    Anemometer Calibration
    All anemometer rotors are individually calibrated in our wind-tunnel at a single windspeed (9m/s) by comparison to one of a set of reference rotors which are themselves traceable to national standards.

    The reference rotors are themselves periodically re-calibrated at reputable wind tunnels (such as those in the MEASNET group).

    MEASNET and NIST calibrations are also available to special order for customers requiring them (such as those with applications in the wind power sector).

    Note that few other anemometer manufacturers provide an individual calibration as standard for every anemometer they make.

    More information:

  • Anemometer Classification and IEC 61400-12-1
  • Selecting A100 Series Anemometers for Wind Turbine Testing and Wind Farm Site Assessment
  • Independent Research Reports
  • FAQ question/answer: What is the difference between your "factory calibration" and a "MEASNET calibration" ?
  • FAQ question/answer: How can Slope/Offset figures be obtained from Calibration Data (Green RCD-10 Cal Sheet) for Anemometers/Rotors?

  • Selecting a Wind Tunnel and Calibration:
    We consider that a low-turbulence wind tunnel with uniform flow and a test section (cross-section) of at least 60cm x 60cm (24in x 24in) is the minimum required for meaningful/accurate calibrations of our anemometers. The MEASNET/IEC calibrations we offer all use wind tunnels meeting/exceeding these requirements.

    Please contact our sales office for calibration information on our anemometers (and/or for a copy of the independent summary report on the classification of our anemometers).
