Crane Anemometer PCE-WSAC 50W 230 is primarily used to measure and monitor the wind load on cranes or wind turbines. Furthermore, the wind situation can be measured and analyzed before commissioning a wind turbine. The crane anemometer PCE-WSAC 50W 230 is equipped with alarm relay for a pre-alarm or main alarm.
Due to the high measuring range of up to 50 m / s of the crane anemometer, stormy gusts can also be monitored. The radio range of the anemometer is in the open field up to 750 m / 2500 ft in the free frequency band of 2.4 GHz. When installing the display of the crane anemometer PCE-WSAC 50W 230 in buildings, a range of up to 60 m / 200 ft can be achieved for the wind sensor. Due to the integrated 4 ... 20-mA analogue output of the wind alarm display, the measured data can also be transferred to other controllers for evaluation.
A big number of human activities in many spheres, professional and leisure depend on the ambient conditions and wind in particular. To provide guaranteed normal functioning and safety, high constructions, bridges, buildings, masts, equipment etc must be installed in accordance with the requirements and be stable in order to resist the possible weather changes.
Seamen, professional and amateur, no matter whether it is a long voyage or a short fun sailing trip must never leave the shore unprepared. A crane anemometer is an indispensable device that should be at any ship or boat, as well as in the harbour and ports where there are lots of moored and sailing ships. Careful and accurate measurement of the wind speed and direction may give a timely indication and warning and thus, become life-saving.
