Windmeter – Digital Anemometer
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.
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.
- 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
