10 years of partnership between ÖBB and Thies CLIMA: A look back at precision and reliability!

January, 2024 - 10 years of Thies CLIMA weather stations in the ÖBB measuring network: The Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) and the German company Thies CLIMA can look back on 10 years of partnership. Together they have expanded the meteorological measuring network of ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG across the board, now with 33 automatic weather stations at particularly critical locations along the ÖBB rail network, with the latest station being installed at the Semmering Wolfsbergkogel site.

ÖBB has been operating a comprehensive weather warning system since 2005, which is used, among other things, for the early detection of natural hazards such as avalanches, debris flows and heavy rainfall events. The probability of these events can be predicted using models based on locally recorded weather data. In this way, the weather stations contribute to the early detection of hazards and help to ensure uninterrupted rail operations. After initially only operating so-called high mountain weather stations at alpine locations, an EU-wide tender for additional basic weather stations for installation in the immediate vicinity of the tracks and at particularly neuralgic points such as in front of tunnels and bridges followed in 2012. Thies CLIMA was awarded the contract by ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG with a bid that was convincing in terms of technology, quality and ultimately also price.

These basic weather stations are equipped with a comprehensive range of sensors, such as ultrasonic anemometers, sunshine duration sensors, pyranometers, snow depth sensors, hygro-thermo sensors, laser precipitation monitors, rain monitors, precipitation sensors and temperature sensors. The stations are also equipped with data loggers, a complete data management system and a comprehensive range of accessories. Thies CLIMA products are characterized by their precision, reliability and robustness. Seamless data compatibility with the existing network ensures that the data is provided reliably and quickly in the central database for further processing. Another component is the accompanying maintenance contract, which is implemented by Thies CLIMAʻs sister company, Thies Systems. This ensures continuous compliance with the high quality standards. The qualified team, trained in accordance with the employee protection standards specifically required in the railroad environment, maintains the existing network and implements the installation of new stations.

ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG strategically planned and designed the basic weather station network in detail in collaboration with meteorologists. The decision to implement this measuring network proved to be the right one back in 2013, when the country was hit by a devastating flood. Thanks to the weather data provided in real time, it was possible to close railroad lines in good time for safety reasons and prevent damage to people and vehicles. Since then, the weather station network has been systematically supplemented and expanded in a proven partnership.

Voices from the partnership:
Fö Ing. Herbert Kupka (Route Management and System Development, ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG): "Thies CLIMA has proven to be a reliable, future-proof and innovative partner."
Marc Hillebrecht (Export Manager, Thies CLIMA): "The long-standing cooperation with ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG fills us with pride. Supporting a measurement network over the years, both in terms of technology and service, is a valuable source of feedback for us."

The 10-year partnership between ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG and Thies CLIMA underlines a common business principle: long-term, secure planning and reliable partnership. Sounds old-fashioned - but it is still a promising recipe for successful projects.

Wind measurement with Thies Ultrasonic 3D at the Neujahrsspringen of the Vierschanzentournee in Oberstdorf, Garmisch-Partenkirchen ...

Dec. 2023/Jan. 2024: In the world of ski jumping, our ultrasonic anemometers are constantly working in the background - they are the silent helpers. These high-precision anemometers play an inconspicuous but crucial role by continuously and accurately measuring the wind conditions with their ultrasonic measuring principle. Since 2009, the wind factor calculated from these wind measurements is an official part of the scoring for the jumps. The wind measurements contribute to more fairness and safety. In a sport that is often described as a "wind lottery", our anemometers help to make the influence of the weather on the athletic success of ski jumpers calculable, so that athletic performances can be compared as objectively as possible. Of course, the jumpers also use the wind data to prepare for the jump and to help the organizers ensure the safety of all participants. And despite all the technology, it is still a risky sport, so we admire all the ski jumpers who fearlessly throw themselves down the jumps and jump incredible distances. And despite all the technology, it is still a risky sport, so we admire all the ski jumpers who fearlessly plunge down the hills and jump incredible distances.
We are proud to be able to make a small contribution to making ski jumping fairer and safer with our sensors, and we congratulate all the ski jumpers and participants on this exciting winter spectacle and look forward to the upcoming competitions.

Letʻs keep our fingers crossed for a successful and impressive continuation of the Four Hills Tournament!

Precipitation analysis perfected: Thies Clima Precipitation Analyzer!

Supercooled, FZRA, FZDZ, FZFG, and black ice. Our "Precipitation Analyzer" detects and accurately quantifies precipitation.

Our cutting edge technology detects and measures different precipitation types, especially supercooled precipitation. Thanks to the unique design with a pyramid-shaped measuring surface made of special ceramic material and resistant glass coating, we detect precise surface temperatures. The sensor uses as measurement principles the analysis of temperature peaks to detect the heat of crystallization and the different dielectric properties of water and ice. This enables very accurate discrimination and quantification of precipitation incidents, including phase changes. The analyzer is ideal for early warning systems in traffic applications, on roads, bridges, airports, marine and industrial applications where icing poses a safety risk. With its advanced method for early detection of supercooled precipitation, the device contributes to efficient winter maintenance and timely initiation of safety measures. The device was developed and tested with the German Weather Service (Deutscher Wetter Dienst DWD) for use at airports.
Various telegrams can be selected via RS 485 in ASCII format. We recommend the Thies Clima data logger "DLU-E", commercially available serial data loggers are also possible.

Hygro-Thermo-Baro Sensor Compact

High measuring quality and robust, reliable technology

The Hygro-Thermo-Pressure (H T P) sensors of our COMPACT series are designed to measure relative humidity, air temperature and atmospheric pressure.

This sensor is well suited for use at meteorological measuring stations and for connection to data logger systems. Due to its universal interface, the sensor can also be used as a single solution in any suitable application.

The excellent dynamics due to the separately positioned temperature sensor and the use of stainless steel as the housing material, as well as the protection class IP 67, are the special features of this sensor. This allows it to be used even in applications with the highest stresses.

The outstanding features of the sensor are:• high long-term stability,
  • almost linear characteristic curve,
  • very good dynamic behaviour,
  • resistance to condensation,
  • low temperature coefficient,
  • lowest hysteresis.

Weather live – Datalogger DLU

The internal WEB server displays the instantaneous measuring values clearly-arranged as text and as diagram. The measuring values are, device-specifically, prepared by the WEB server and optimally displayed, depending if the data query comes from PC, tablet and smartphone. A simple data visualization is, thus, possible without additional software.

Watch now


Datalogger Universal DLU with Ethernet and WEB-Server

The datalogger records measuring values via two serial interfaces RS485/422, and via integrated analogue and digital input channels. The serial interfaces are designed for the connection of sensors with THIES data protocol. It is possible to connect up to 32 devices to one bus. The analogue inputs serve for connecting a humidity temperature sensor with PT100, and voltage output, and up to three sensors with voltage output 0 … 10 V. The digital inputs support the direct connection of a wind direction transmitter with synchronous-serial output, and two precipitation meters with pulse output.
