Ultraschall Anemometer WP

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

Output format:
  • 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.

Ceramic rain monitor

The rain monitor is designed to act as a sensor detecting the start and end of precipitation. It is used as a status indicator or sensor for controlling downstream safety devices (control units) protecting windows, ventilation flaps, sunblinds, awnings, etc. The sensor area takes the form of a capacitor on glass-coated ceramic. Glass passivation ensures that the rain monitor is extremely environment-resistant as well as robust while offering good long-term stability and resistance to aggressive media.
Whenever precipitation strikes the rain monitor and wets the sensor surface, this changes the capacitance of the surface, so triggering a switching signal, i.e. wetting of the sensor surface signals the precipitation status "yes".
To protect the sensor surface from bedewing and icing-up, it is heated to an over temperature of approx. 2K.
When the sensor surface is wetted, it is adjusted to approx. 10K above the ambient temperature, so ensuring fast faster drying. Once it has dried, the device switches to the precipitation status "no".

Datalogger Universal DLU

The datalogger DLU is a complete measuring system for data acquisition by sensors with serial interface, for ex. for ultrasonic wind sensors, laser precipitation sensors, and Clima Sensor US. In addition, two precipitation sensors with pulse outputs can be connected as well as a Pt 100 temperature sensor, and a humidity sensor.
The datalogger records the data up to one year. They can be queried by means of SD card, serial interface RS485 or USB interface. The datalogger is supplied by 12V DC or alternatively via solar panel. A solar charge controller is integrated in the datalogger.
The data output CSV compatible, and can be processed directly via MEVIS, and MeteoOnline.
