The Gill WindObserver 65 is a precision, solid-state ultrasonic anemometer providing wind speed and direction data via 1 digital and 3 optional analogue outputs and features an IP66 rated stainless steel housing, which is particularly suitable for use in salt-water environments.
Offering a high wind speed measurement range, this anemometer has an optional de-icing system enabling the sensor to operate effectively in environmental conditions experienced at high altitude or at sea and is recommended for use in aviation, marine and offshore applications.
The WindObserver 70 is a solid state, heated ultrasonic anemometer designed for use within the aviation industry. The sensor has been accepted for service by both the FAA Federal Aviation Administration (USA) and the CAA Civil Aviation Authority (UK) for the observation and reporting of surface wind. This WindObserver meets the requirements of Annex 3 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) when supplied as part of a suitable AWOS*.
With 150 Watts of electrical heating in the anemometer head producing 1 Watt/cm² and tested in accordance with MILSTD810F, the unit is particularly suited to operate as part of Aviation Automatic Weather Observing Systems, which are often exposed to extreme weather conditions. Manufactured from stainless steel with no moving parts the sensor requires no on-site calibration and minimal maintenance.
The WindObserver 75 has been developed for measuring higher wind speeds in extreme weather environments featuring 150 Watts of electrical heating power in the anemometer head. This anemometer has been designed to remain ice free in most freezing weather conditions. The sensor provides data via RS422/RS485 bidirectional link, which allows several units to be networked together and data logged on demand.
With innovative transducer design, this anemometer boasts a very high wind speed range of 0 - 75 m/s (0-168mph) and gives an output status indicating the validity of data, so that you can be confident that the instrument is providing accurate information. 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.
Marine meteorological observations require devices designed to withstand the hardest environmental conditions such like heavy vibrations, sea spray, extreme colds, chemical particles etc. With a major track record the Marine and offshore market is the home market for the Observator meteorological product line.
The OMC-116 is a ultrasonic wind sensor based on the time of flight theory. The unit is provided with industrial standard NMEA0183 outputand can optionally be provided with 4..20 mA signals. The robust design in sea worthy alu and stainless steel as well the standard available heating makes this unit ideal for the hardest environments. The standard bracket with integrated junction box makes this unit easy to install.
The popular and often used wind sensor OMC-160 is a combined wind speed and direction sensor, based on the cup and vane principle. Having chosen for the highest quality stainless steel materials and internal non-contact measuring devices, this sensor stands for a long life time, having the highest accuracies within both the low range as well as the high range wind speeds.
This sensor is commonly used within the shipping and offshore industry but can also be found on many airfields, container terminals and harbors, along highways and on bridges.
WindSonic is a robust, low cost ultrasonic wind sensor with no moving parts. This 2-axis ultrasonic wind sensor offers maintenance-free wind speed and direction monitoring for true ‘fit and forget’ wind sensing.
The Gill WindSonic is a genuine low cost alternative to conventional cup and vane or propeller wind sensors, with all of the advantages of solid-state ultrasonic technology. With no moving parts to jam, break or wear out, this ultrasonic wind sensor is ideal for use in harsh weather conditions.
WindSonic is a 2-axis ultrasonic wind sensor, providing wind speed and direction data via one serial or two analogue outputs. To confirm correct operation, wind sensor outputs are transmitted together with an instrumentation status code.
WindSonic M is a robust ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor with aluminium alloy construction and optional heating system. The sensor is solid-state with no moving parts, using ultrasonic measurement technology to detect wind speed and direction at speeds up to 60m/s (134mph).
The robust aluminium alloy housing is hard-anodised to ensure suitability in harsh marine environments, and the optional heating system allows operation down to -40ºC.
