Wind Sensors

The main applications of wind measurement are in the field of meteorology and industrial applications such as in wind turbine business. In order to design a profitable wind farm, the local wind conditions are measured to perform a detailed wind site assessment. Once the wind farm is set up and running, its best performance has to be ensured. Thus wind measurement does not stop with connecting the wind farm to the grid. Long service life, reliability and functionality under extreme conditions are the most important requirements in almost every application, which our sensors fulfil.  Working with our vendor partner Lufft, Traffic Products offers a full line of wind sensors.  Contact us for more information.

V200A

Extremely precise and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction

E xtremely precise and maintenance-free measurement of wind velocity and wind direction as well as calculation of acoustic virtual temperature. The ultrasonic wind sensor is designed without mechanical parts as they have been used with traditional "cups and vanes". The digital or analog output delivers instantaneous, average, min or max value with flexible measuring rate. The V200A-UMB is heated in case reaching critical ambient conditions. Recommended for: meteorology or building automation. The following outputs/protocols are available: NMEA, ASCII, UMB and 4.. 20 mA analog.

  • Parameters measured:Wind speed, wind direction, virtual temperature, barometric pressure
  • Measurement technology:Ultrasonic
  • Product highlights:Maintenance-free measurement, suitable for extreme ambient conditions, ice-free operation, compatible interfaces
  • Interfaces:SDI-12, RS-485, various RS-485-protocols, analogue output

Ventus UMB 

Extremely precise and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction even in the lowest temperature

The accurate wind sensor uses the run-time differential method for determining the wind speed and wind direction. It provides output for instantaneous values, vector and scalar means, the maximum gust of wind and wind direction, the maximum/minimum values and the virtual temperature. Data output through serial or analogue interfaces provides compatibility of the Lufft Ventus for commercially available hydrometeorological dataloggers and PLC systems. An automatic heater ensures reliable operation even in the lowest temperature.

  • Parameters measured:Wind speed, wind direction, virtual temperature, barometric pressure
  • Measurement technology:Ultrasonic
  • Product highlights:Maintenance-free measurement, suitable for extreme ambient conditions, ice-free operation, vibration and seawater resistant, compatible interfaces
  • Interfaces:SDI-12, RS-485 with supported protocols Binary, ASCII, NMEA, Modbus & analogue output
