Product code: WSFLXTCPLCD£ POA
Developed with crane manufacturers this system connects directly to the cranes PLC system whilst also offering the benefit of a local display within the crane cab.
The system utilises a Gill WindSonic WS3 sensor with analogue output that connects to the crane PLC using RS485 duct grade cable. A spur is run from this cable to the WS-15A display that has an easy to read 40 character display which shows wind speed in a choice of measurement units and wind direction in degrees and wind arrow with cardinal points. The display is configurable so users can set a high wind speed alarm with adjustable hold off and hold on times to avoid false alerts.

The FlexiMet Tower Crane, PLC Integrated & Display System connects the sensor to a local programmable WS-15A display that can operate either an audible, visual or dual alarm when user defined parameters have been met. The wind speed alarm is configurable as either a high or a low alarm and to avoid false alarm events, there are adjustable hold off and hold on times. The 40 character easy to read display shows wind speed in a choice of measurement units and wind direction in degrees, as a wind arrow and as cardinal points.
In addition, a spur sends data directly from the Gill WindSonic 3 (WS3) sensor to the cranes PLC system in analogue format using RS485 duct grade cable.
The WS-15A display is housed in an IP65 rated enclosure making it ideal for the harsh construction site environment. The system delivers wind measurements to the appropriate industry standards including IEC-61400 as well as a full list of other weather parameters if required.
