There are many anemometer uses possible today including remote wind measurement. Anemometers have a broad range of applications, and they are necessary for safe operation in many heavy industries and outdoor settings. This article gives you an overview of 5 anemometer uses for outdoor applications where remote wind monitoring greatly enhances safety. Especially if you use it as part of an integral weather monitoring solution.

Managing a tower crane is challenging since downtime can lead to project delays and possible fines. And working under unsuitable weather conditions can endanger staff members and construction equipment. Project managers must constantly balance the risk of exposing a tower crane to harsh winds against delivering a project late. Weather forecasts provide a general idea of what to expect. But, they are not updated to reflect live conditions across multiple project sites, and thus they are not a reliable tool for decision-making.

Using a precise and rugged remote wind monitoring system can provide live data for project decisions, which can be logged to justify downtime with the client. In addition, separate units across various construction sites can be connected to a single network, feeding data to a mobile application 24/7.

Idle tower cranes away from work hours are also vulnerable, as well as the partially-built project around them. A connected monitoring system can be configured to send automatic alarms if dangerous conditions are detected when no-one is around.
