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...

Designing and Specifying the Right Loudspeaker System for Emergency Mass Notification in Public Venues

For every industry, there is nothing more crucial than having effective strategies for dealing with emergency situations. These are events you never hope for, but want the assurance of having the right solutions implemented when time is of the essence. Loudspeaker system optimization is essential when ensuring that communication is not lost when it is most needed. In this guide, you will learn about what key points to keep in mind when designing a loudspeaker system for your campus. This includes performing an on-site sound survey, selecting the right equipment for your applications, complementing your system with the right technology solutions, creating pre-assigned messages for different emergency situations, and having system accessibility no matter the circumstances. Download this guide for additional information on these public safety measures.

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...
