The FT7 Series of wind sensors powered by Acu-Res® technology are very strong, corrosion resistant wind sensors designed to give many years of reliable service in buildings, railways, bridges and other types of critical infrastructure.
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.
Ideal for Harsh Environments
The aluminium body also ensures that heat is evenly distributed for effective ice prevention and is sealed to IP67 standard ensuring high levels of resistance to rain and dust. 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 designed to deliver data availability above 99.9% and is particularly well suited to use in harsh and demanding environments.
It is currently installed on buildings in London, Bahrain and Tokyo and on a High Speed Rail test track in Japan. For further information read our case studies.
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.
