Anemometer Calibration

ATS calibrates various types of of portable anemometer, wind speed indicators and hot wire anemometers traceable to NIST.

Our Anemometer Calibration Service Lab is equiped with a custom fabricated wind tunnel which begins the process. Our capabilities include sourcing a uniform flow rate with wind speeds from 2.5 meters / second (492 ft/min) up to 15 meters / second (2953 ft/min). This flow rate accuracy is ensured via our two reference wind anemometers with accuracies as great as ±0.6%. Each measurement is directly compared against our ISO: 17025 calibrated anemometers.Additionally, each unit is meticulous tested in both increasing and decreasing speed direction to account for any hysteresis effects. Wind Vane Anemometers are further inspected for physical defects such as burs, cracks or chips in the vane blade. Upon completion of testing, all data is then recorded and compared to manufacturer specifications or client requested specifications.

As the renewable energy market increases worldwide, so does the need for reliable and precise measuring equipment. Wind power is quickly gaining structure and providing a cost benefit alternative to other forms of energy. This need also derives the need for reliable and accurate measuring equipment. ATS has always met these demands and will continue to do so as we evolve into this new discipline.
