    Society. Components. Wind turbines contain many parts. The anemometer tracks wind speeds and transfers measurements from the wind vane to the controller, a component which starts the turbine at wind speeds between 8 to 16 miles per hour and shuts off...
    Blades (wind turbine) - (19 companies) 2 R meters every full rotation. The blade tip speed is then 2 R/t and this can be divided by the wind speed from a digital anemometer to give a field measurement of the tip-speed ratio. Manufacturers often produce several different wind...
  • Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps and Systems-Image
    Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps and Systems - (178 companies)
    Rotary vane vacuum pumps and systems move media through the pump using a rotating assembly in the pumping chamber. Typically, there are two or more rotating vanes that move the media from inlet to outlet. Rotary vane vacuum pumps are positive...
    Ultrasonic Instruments - (253 companies)
    Ultrasonic instruments use beams of high frequency, short wave signals to inspect, monitor, and measure materials and components. Ultrasonic energy is introduced into tested materials or components and then retrieved for subsequent analysis...
    Ultrasonic Transducers - (163 companies)
    Ultrasonic transducers send and receive waves for many types of sensing. Examples include distance, proximity, level, nondestructive evaluation, web break detection, counting, and security applications. Ultrasonic transducers send and receive waves...
    Ultrasonic Linear Position Sensors and Switches - (88 companies)
    Ultrasonic linear position sensors and switches use ultrasonic waves in combination with light and frequency readings for position and displacement sensing. Ultrasonic linear position sensors and switches use ultrasonic waves in combination...
    Wind Tunnels - (17 companies)
    Wind tunnels allow the characterization of the aerodynamic attributes of objects in a controlled system by creating airflow through a closed passage. They are primarily used in the study of how aircraft, trains, automobiles, boats, and structures...
    Ultrasonic Cutting and Welding Equipment - (69 companies)
    Ultrasonic welding and cutting machines melt areas with an arc and then use a high-velocity, high-temperature ionized gas to make cuts. Ultrasonic cutting and welding equipment are often used in the manufacture of fabric goods. They are also used...

Conduct Research

Whether mechanical, ultrasonic or laser wind measurements: all measuring methods have technical limits. While for mechanical wind sensors the measuring element - cups and vanes - itself predominantly produces a disturbance in the flow field, for ultrasonic anemometers a disturbance can be caused...
