Wind Sensors (Anemometers)

Wind is measured using a so called anemometer. The term is derived from the Greek word anemos, meaning wind. For the measurement of wind speed and wind direction several principles may be used, as described in the WMO ‘Guide to Meteorological Instruments and Methods of Observation'. At this moment wind sensors or anemometers can be divided into two types. Static ones based upon the ultrasonic principle and mechanical cup and vane types sensors. Observator offers a wide range of wind sensors with these two principles, which all have one thing in common: designed to be used within the hardest environmental conditions.
