Which observation instrument should be considered on a typical wind system?

The first step to designing a Wind-alarm system is to assess the needs of your application.

Users may select All-In-One wind monitoring solutions or search among a large range of weather sensors engineered differently to suit each application requirement.


What is the best wind sensor available for your application?

Each sensor has its own advantages: from a solid and compact mechanical wind sensor to a low-maintenance ultrasonic sensor with no moving part. Some applications may require specific requirements such as Lloyds register approval or ATEX Intrinsically safe equipment. Other wind sensors may be best suited for high-speed and high-accuracy situations. In most case, the choice of the sensor always comes down to the application requirements.



How robust should your Wind Alarm installation be?

Some Wind-Alarm installations require higher level of specifications than others. When it comes to withstand the highest wind on Earth, it becomes a trade-off between robustness and maintenance requirements.



Why should you consider ATEX Intrinsically Safe certified wind instruments?

Intrinsically safe equipment is defined as equipment and wiring incapable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy under normal or abnormal conditions to cause ignition of a specific hazardous atmospheric mixture in its most easily ignited concentration.



Why should you prefer Lloyds Register Approved Wind Sensors?

Marine & Offshore Applications face the most challenging environment including salt water, corrosion and humidity. In order to increase safety and assure uninterrupted offshore operations, it may be relevant to choose Lloys Register Approved Anemometers which will guaranty the suitability of the equipment for Marine and Environmental Monitoring Systems.

Is your Wind Alarm sensor handling extreme temperature?

Based on the application, wind sensors may be confronted to specific environmental influences such as winter conditions, humid environment or even hot weather. High-specification anemometers are specifically designed to operate in very cold icy conditions (ice, snow). Equipped with optional heating and de-icing capabilities, those systems are designed to withstand salty and wet conditions as well as the freeze or thaw conditions.
