WINDCAP® Ultrasonic Wind Sensor WMT700

Robust and reliable ultrasonic anemometer for wind measurement for meteorology, aviation, maritime and wind energy applications. The WMT700 uses ultrasound to determine horizontal wind speed and direction. The measurement is based on transit time, the time it takes for the ultrasound to travel from one transducer to another, depending on the wind speed. 

Key Benefits

Maintenance-free
The WMT700 has a durable full stainless steel structure with welded arms, clear north indication, and one point, quick bayonet-style mounting. It has no moving parts, and it is resistant to natural contamination and corrosion(such as salt, dust, or sand).
Accurate measurement of wind speed
Patented Vaisala WINDCAP wind measurement technology that ensures accurate results in all wind directions. Self-diagnostics and validation of measurement are standard features. With latest WMT704, it provides wind measurement up to 90 m/s.
Heated models designed for cold climates
Available with four different heating options that shield the transducers, and/or the sensor arm, and/or the sensor body from ice and snow build-up in cold climates.
