Skywatch® WWS

This instrument has been developed for the protection of people and property who or which may be subject to strong winds.

It is composed of 2 elements:

  • A wind force display unit with 4 programmable alarm thresholds (2 min and 2 max).

  • A multi-directional wind turbine (wind sensor) which measures the wind horizontally and vertically (turbulence behind the obstacle). The turbine transmits its signal magnetically to a transducer (wind sensor) located at the end of the connecting cable connected to the display. This transmission system simplifies installation.

Skywatch® WWS is particularly recommended for:

  • Building sites: scaffolding, cranes, etc.

  • Public buildings: schools, sports fields, etc.

  • Sports and leisure: campsites, mobile homes, marinas, aerodromes, lifts, sports competitions, etc.

Four values ​​can trigger the alarm. These values ​​can be determined on the rising or falling edge and the alarm duration is adjustable for each alarm.

The relay outputs of kits 2 and 3 (described below) are four in number. The idle state of each relay can be selected between no (open) and nc (closed). The user can assign each alarm with its relay output.
