ESS Earth Sciences supply a large anemometer range, to Australia. Our commercial anemometers and research-grade first-class wind speed sensors mean we cater to all requirements. We supply compact anemometers, handheld anemometers, ultrasonic anemometers, and cupped anemometers.
Factoring in outputs, types and accuracy grades, ESS Earth Sciences supply over 40 different anemometers. There are too many for us to list. To obtain prices and information on the anemometer which best suits your application, we encourage you to contact us with specific details on your requirements. We will respond to your message quickly (usually within a couple of hours).
Cupped Anemometers – First Class and None First Class Anemometers.
Classic cupped anemometers ‘capture’ wind with lightweight cups. They are the industry standard for measuring wind speed. As the wind speed increases so do the speed at which the cups spin on their spindle. The speed of the rotation is directly related to the wind speed. Carefully manufactured lightweight cups will spin in even the lightest of winds. This allows the capturing of the smallest of breezes, information critical in farming, and Met calculations. Cupped anemometers we supply are certified according to IEC 61400-12-1 (2005-1)
Combined Anemometers – Wind Speed and Wind Direction.
Combi wind sensors will measure both wind speed and wind direction simultaneously. Combined sensors can be in the form of a classic cup and vane formation or as an Ultrasonic sensor. It is common to see ultrasonic anemometers and vanes integrated into compact weather stations which may also measure, temperature, humidity, pressure, rain, irradiance, and lightning.
Ultrasonic anemometers can measure fast changes in changing wind speeds due to their acoustic measuring principle. As there are no cups (hence no inertia to overcome) gusts and peak values can be measured.
Commercial Grade Compact Anemometers
Compact anemometers are suitable for industrial applications such as measuring wind speeds on the top of buildings or throughout large facilities. Such anemometers are ideal for when first-class standards are not required but accuracy and robustness still add value.
