New Ultrasonic Wind Sensor from Vaisala.

Vaisala introduces the new Vaisala WINDCAP® Ultrasonic Wind Sensor WMT50 developed for measuring horizontal wind speed and direction.

The WMT50 is designed for numerous applications where inexpensive wind measuring is needed. The sensor has no moving parts, no field calibration is required, and it is, therefore, virtually maintenance-free.

Heating is optionally available in the WMT50.

The triangular design of the WMT50 solves the mechanical shading of transducers on measurement paths. This ensures accurate wind measurement from any horizontal wind directions, without blind angles or corrupted readings. The flexible WMT50 includes several protocols and four configurable serial interfaces: SDI-12, RS-232, RS-485, and RS-422. Also the serial output modes, wind variables (minimum, average, maximum) as well as data averaging and updating intervals are all configurable.

Typical applications for the Vaisala WINDCAP® Ultrasonic Wind Sensor WMT50 include meteorology, wind energy, marine, transport, pollution control, and agriculture.
