Bigfoot Crane Company recently introduced its new crane wind meters for North America. The company’s Windy Smartphone Anemometers uses wind speed and direction sensors to wirelessly transmit real-time wind and temperature data to smartphones or tablets. A free app is available that provides instant data of current, average, and maximum wind speed, direction, and temperature. History graphs may also be viewed.
The Windy Smartphone Anemometer also features data refresh every 2 seconds, 2 years of sensor battery life, and a programmable wind speed alarm. The wind tunnel-calibrated sensor is made with a stainless steel ball bearing and replaceable cups.
Bigfoot has partnered with Navis Anemometers to develop this line of wind meters for North America. The company touts a simple installation process, and says the smartphone app is easy to operate. Users can connect the Bluetooth-wireless anemometer with the Windy smartphone app.
“Bigfoot’s Windy Smartphone Anemometers are built with simple installation, calibration, ease of use, and a new smart phone application. Bigfoot is a leader in anemometers,” said Jamie Sheaff, president of Skylink Services.
Both the anemomter and the display unit feature magnet brackets, which allow flexibility in attaching the devices to metal surfaces. The anemometer and display are pre-configured to communicate with one another; no set-up necessary. Once the display unit and the smart phone app are set with the desired safety parameters and the anemometer unit number is entered into the smartphone app, the app will parallel the display unit at distances up to 100 meters.
