How ultrasonic wind sensors work?


 

  • How to measuring wind speed?

 

  Ultrasonic wind speed sensors typically utilize two pairs of ultrasonic transmitters and receivers mounted on either side of the sensor. As the wind passes over the sensor, it changes the path and speed of the ultrasonic waves.

 

  By measuring the difference in propagation time of the ultrasonic waves from the transmitter to the receiver, the wind speed can be calculated.

 

  • How to measuring wind direction?

 

  Measuring wind direction is accomplished by comparing the difference in propagation time between two pairs of ultrasonic transmitters and receivers. Due to the effect of wind, the propagation speed of ultrasonic waves varies in the downwind and upwind directions. The wind direction is determined by comparing the difference in propagation time in these two directions.

 

Advantages:

 

 

Precision: Ultrasonic wind sensors provide highly accurate wind speed and direction measurements, minimizing errors in data collection.

 

Durability: With no moving parts, ultrasonic sensors experience less wear and tear, resulting in a longer lifespan.

 

Low Maintenance: The absence of mechanical components reduces maintenance needs, making ultrasonic sensors a cost-effective choice.

 

 

 

 

How to Install Wind Speed Sensors and Tips?

 

  Adopt flange mounting, threaded flange connection to make the wind speed sensor lower fittings firmly fixed in the flange, chassis Ø65mm, in the circumference of Ø47.1mm open four are Ø6mm mounting holes, the use of bolts will be tightly fixed in the bracket, so that the whole set of instruments, to maintain in the optimal level, to ensure that the accuracy of the wind data, the flange connection is easy to use, and can withstand the pressure of the larger.

 

 

 

Step 1: Choose an Optimal Location

 

Mount the sensor at a height above potential obstructions, such as trees or buildings.

Ensure the sensor is in an open area to capture unobstructed wind flow.

 

Step 2: Sensor Orientation

 

Align the sensor correctly with the prevailing wind direction.

Avoid placing it in the shadow of nearby structures that might cause turbulence.

 

Step 3: Secure Mounting

 

Utilize sturdy mounting hardware to secure the sensor in place.

Regularly check for any loose connections and tighten if necessary.

 

Step 4: Calibration

 

 

Follow the manufacturer's instructions for calibration.

Regularly calibrate the sensor to maintain accuracy.
