Gill Instruments will be displaying the WindObserver Intrinsically Safe (IS) ultrasonic anemometer and new low voltage power and communications interface (LVPCI) at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) from the 5th-8th May2014 in Houston, Texas, stand 9847.
OTC is the world’s foremost event in the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production and environmental protection.
Gill recently added IECEx to existing safety ATEX certification already held for its market leading ultrasonic anemometer, which is widely used across the world. With IECEx, WindObserver IS can now provide high quality data and reliability to applications including hazardous or explosive atmosphere applications throughout the USA.
The lightweight, robust, 2-axis anemometer provides 0-75 m/s wind speed and 0-359° wind direction, requires no maintenance and is now available with a new low voltage power communications interface (LVPCI).
The LVPCI is a new alternative to the standard Power Communications Interface (PCI) and both can be installed with the WindObserver IS, which is the only ultrasonic anemometer approved for installation inside hazardous or explosive atmospheres. The system provides wind speed and direction data for use in producing offshore meteorological observations in accordance with UK CAA CAP 437.
