Lufft Offers Free Demonstration of New Cold Weather Climate Anemometer

United States Wind Turbine Manufacturers offered free demonstration VENTUS cold climate anemometer. This unit is ideal for turbine control in harsh freezing environments.

Lufft, of Falbach Germany, has been manufacturing precision meteorological monitoring equipment for over 125 years. Last year, Lufft introduced the WS series of compact ultrasonic weather stations. The robust VENTUS model is ideal for wind turbine control applications and other instances where precise measurement of wind speed and direction is required in cold climates. The model includes a 200W heater for use in cold weather climates and covered design with heated roof. Lufft USA is offering a demonstration unit free for six months to anyone interested in testing this product in field applications. Lufft will be represented at the AWEA Small Wind and Community Exposition in Detroit, MI November 2-5 2009.


The WS200-WS600 all in one weather stations and VENTUS wind sensor models are designed with different levels of functionality to meet specific weather monitoring applications. The top-of-the-range model, WS600, measures temperature, humidity, precipitation, air pressure, wind direction and wind speed. The sensor data can be polled wirelessly through the UMB (Universal Measurement Bus) system.UMB is new technology for recording environmental data. Free firmware updates and data transfer over RS232, RS485 or CDMA modem. All UMB sensors can be polled by means of a standard protocol. To request more information contact sales@lufftusa.com
