Windmeter – Digital Anemometer

Last update

WindMeter is a high performing digital anemometer (wind gauge), suitable for monitoring wind plants and wind speed in ski lifts, motorways, airports and ridge ways.

Easy mounting anemometer - measure windspeed

WindMeter has been designed to give reliable readings.

The sensor has a mechanical plug-and-play. The use RS485 digital output simplifies the wiring especially in stations with multiple instruments and gauges, so that it’s possible to create a unique chain (bus) at the confluence of the different sensors data.

WindMeter is available with a M8-4 pole connector that allows a faster and superior installation and maintenance, as well as the possibility to install a multi-probe plug&play for easier maintenance controls.

It is compatible with the Ammonit Meteo-40 data-logger (on bus RS485).

Also available in the MEASNET centre’s calibrated version.

Key features

  • Standard Modbus RTU RS485 port to assure correct reading even at 500m distance.
  • Average and maximum wind speed measurement
  • Temperature measurement
  • Extreme weather resistance
  • Ease of installation to the structures
  • Calibrated one by one, for maximum accuracy
  • Anti-icing option
