The inconsistent nature of the weather is a challenge for any business with outdoor operations.
For example, when managing a construction site and operating tower cranes or any other heavy lifting equipment like crawler cranes.
These are 5 key features to help effectively monitor weather conditions for your business:
When operating outdoors with direct exposure to weather, you need to have a tough construction that is dustproof, waterproof and corrosion proof.
To face these conditions, a monitoring system like WINDCRANE Max is super tough and waterproof with an IP 67 rating - which is dustproof and raintight. You can connect multiple different sensors for monitoring almost anything from weather stations to energy, water level, pressure sensor...
The WINDRANE Mini is a smaller version which is compact and tough. It is often used in tower cranes where its installation is very easy and because it comes with a high impact case it will survive the construction environment.
All system components are contained in the enclosure and factory-wired, making it a plug-and-play device. A weather monitoring system like WINDCRANE that is ready to use under tough conditions is well suited for crane activities with direct exposure to weather.
In any outdoor operation, such as construction sites or events, weather monitors are often out of reach and remote access to the information is essential for planning. Having cloud connectivity allows access to data at any time, without running out of space.
WINDCRANE uses GSM connectivity with automatic upload to the web portal every 10 minutes, ensuring that measured data is available regardless of the project location or weather conditions. This helps construction and project managers who must keep track of several sites and know the weather conditions in all of them simultaneously.
When planning daily and weekly operations accurate and precise information is crucial to ensure maximum productivity.
Due to the importance of accurate data, all WINDCRANE systems are designed to meet the wind standards under IEC-61400 with a resolution better than 0.01m/s and accuracy better than 0.007%. The unit can track wind conditions accurately at several crane heights with a crane height selector tool and send notifications when the weather becomes dangerous.
Effective weather monitoring requires compatibility and user-friendly features:
WINDCRANE measurements and functions can be accessed from a mobile application, which means there is no need to learn new software. Project managers can check weather conditions for multiple sites saving time and becoming more productive.
Users can log in from any device with connectivity: smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktops.
Disputes on job delays with outdoor operations can be a challenge with any business, that is why having a weather monitoring system that uses the best quality parts for durability and has consistent reliable information is extremely important.
Make better decisions with a tough weather monitoring system like WINDCRANE that has over a decade of experience. Stay connected and in control of your business with reliable accurate access to live wind speed measurements, historical data and forecasts anywhere in the world.
