Vaisala WINDCAP® Ultrasonic Wind Sensor WMT700 measures wind speed and direction and sends the measurement results to data acquisition systems. WMT700 forms part of the Vaisala weather measurement offering suitable for systems and stand-alone installations.
The WMT700 series consists of three product types with different measurement ranges: WMT701, WMT702, and WMT703. Additionally, you can select heating functions that shield the array and/or the transducers from ice and snow build-ups in cold climates. The WMT700 series wind sensors are based on the advanced, patented Vaisala WINDCAP® wind measurement technology that ensures accurate results in all wind directions. The effects of temperature, humidity, and pressure are also fully compensated.
Since the WMT700 series wind sensors have no moving parts, they are virtually maintenance-free. The performance of the sensors does not degrade with wear nor is it affected by natural contaminants such as salt, dust or sand. The WMT700 series wind sensors support a wide range of communication options.
