    Designed and manufactured by Gill Instruments in the UK, WindObserver ultrasonic anemometers are well proven with over 15 years’ service worldwide over a range of demanding applications. 

    Quality and high performance measurement is assured across the WindObserver range. WindObserver anemometers have sophisticated error checking and fault reporting built-in. An instrumentation status code is transmitted alongside the measurement outputs to confirm correct operation ensuring confidence in reported data. Calibration (option) traceable to national standards available on all models (except WindObserver IS).   

    WindObserver anemometers hold many approvals and certifications for critical applications including those required for hazardous areas (including offshore), marine, wind turbine control and airport wind measurement.   

    Output protocol options for WindObserver include RS422/RS485 full duplex/half duplex for WindObserver 65, 70, 75, 90 and II.   WindObserver IS, intrinsically safe anemometer, RS422 & RS232 from power supply and interface. RS422 from anemometer.

    Environmental protection to IP66 with robust stainless steel construction across all WindObserver models.  

    Gill ultrasonic technology provides accurate and reliable wind speed and direction data using solid state technology, with no moving parts, reducing the need for maintenance and making WindObserver ideal for harsh weather environments and remote locations.
