The Ultrasonic Anemometer WP serves for the 2-dimensional acquisition of the horizontal components of the wind velocity and wind direction.
It has been developed especially for the application in harsh environments, and is eminently suited for the use on wind power plants thanks to the compact construction and low weight. The serial or analogue output of the data occurs optionally as instantaneous value or as moving average value with settable time frame.
If necessary, the instrument is automatically heated at critical ambient temperatures. The risk of malfunction by freezing is thus minimized. The ultrasonic transducers are heated, as well as all essential housing components. The following measuring values are available:
- Orthogonal wind velocity vectors (X- and Y-distance)
- Scalar or vectorial wind velocity and wind direction
- Acoustic temperature
- NMEA data protocol
- ASCII Thies-format
- MODBUS RTU protocol
- Analogue data output
Compared with the classic anemometer, the measuring principle allows an inertiafree measurement of quickly changing parameters at highest precision and accuracy. The measuring values can be delivered digitally and / or analogously.
The instrument combines the more than 20 years‘ experiences with ultrasonic sensors in the field of meteorological measuring technique in the Thies company.
