Wind Sensors - Rika

What is an anemometer/wind sensor? 

An anemometer is an instrument that measures the air velocity. The main applications of wind sensor are in the field of meteorology and industrial applications such as in wind turbine business or high-rise crane safety monitoring. Wind speed sensor & wind direction sensor are used for wind speed and direction measurement. For the measurement of wind speed and wind direction, several principles may be used, as described in the WMO ‘Guide to Meteorological Instruments and Methods of Observations. RIKA offers a wide range of wind anemometer & wind sensors with wind cup principle, ultrasonic principle or hotline principle, which all have one thing in common: designed to be used within the hardest environmental conditions. There are diverse types of wind sensors like cup anemometer, vane anemometer, etc and among which that the wind cup anemometer is the most commonly used in meteorological stations.
