WINDCRANE Q&A

WINDCRANE

There’re two versions of WINDCRANE:

  • WINDCRANE mini can use 1 wind speed sensor
  • WINDCRANE max can use 4 wind speed sensors, 2 wind directions and 8 other generic sensors

The WINDCRANE max can connect up to a total of 14 sensors. 4 of these wind speed and 2 wind direction

It depends on the cable used and the environment it is going to work with. In general we do not advise more than 100 meters without checking with us first. Cable must be supplied by WINDCRANE

Data is refreshed every 10 minutes with the average wind speed, maximum ever wind speed within the 10 minutes and wind turbulence intensity.

It follows the IEC-61400 standards

The typical accuracy of a generic sensor is between 3-5%. Higher accuracy, ie: better than 1% requires specific calibration before ordering.

Generic sensors are randomly checked for accuracy, however no report is generated. If you require a calibration certificate, please make sure you request this before ordering.

A connection and data transfer occurs every 10 minutes, giving you live wind speed anywhere.

Yes, check with WINDCRANE for compatibility and options.

There’re two options:

  • Electrical mains powered (WINDCRANE mini & max)
