ANEMOMETER

An anemometer is a device that calculates the speed of airflow. It typically has several cup shaped parts attached to it to capture the airflow and the faster the spin of these cups the stronger the airflow, the number of rotation will be used to calculate the speed of the airflow.

Where and how are they used

Anemometers come in different forms depending on the application they are used for. Below are 4 common types:

Fan outline with circle motion next to it

Vane Anemometers

Fan outline with hotwire next to it

Thermal Anemometers

Fan outline with circuit device next to it

Thermal Anemometers with Velocity/Temperature Profiling

Fan outline with icon next to it

Cup Anemometers

Vane anemometers

These anemometers are designed to work in situations where the airflow is in one direction constantly. Therefore applications for measuring the airflow in ventilation shafts are impressively accurate. They normally come with additional sensors for measuring humidity, temperature, dew point and logging of the data.

Thermal anemometer

Or also known as hot wire anemometer, use a very fine wire, which is around a few microns thick, which is heated up. As passing airflow blows against the hot wire, it will cool it down. While this device has a very fine and delicate wire, the results are very accurate. 

Thermal Anemometers with Velocity/Temperature Profiling

Thermal anemometers with an additional profiling feature have some of the smallest sensors on board. common usage for this type of anemometer is in wind tunnels for circuit boards and heat sink checks.

Cup Anemometer

One of the earliest and simplest forms of the anemometer, the cup anemometer consists of 3 - 4 cups attached to the end of the device whereby the cups will capture the passing air and turn. The number of rotations with the cups will determine the wind speed.
