Description

Function:

To measure wind speed based on the pulse input received from the Cup Generator and to give output in the form of changeover of relay contacts when wind speed goes above the set speed.

Description:

  1. Anemometer is designed in two-parts, viz. Cup Generator and Monitor Unit. Cup generator Shaft rotates with the wind speed. This rotational speed is converted into frequency signal in the Cup Generator. This frequency is fed to the Monitor Unit as an input and based on the input frequency, Monitor Unit displays the wind speed in Km/Hr. It also gives relay contact output, when wind speed exceeds the set point.
  2. This Anemometer is fixed type, non-portable, suitable for Safe Area (Non Hazardous). It is suitable for Mobile Cranes, Stacker / Reclaimers and other Heavy Equipments which move on rail.

  Control Supply 110V AC OR 230V AC, 50 Hz or 24VDC.
  3 ½ Digit, 7-Segment LED Display for displaying Wind Speed.
  Alarm & Trip Set Points for Wind Speed.
  Adjustable Trip Delay for ALARM & TRIP SET POINTS.
  Potential Free Relay Contact for Alarm & Trip.
  IP-65 Grade Enclosure for Monitor.
  IP-55 Grade Enclosure for Cup Generator.
