Product code: WSFLEXIW1
A high quality wind monitoring system that is easy to install for immediate accurate wind measurement, complete with display to view data locally.
This systems measures wind speed and direction using the Gill WindSonic Option 1 ultrasonic sensor. The WindSonic sensor measures wind speed and direction in one unit, with no moving parts it requires virtually no maintenance and unlike traditional cup and vane sensors does not have bearings that require servicing or replacement. The Gill WindSonic sensor has an incredibly low start up speed with complete 0 to 360° operation with no dead band. The WindSonic ultrasonic sensor requires no calibration and is drop tested from 1m height and comes with a 2 year warranty as standard.
The WindSonic Option 1 sensor used in this system has an RS232 output and has a cable distance of 15m. If cabling distances are longer than this we can quote as required. For cable lengths over 20m a WindSonic Option 2 sensor with RS422/485 output is required - please contact us for a quotation.
The sensor is linked with the RS232 cable to our IP65 rated WS-15A Display Unit providing a clear digital readout of wind speed and direction plus a wind direction arrow with cardinal points. The display enables set-up of an optional wind speed alarm and provides an RS232 data output to connect to a SpaceLogger W10 or SpaceLogger W8 Wireless data logger or PC.
The system comes complete with a 0.9m anodised aluminium mounting mast and mains plug power supply. 12V UK or World plug options are available.
Systems can be leased or rented, please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
