The FT205 delivers high performance in a light package. Made from a graphite and nylon composite, and weighing only 100g (3.5oz), this sensor has been specifically designed for use on drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
Powered by our unique acoustic resonance technology, the sensor uses ultrasound to derive wind speed, wind direction and the air temperature inside the sensor's measurement cavity. It also features a built-in compass.
The FT205 may be light, but it's compact size and shape makes it physically very strong. It is resistant to electrical interference and is also fully-sealed and water-resistant. It is able to operate at altitudes up to 4000m and at temperatures between -20°C and +70°C.
With low power requirements, the FT205 Lightweight Wind Sensor is ideal for UAV flight control systems and environmental monitoring from drones and remotely piloted aircraft.
