||The WindObserver 75 has been developed for measuring higher wind speeds in extreme weather environments featuring 150 Watts of electrical anti-icing enhanced heating power in the anemometer head. This anemometer has been designed to remain ice free in most freezing weather conditions. With an IP66 rated stainless steel construction this anemometer meets the stringent performance criteria specified by wind turbine manufacturers, airports, marine, oil and gas production, and meteorological organisations around the world. Typical applications include building controls/structural safety, wind turbine control, high altitude mountainous regions, road and rail tunnels/transport safety, Arctic/Antarctic weather monitoring, Ports and Harbours, marine vessels dynamic positioning systems, and aircraft landing systems. The sensor provides data via RS422/RS485 bidirectional link, which allows several units to be networked together and data logged on demand. Optional base mounts/cable exit can be added. The anemometer has a wind direction range of 0-359 degrees (no dead band), a wind speed range of 0 - 75 m/s (0-168mph) and gives an output status indicating the validity of data; wind speed accuracy for turbine control is +/-1% within +/-25 degrees of datum.
