FT Technologies' new FT742-DM ultrasonic wind sensor is currently undergoing an extreme weather test at the summit of Mount Washington in the USA.
Having recently undergone a series of tests using powerful water jets, our newest models, the FT722 and FT742 ultrasonic wind sensors, have achieved an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of IP66.
In order to meet growing demand from our customers, and to improve the working environment for our staff, FT Technologies has moved to a brand new factory and established a new head office in Sunbury-on-Thames, southwest London.
FT Technologies has won two 2016 Offshore Excellence Awards for Best Turbine Control Wind Sensor Manufacturer – UK, and Most Innovative Air Sensor Technology – Acu-Res®.
FT Technologies launches its new FT7 Series of ultrasonic wind sensors at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) exhibition in Orlando, Florida.
FT’s acoustic resonance wind sensors have a good reputation for their ability to withstand extreme cold, ice and other harsh climates.
FT will be supplying its wind sensors to Met Masts installed along the 10 mile track at Hakskeenpan in Northern Cape Province S. Africa and to the test track at Newquay in Cornwall.
Two heated FT702LT wind sensors were installed on a met mast near Quebec Canada between January and May 2013. Over the test period nine significant heavy icing events were reported.
