Weather Monitoring network equipped with Lufft wind sensor VENTUS

In 2010 we won a tender for 30 ultrasonic anemometers (as a part of meteorological weather stations). The National Weather Service of Mexico (CONAGUA) wanted to build weather stations in the southwest of Mexico (States of Chiapas and Tabasco).

According to the customer, Ventus-UMB is a very robust, yet precise sensor with a very good price / performance ratio. Moreover, data transmission via the SDI-12 protocol is in the opinion of CONAGUA a great product advantage. So the customer decided to construct the stations with our product.

Since the beginning of the project in 2011 the Lufft sensors are doing a very good job.

VENTUS Anemometer - ultrasonic wind sensor - sonic wind sensor for wind turbine control

VENTUS-UMB Ultrasonic Wind Sensor

Extremely precise and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction even in the lowest temperature

Thanks to the ultrasonic measuring method the wind sensor Lufft Ventus has no moving parts and therefore needs almost no maintenance. It measures wind speed and wind direction according to the WMO guideline and acquires the barometric pressure.

  • Wind speed, wind direction, virtual temperature, barometric pressure
  • Ultrasonic
  • Wind detection with birdproof construction, maintenance-free measurement, suitable for extreme ambient conditions, ice-free operation, vibration and seawater resistant, compatible interfaces
  • SDI-12, RS-485 with supported protocols Binary, ASCII, NMEA, Modbus & analogue output
