The wireless wind speed display (T24-DWS) is a surface mounting display module for exclusive use with the wireless wind speed transmitter module (T24-WSSp).  This complete wireless wind speed system provides high accuracy measurement and offers a quick and effective solution for monitoring wind speeds in a wide variety of applications and industries, particularly suited to the lifting and handling industry.

The T24-WSSp, is designed for mounting to moving booms, with a pivot design to ensure the sensor remains upright.  It uses a low power mode between transmissions to maximise battery life in the field whilst offering class leading wireless coverage range of up to 800 metres (2,600 ft).  The display module is externally powered and comes complete with 3m cable and ball jointed cab mount/wall mount.

The T24-WSSp features a high quality 3-cup rotor anemometer providing measurements in m/s and mph. Forming part of the T24 modular telemetry system, the data transmitted by the T24-WSSp can be received by multiple T24 displays as well as analogue outputs, relay modules and computer interfaces.

The in-cab display shows a rolling average wind speed which is updated at the transmission rate of the wind speed sensor, (which has a default of once per second).
The display, which has an optional backlight, can be toggled between m/s and mph and an alarm limit can be configured to activate an internal relay and buzzer to control external equipment.   Measuring wind speeds between 5 mph to 125 mph the T24-WSSp is powered from internal D Cell batteries.

The system is supplied pre-calibrated with the sensor ‘paired’ to the display making it a simple and easy out-of-the-box solution. Additional configuration is also available, if required with the use of a T24 base station.

A large LED display is also available to display and view data from the T24 wireless wind speed sensor.

A. Wind speeds of between 5 mph – 125 mph

Q. How do I calibrate the system?

A. The in-cab display and wind speed sensor is supplied pre-calibrated.

Q. What measurements do the wind speed sensor and display (T24-WSSp and T24-DWS) provide?

A. The high quality 3-cup rotor anemometer provides measurements in m/s and mph on the display

Q. How do I get the software for the Wind Speed System?

A. The free T24 Toolkit software is downloadable from the Mantracourt website.

Q. How do I power the wind speed sensor?

A. The T24-WSSp is powered from internal batteries (pair of D cells).

Battery life in low power mode generating results every second:

  • Pair of D cells constantly on - 1 year
  • Pair of D cells 12 sessions per day of 10 mins - 6 years
     
Q. What kind of approvals does the wind speed sensor have?

A. Radio Equipment Directive (RED), FCC, EMC, IC approval

Q. What is the warranty period on this device?

A. All T24 products from Mantracourt Electronics Ltd., ('Mantracourt') are warranted against defective material and workmanship for a period of one (1) years from the date of dispatch.

Q. What are the dimensions of the cased Wind Speed Sensor?

A. 165 mm x 270 mm x 84 mm excluding pivot.
