Passive wind sensors

The FT7 Series of wind sensors powered by Acu-Res® technology are small and very strong passive wind sensors designed to give many years of discreet, reliable service whatever the environment.

In design, development and manufacture everything possible is done to ensure that the product is reliable, accurate and consistent. The sensor has no moving parts and does not need re-calibration. This eliminates the costs of inspection and re-calibration. The FT7 Series delivers a ‘fit and forget’ wind sensing solution.

Strong wind sensors

The aluminium hard anodised body is highly resistant to corrosion, sand and dust and is sealed to IP66 and IP67 standard. The aluminium body ensures that heat is evenly distributed for effective ice prevention. In addition the sensor is highly resistant to drop and vibration (up to 30G).

Every sensor is thoroughly tested before dispatch and is calibrated in our own wind tunnel and no further calibration is required.

The sensor has been used on armoured vehicles, on CBRN detection equipment and on ballistic meteorology systems. For further information read our case studies.

Recommended Products: FT742-DM / FT742-SM

The FT742-DM mounts directly onto a 33.7mm pipe and can be supplied with either RS485 or Analogue 4-20mA output. The FT742-SM has a built-in compass and is designed to be integrated into your own equipment. All FT sensors can be specified at time of order to output data in m/s, km/h or knots.
