How To Mount Your Wind Speed Sensor?

wind speed sensor

Most of the anemometer types sold in the market are three-cup wind speed anemometer. This sensor uses the mature technology of early mechanical anemometers and is “equipped” with more advanced electronic chips in its structure. This makes the three-cup structure The advantages of this sensor are further explored, and this sensor has the advantage of not being restricted by wind direction.

So what is a three-cup wind speed sensor?

The wind cup anemometer can continuously monitor the wind speed and air volume (air volume = wind speed × cross-sectional area), and can measure the wind speed in the environment and display it in real-time. The following introduces the installation, use, and precautions of the three-cup wind speed sensor.

Installation method

Flange installation is adopted. The threaded flange connection makes the lower pipe fitting of the wind speed sensor firmly fixed on the flange. The chassis is 65mm. Four installation holes of 6mm are opened on the circumference of 47.1mm, and the bolts are used to tightly fix it on the bracket. On the top, the whole set of instruments is kept at the best level to ensure the accuracy of wind speed data. The flange connection is easy to use and can withstand greater pressure.

Two prohibitions:

1. It is forbidden to use the wind speed sensor in a flammable gas environment.

2. It is forbidden to put the wind speed sensor probe inflammable gas.

Seven don't:

1. Do not disassemble or modify the wind speed sensor;

2. Do not expose the probe and anemometer body to rain;

3. Do not touch the sensor part inside the probe;

4. Do not place the wind speed sensor in high temperature, high humidity, dusty and direct sunlight;

5. Do not wipe the wind speed sensor with a volatile liquid;

6. Do not drop or put heavy pressure on the wind speed sensor;

7. Do not touch the sensor part of the probe when the wind speed sensor is charged.

Three musts:

The wind speed sensor must be used correctly according to the requirements of the instruction manual; during use, if the wind speed sensor emits an abnormal smell, sound, or smoke, or liquid flows into the inside of the anemometer, be sure to unplug the power immediately. Keep away from high-power interference equipment as much as possible to avoid inaccurate measurements, such as inverters, motors, etc., when installing or removing the transmitter, you must first disconnect the power supply. Water in the transmitter can cause irreversible changes. Prevent chemical reagents, oil, dust, etc. from directly invading the sensor. Do not use it for a long time under condensation and extreme temperature environments to prevent thermal shock.

The wind speed sensor is convenient and accurate in measurement and can be used sensitively in many areas. It is generally suitable for urban environmental monitoring, wind power generation, climate monitoring, bridges and tunnels, marine ships, aviation airports, various fan manufacturing industries, and exhaust systems that require exhaust Industry, etc.
