The Wireless Wind Speed Sensor (Anemometer) T24-WSS is built on Mantracourt’s T24 2.4Ghz wireless technology and operates alongside any T24 device such as base stations, handheld displays, analogue output, relay modules, GPRS data loggers and more.
The T24-WSS will ‘power down’ between transmissions to maximise battery life in the field and has a wireless range of up to 800 metres.
The Wireless Wind Speed Sensor (Anemometer) features a high quality 3-cup rotor pressed on a stainless steel shaft with rugged Delrin body with bronze Rulon bushings. Housed in an IP67 case.
The output value of the anemometer comes pre-calibrated and can be configured to the user’s requirements and measure over the range 5 to 125 mph. Other output units available are m/s, km/h and fps.
Accuracy: • 0.5mph 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) offers an ideal solution.
The T24-WSS is factory set to sample the anemometer every 5 seconds, running continuously the batteries in the module will last 1 month and 11 days (based on Duracell LR20 D Cells). Using a handheld, T24-RDC or other peripheral T24 device to wake and sleep the module will extend the battery life further. The sample frequency can also be increased however this will have an effect on the battery life as shown demonstrated below.
