  • New IEC-Compliant Side Mount Booms

    The current IEC 61400-12-1 standard, which came into effect in 2005, establishes a minimum sensor rise of 15 times the diameter of the horizontal arm of side mount sensor booms. Mounting anemometers and wind vanes this distance above the boom ensures that the measurement uncertainty resulting from flow distortions around the boom arm are kept below 0.5% of the measured value. With an aim toward ...
