RAman Lidar for Meteorological Observations (RALMO) is operated at MeteoSwiss and provides continuous measurements of water vapor and temperature since 2010. While the water vapor has been acquired by a Licel acquisition system since 2008, the temperature channels have been migrated to a Fastcom P7888 acquisition system, since August 2015. We present a characterization of this new acquisition system, namely its dead-time, desaturation, temporal stability of the Pure Rotational Raman signals and the retrieval of the PRR-temperature.
