
