Ultrasonic wind sensor from FT Technologies

Since 2017, Spica Technology has been a FT Integration Partner and cooperated with FT Technologies Ltd. This means that we develop software and electronics to allow ultrasonic high-performance FT wind sensors to be retrofitted to ageing wind turbines without changing the software for the turbines.

Besides our own Spica electronics and software development, we give the aftermarket the possibility to upgrade their turbines with FT sensors.

Discuss the possibilities of upgrading your ageing turbine with FT sensors, contact our wind specialists today.

The FT7 Series from FT Technologies | Ultrasonic anemometers

The FT7 Series ultrasonic anemometers from FT Technologies are the world's toughest wind sensors on the market. The unique one of a kind wind sensor keeps on working in many adverse environments where traditional sensors fail. The FT7 Series is highly resistant to corrosion, sand, dust, ice and solar radiation which makes it maintenance-free. Furthermore, a thermostatically controlled heating system ensures that the sensor can stay ice-free.

The FT7 Series ultrasonic anemometers have been used on wind turbines for over 10 years. In this time countless wind sensors have been installed around the world. Over 70% of all offshore wind turbines are fitted with a wind sensor from the FT7 Series - and the sensors are used by 12 of the largest manufactures in the world.
