What are the Advantages of Ultrasonic Wind Sensors?

Whether mechanical, ultrasonic or laser wind measurements: all measuring methods have technical limits. While for mechanical wind sensors the measuring element - cups and vanes - itself predominantly produces a disturbance in the flow field, for ultrasonic anemometers a disturbance can be caused by the sensor holder or housing construction. Only optical methods, e.g. LDA (Laser Doppler...

Does Ultrasonic Wind Sensor VENTUS-UMB Pass Extreme Tests?

Sometimes we give our sensors a hard time. But this has a good cause: We want to guarantee the high quality and the keeping of our promises. A few weeks ago, the ultrasonic wind sensor VENTUS was the one to be challenged. We exposed the modern measurement device to extreme conditions. But did it endure these conditions? And where occurs enough wind to challenge the strong sensor at all? Wind...

Sensors measure visibility and environmental data.

Supplied in alloy housing that is resistant to seawater, VS2k-UMB Visibility Sensor accurately measures visibility values up to 2,000 m. Motor vibrates within housing at irregular intervals, preventing arachnids from nesting, which could cause interference. Directly attached to vehicle, MARWIS 2.0 Mobile Road Sensor measures road surface temperature, water film thickness, dew point, air...
