High Accuracy Wireless Wind Speed Transmitter

The wireless wind speed transmitter (Anemometer) T24-WSS is built on Mantracourt’s T24 2.4 GHz wireless technology and works alongside any T24 device such as base stations, handheld displays, analog output, relay modules, GPRS data loggers, computer interfaces, etc. Data transmitted by the T24-WSS can be received by several T24 receivers and displays.

By constantly monitoring average wind speed through the use of its low power mode between transmission periods, the T24-WSS provides users with an exceptional battery life in excess of 12 months in the field. Furthermore, this module is capable of achieving a wireless range that reaches up to 800 meters (2,600 feet), while also being supplied to the user pre-calibrated.

Some of the features of the T24-WSS include a high quality 3-cup rotor, which is kept within a rugged enclosure, that provides rolling average wind speeds within the measurement range of 5 mph to 125 mph. In addition, this module also measures gusts at user-defined periods of 1, 3, 5 or 10 seconds.

All wind speed measurements can be made available in the following units: m/s, fps, mph, km/h or kn. All output values are pre-calibrated and can also be easily configured to the user’s specific needs.

Accuracy:

  • 0.5 mph from 5 to 10 mph
  • ±4% from 10 to 125 mph

The T24-WSS is powered either from internal batteries or an external supply. For applications which require high sampling rates for long periods Mantracourt’s Power Pack1 and Solar Panel1 (PP1 & SP1) offer an ideal solution.
