Infrastructure

The FT7 Series of wind sensors powered by Acu-Res® Technology are very strong, corrosion resistant wind sensors designed to give many years of reliable service in buildings, railways, bridges and other types of critical infrastructure.

FT sensors are currently installed on buildings in London, Bahrain and Tokyo, and on high speed rail tracks in Japan and China.

In design, development and manufacture everything possible is done to ensure that the product is reliable, accurate and consistent. The sensor has no moving parts and does not need re-calibration. This eliminates the costs of inspection and re-calibration. FT sensors provide a ‘fit and forget’ wind sensing solution.

Corrosion

Ideal for offshore wind turbines and all marine applications.

Tested and proven:

  • Corrosion resistant: ISO 9227 (2006) & IEC12944 (1998)
  • Corrosion class: C5-M High
  • Corrosion test in neutral salt spray atmosphere for 1440 hours

Rain, Mist, Fog and Humidity

Passed:

  • DEF STAN 00-35 Test C26 - Fog intensity of 1 to 2 ml/80cm² for one hour
  • DEF STAN 00-35 Test CL27 - Rain at 200mm for one hour
  • IP67 - Submerged in 1 metre depth of water for 30 minutes
  • EN 60068-2-78 (2002) - Stationary relative humidity +93% for 240 hours
  • EN 60068-2-30 (2005) - Cyclic humidity - Six 24 hour cycles, upper temperature 55°C

Sand & Dust

Sand and dust resistant: DEF STAN 00-35 CL25 (2006) sand particles for 3 hours and dust particles for 3 hours, at 29 m/s air velocity, concentration 1.1g/m³.

Hail

Hail resistant: EN 61215 (2005) 10 hail stones, 7.5 grams each show at the sensor at 23 m/s.

Freezing Rain and Ice

Designed for harsh winters, the FT7 Series wind sensors have an in-built heating system that gives total temperature control. Ice-resistant to MIL-STD-810G:
  • Ice-resistant: Sensor remains ice-free when freezing rain applied in a chamber with temperature -14°C, wind speed 15m/s.
  • De-icing: Sensor exposed to freezing rain in air flow of 15m/s and -14°C. Ice built up to 45mm. Heaters switched on. Airflow and temperature unchanged. The sensor was ice-free in under 15 minutes.

Altitude

  • Passed: EN60068-2-13 (1999) 4 hours at a constant low pressure typical to 3000 metres above sea level.
  • Additional tests in a dedicated altitude wind tunnel have shown that the sensor measures accurately up to 4000m.

Vibration

3 axis Sinusoidal and Random Vibration.

Passed:
  • EN 60068-2-6 (2008)
    5-500 Hz, 1 octave/min sweep range for sinusoidal vibration.
  • EN 60068-2-64 (2008)
    5-500 Hz, 90 mins per axis, 0.0075g²/Hz for random vibration.

Drop

Drop resistant: EN 60068-2-31 (2008) dropped 6 times at different angles from 1 metre onto steel faced concrete.

Ingress

Passed: EN 60529:1992+A2:2013 - Sealed to IP66 and IP67
  • Exposed to a dust chamber for 8 hours.
  • Submerged in 1 metre depth of water for 30 mins.
  • Sprayed by powerful water jets at 100 litres per minute from a distance of 2.5 metres.

Heat and Cold

Operating Temperature: -40°C to +85°C

Passed:
  • EN 60068-2-1 (2007) - 16 hours of cold air at -40°C.
  • EN 60068-2-2 (2007) -  16 hours dry heat at +85°C.
  • EN 60068-2-14 (2009) -  74 hours of heat and cold, 16 temperature cycles from -40°C to +70°C.

Solar Radiation

24 hours of UV radiation with an ambient temperature of 55°C, irradiance of 1120 W/m².

Passed: EN 60068-2-5 (2000)
