Fully Wireless Anemometer System


Today, Anemometers (wind-speed meter) could be installed on the Crane’s Jib and are used to report wind-speed information to the crane’s operator. RF-Networks Anemometer solution is cost-effective fully wireless device – installation procedure is easy and takes less than 30 minutes. The solution includes a mobile app that presents real-time wind-speed info, and alerts when the wind-speed exceeds the working safety conditions. The mobile app can also present 6 hours wind-condition forecast and one-year historical wind measurements. In addition, it provides a map screen with the cranes’ locations view with color indication on real-time speed conditions. The anemometer accuracy is 0.1%-0.2%. The solution is built together with PushTheB.com

How it Operates

  • The solution consists of one RFN Tag that is connected to anemometers, and one RFN GW.
  • The RFN Tag and the anemometer are located on the Jib
  • The Gateway is located in the operator cabin.
  • The RFN Tag sends the wind-speed data via RF to the Gateway every 1 second. 
  • The Gateway transmits the info to the application on the cloud.
  • The application support the following functions:
    • Analyze the data and if identify that the wind is above safety condition, it sends text alerts
    • Present the real-time wind-speed info of the cranes  
    • Present wind speed forecast of 6 hours 
    • Present history of 3 or 6 hours, and up to one-year
