Mantracourt Launches Wireless Wind Speed Sensor
Anemometer design is based on Mantracourt’s T24 2.4Ghz Wireless Technology
Mantracourt have announced the launch of the T24-WSS wireless wind speed sensor. The T24-WSS is a built on Mantracourt’s T24 2.4GHz wireless technology and will operate alongside any Mantracourt T24 device such base stations, handheld displays, analogue outputs, relay modules and GPRS data loggers and other acquisition modules.
“This has been another customer driven development for Mantracourt,” said Kelly Voysey, Sales and Marketing Manager at Mantracourt. “This type of wind speed measurement devices is enabling our customers to accommodate temporary installations or to use instrumentation in locations where it would be difficult to use a fixed wired system.”
UK based Mantracourt is a leading manufacturer of industrial measurement technologies and a world leader in the design and manufacture of electronics, including strain gauge, temperature, resistance, pressure, voltage, current, potentiometer, rate, flow, LVDT and displacement in either analogue, digital or wireless form.
The wireless wind speed sensor features a high quality 3-cup rotor pressed on a stainless steel shaft with rugged Delrin body with bronze Rulon bushings. The output value of the anemometer can be calibrated and configured to the user’s requirements and can measure over the range 5 to 125 mph. It will ‘power down’ between transmissions to maximise battery life in the field and has a wireless range of up to 200 metres.
The Mantracourt T24 wireless telemetry range is a flexible low power radio system designed to enable the transmission of high accuracy measurement data from load cells, inclinometers, accelerometers, temperature, displacement and pressure sensors. With a combination of transmitter and receiver technologies, engineers are able to remotely monitor instrumentation readings.
Mantracourt design and manufacture instrumentation for load cells, strain gauges, pressure sensors, torque transducers, flow sensors, temperature sensors, for signal conditioning, display and control using analogue, digital and radio wireless telemetry techniques. Based near Exeter in the South-West of England, Mantracourt Electronics has become firmly established as a key technology provider to many major OEM sensor manufacturers and now has a product range of over 1000 designs. Key to its commercial success is Mantracourt's specialist engineering team that is constantly developing new products using the latest technologies and components. Mantracourt was awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2009. http://www.mantracourt.com/
