FT722 wind sensor series

An acoustic resonance wind sensor designed for turbine control

This model replaces the FT702 but features improved accuracy and superior performance.

The wind sensor FT722 is ideal for retrofit. It provides a single compact solution to replacing an existing mechanical wind vane and anemometer wind measurement system. With no moving parts to wear out or degrade, turbine downtime is reduced, power output is increased, and yaw control is more efficient. With updated software and improved accuracy, it is also a fit and function replacement for the FT702LT-PM sensor.

The sensor has additional heating capacity designed to heat the metal adapter and pipe. This prevents ice from building up on the adapter and blocking air flow through the measurement cavity. It has passed over 28 environmental tests to demonstrate its' durability.

 

  

FT722-PM

for pipe mounting installation

 

FT722-FF

for flat front installation

 

The FT722 Pipe Mount wind sensor is designed for installation on the top of a pipe or post. Factory alignment of the pipe mount adapter ensures that the sensor is automatically aligned with the central axis of the turbine without error.

The FT722 Flat Front wind sensor is designed for quick and easy installation against a metal bar. The bar allows the sensor to be aligned to the central axis of the turbine without error.
