Wind meters
Here you will find wind meters for the measurement of air velocity and air pressure. According to the type of application, wind meters are made as hot wire wind-meters or pocket weather wind-meters, all of these wind-meters can measure air velocity and air pressure. Wind meters for the measurement of air velocity and air pressure. The measurement results can be stored in memory of the device (depending on the model). There are a lot of different instruments available in our stores. These wind meters are ideal for taking quick or constant measurements. Wind meters for measuring air velocity and volume flow are available here. The pocket-sized wind meters are implemented as hot-wire wind meters, vane wind meters, cup wind meters or portable, waterproof wind meters depending on the particular application.  You will find the appropriate wind meters for each sector from industry over handwork to your hobby. With these wind meters air-conditioning systems as well as ventilation systems can be monitored with regards as to their performance. Moreover wind meters will be used when sailing to determine wind velocity. Wind meters are the basic instruments necessary for metering your site's wind speed. For wind turbine projects, where 0.1 m/s difference in the long term wind speed can make the difference between a viable and unviable project, it is worth investing in good quality wind meters. Since some of our instruments for the measurement of wind possess a data logger function, it is possible to store the measured data on internal storages. Moreover it is possible to transfer the measuring results to a computer later-on in order to guarantee easy data storage and further analysis.  Attachments and ISO calibration certificates are also available for these measurements (information: calibration of wind meters). Here you will find a table with wind velocities and their broadly classification. In addition to that, extensive accessory is available for our instruments. Our technicians and engineers are available to assess your needs and recommend the best suited solution and any of our other products, simply call our offices on: UK customers +44(0) 23 809 870 30 / US customers (561) 320-9162. Our engineers and technicians will be happy to help you with our measuring instruments and of course, with the other products in the field of regulation and control, and scales and balances.

(Conversion information for units used by wind meters)

General information regarding wind meters each with an exemplary link to a typical device:
The wind meter (in Greek anemos = wind) tend to measure wind velocity. The wind velocity will be standardized with a wind meter at an elevation of 10 meters since ground wind velocity varies extremely locally. The measurement can be made thermally (hot wire wind meters), by wind cooling of a heat wire as well as mechanical (side wheel wind measuring meters)
 or by pressure (pitot tube anemometers) depending on construction type. The newest technology uses ultrasound. These kinds of devices are very expensive compared to the additional value of a better result. 

Cup wind meter
Cup wind meters are used when wind force should be determined direction-independent. The operational principle is similar as for vane wind meters. The wind encounting on half shells triggers an angular momentum: This angular momentum will be transformed into electrical signals via electronics. The presentation of wind velocity at this cup wind meter usually takes place on an LC display. Cup anemometers will be used in meteorology or for determination of wind situations before commissioning of wind power station. For this purpose the wind logger PCE-WL1 will be used often.

Vane-wind meter 
An angular momentum will be triggered by wind that encounters the vanes when using a vane wind meter. The wind meter presents the emerged rotation on the display. For instance, a forked light barrier gives the measurement impulse to the evaluation electronic during the usage of the vane wind meter. Problems with the vane wind meter occur due to the start-up speed since a certain wind velocity is needed to drive the vane. Modern vane wind meters avoid these problems, since they are executed very small and so frictional force at the wind meter can be minimized. It must be kept in mind that measuring direction-independent with a vane wind meter is impossible. Vane wind meters are often used for sailing or aviation sports. 

Ultrasonic wind meter
The ultrasonic wind meter works with 4 ultrasonic transmitters and ultrasonic receivers respectively. A propagation delay of the signal is caused due to the wind that flows between the ultrasonic components. The ultrasonic wind meter measures the delay; therefore it can draw conclusions regarding the flow velocity. The advantage of an ultrasonic wind meter compared to a conventional wind meter is that no wearing parts exist. Another advantage is that along with the flow velocity the flow direction can be measured precisely with the ultrasonic wind meter. The ultrasonic wind meter will be used in meteorology, agricultural industry as well as in shipping.

Thermo wind meters / hot-wire wind meters 
A sensor element will be heated up by electricity while using a hot-wire wind meter. The electrical resistance changes due to heating of the component of the thermo wind meter. The heat will be emitted into the environment owing to the passing ait flow. The transfer of heat is connected with the flow velocity. The hot-wire wind meter measures the electrical parameters. So the hot-wire wind meter can draw conclusions with reference to velocity of flow. The sensor in a thermo wind meter can be executed as wire, similar to the Hot-wire Wind meter PCE-009, or like thin film similar to the Thermo Wind meter PCE-423. The measurement with a thermo Wind meter always takes place in dependence with wind direction. Hot-wire wind meters are often used for blower door measurements. 

Pitot tube Wind meter
The measurement of wind velocity with a pitot tube wind meter is preformed via differential pressure. The pitot tube wind meter documents the pressure, that encounters the pitot tube as well as the pressure that exists around the pitot tube. Through the measurement of differential pressure and a conversion the pitot tube wind meter can conclude on the velocity flow. Pitot tube wind meters are used to measure high velocities of flow. The pitot tube wind meter can also be used in the aircraft industry or in motor racing. The measurement direction of the wind meter is always the wind direction.

Since for many of the wind meters the volume flow of a flow channel can be shown on the display directly by indicating the cross sectional area. Therefore complicated conversion can be avoided since the formulas saved in the measuring instrument contain weighting for edges of flow or core flow at the same time. Please note that the probe of the measuring instrument (propeller, thermal flag or pitot tube) has to be hold centrically and absolutely in flow as well as in flow direction. You can also elliptical drive along the flow cross-section (for devices with averaging calculation) to reach optimal solutions. Directional arrows are affixed on many anemometers. Please note the enclosed instructions for using. If you place the sensor the wrong way around into the air flow wrong measurement results can occur or the wind meter can even be destroyed. For instance, by using devices with impeller due to the fact that the impellers have a fixed running direction. Please make sure that no dust particles are in the air you want to measure since thin flag can be destroyed easily by impacting particles. Since the sensor is the most important as well as most expensive part of the device the complete wind meter would be unusable in case of destruction. Please use a vane wind meter for light charged media or a pitot tube wind meter as of a minimal flow velocity of 5 m/s. These devices are very accurate, extremely robust and cover a wide range of velocity.
