Wind Measuring Systems

First Class Wind Transmitter

The First Class wind transmitters are designed to evaluate the location and capacity of future wind power systems. The anemometer measures the horizontal component of wind speed and the direction transmitter detects the horizontal wind direction. The measured value from each is available as a digital signal at the output.

The rotation of the carbon-fibre reinforced plastic cup star on the anemometer, is scanned opto-electronically and converted into a square wave signal. The frequency of this signal is proportional to the number of rotations. The measured value is available as a digital signal output.

The light weight, aluminum wind vane runs on ball bearings and through magnetic coupling to an integrated potentiometer provides a directional signal that is friction free. Available signals include resistance, mA, V or digital.

Compact Wind Speed & Direction Transmitters

Our compact wind transmitters have the perfect price performance ratio for most commercial and industrial applications. Their built-in heaters make them serviceable in winter conditions and their standard 4-20mA output signal makes them simple to interface to building control panels or industrial chart recorders.

Speed transmitter

The wind velocity is measured by means of a low inertia plastic cup-star whose ball-bearing axis is connected to a slotted disk. This disk is scanned opto-electronically and supplies 11 pulses with every rotation. These pulses are converted in the instrument to 4 ... 20mA.

Direction transmitter

The wind direction is measured by means of a low inertia metallic wind vane whose ball-bearing axis is connected to a slotted disk. The code disk is scanned opto-electronically and has been built with a 5 bit Gray Code to give a resolution of 11.25 degrees. This Gray-Code is converted in the instrument to 4 ... 20mA.

Classic Wind Speed Transmitter

The wind transmitter is used for the registration of the horizontal component of the wind velocity. The measuring value will be placed at the output as analog signal. The signal can be given to display instruments, recording instruments, datalogger as well as process wise systems. The wind transmitter is equipped with an electronically regulated heating system in order to prevent ice and frost from the ball bearings and the outer rotation parts (please refer to instrument models).

Power supply unit provides the transmitter and the heating system with current. It is advisable to attach a Lightning rod in areas with considerable lightning activity.

Ultrasonic Anemometer

The Ultrasonic Anemometer 2D is designed to detect the horizontal components of wind speed and wind direction as well as the virtual temperature in two dimensions. Due to its very short measurement intervals, the instrument is ideal for the inertia-free measurement of gusts and peak values.
In certain weather situations the accuracy of the air temperature measurement (virtual-temperature) surpasses that one of the classic method where the temperature transmitter is used in a weather and thermal radiation shield.

The measured data are available as analogue signals and as a data telegram over a serial interface. The sensors instrument as well as the instrument body are automatically heated so that the measuring results, in case of critical ambient temperatures, are not affected by ice, snow or rainfall.

Wind Instrumentation Catalog

Today more than ever, the measurement, processing and analysis of meteorological data requires a high degree of measurement instrument precision
and an optimal adaption of the data acquired to the task at hand. For more than 50 years, we have been developing, producing and supplying practical
instruments and systems for the analysis of weather data.

Today we are one of the world’s largest suppliers of such equipment. Our close cooperation with scientific institutions and governmental agencies in many countries guarantees a constant and up-to-date flow of information about all aspects of individual national problems and projects and the rapid implementation of state-ofthe- art developments and measurement techniques.

Our instruments and systems fulfill in all respects both to the requirements of national weather services as well as those of the World Meteorological Organization
in Geneva.

Meteorological observations without computer-aided measurement and documentation systems are unthinkable today. THIES develops complete ready-for-use-systems which include precision data transmitters, data loggers, power supply units and personal computers with adapted software.
