CE376 - LiDAR

CE376 – Compact Automatic Aerosol LiDAR

The CE376 is the latest compact, eyesafe elastic backscatter LiDAR, featuring outstanding performances for the automated continuous monitoring of aerosols.

It operates in the visible (green) and in the near infrared (NIR) with one
depolarization channel for enhanced aerosol characterization.

The rugged, fully integrated system operates without shutdown, human attendance, authorization, nor maintenance.

With its thermal enclosure, the LiDAR can withstand extreme environmental conditions.

The CE376 is particularly easy to install (indoor or outdoor with its thermal enclosure) and to transport to different sites.

It is therefore, the perfect solution to monitor industrial dust emissions, urban pollution, volcanic ash and all type of aerosol particles.


Key Benefits

  • Aerosol measurements up to 15 km by night time (with typical AOD 0.2) and up to 6 km by day time (with typical AOD 0.1)
  • Very short blind zone (< 100 m) with a full overlap from 1200 m (Green) / 700 m (NIR) range
  • Real-time “quicklook” visualization
  • Automatic backscatter/extinction profiles (Klett inversion with AOD or LiDAR ratio)
  • High stability and low maintenance
  • Aerosol characterization for each layer and stratification analysis
  • Eyes safety compliance with EN-60825 / ANSI Z136
  • Planet Boundary Layer (PBL) and cloud detection
  • Easy transportation :  Outdoor / indoor operation
