Wind sensor – where used
Building Maintenance Systems. As part of a weather monitoring system. Wind turbine site testing & control applications. Ventilation and air extraction systems. With structures and equipment vulnerable to high winds (aerials, awnings, etc). Windows, vents and skylights. With inflatable structures (such as tennis courts). Plaza fountains. Roller shutter doors and electric gates. Numerous other processing plant, factory, industrial and commercial sites. Typical applications.
(Note the Instromet wind switch can also be used for many of these applications where a PLC is not available).
Building Maintenance Systems (BMS) to switch on fans, open vents and control equipment. Measuring and recording wind speeds & directions for real-time monitoring, historical recording & site assessment. Suitability site testing for wind turbines. Ventilation and air extraction systems – switching fans on/off, switching opening & closing vents, etc. Signalling lowering mechanism on aerials and opening & closing awnings. Closing roller shutter doors, gates, windows and skylights in higher winds. Operating fans on inflatable structures (such as tennis courts) to make them safe in high winds. Operating reducing pump pressure on plaza fountains in high winds. Numerous other safety applications, control and operational applications.
