No. AMS16-W Wind Monitoring System
It is designed to perform wind measuring on international, domestic and military airports in compliance with WMO standard No. 49 and the ICAO rules. Its main merits are: Big and rugged wind sensors, big and clear arranged display unit, digital data transmission by telephone cable or radio modem.
A typical wind measuring system consists of the following components:
Display Connecting Box
Outstation with sensor interface
Wind speed sensor
Wind direction sensor
Crossarm for wind sensors
Needle printer for endless paper with parallel interface
Mast, 10 m height, for wind sensors with span ropes,
lightning protection, ostruction light at the top of the mast,
security painted in red and white
Telephone underground cable for data transmission
Pair of Radiomodems for long distance transmission
Pair of Yagi-directional antenna for use of radiomodems
W20-1/H and W20-2/H
Wind Display AMS16-D
The airport wind display AMS16-D, distinguished by its compact design and clear display, based on a PC compatible embedded processor board (PC/104) and a 10 inch TFT colour display with 640 x 480 pixels, CFL background illuminated. The display shows wind values according to the ICAO rules and WMO standard No. 49.
digital display of 2 minute or 10 minute average
digital display of 10 minute maximum respectively Gust
digital display of cross wind (speed component crosswise to runway)
digital display of tail wind (speed component in direction of runway)
bar graph for Instant. values 0...35 m/s or 0…70 kt or 0…140 km/h
arrow on compass rose 1...360°
digital 2 or 10 minute average respectively variation
trouble of speed sensor
trouble of direction sensor
10 min average value of wind speed > 20 knots
gust > 30 knots
variation of wind direction more then 60° during the last 10 min
10 minute average of wind speed changes more then 10 knots
gust increases more then 10 knots
VRB <> ASD
280mm x 225mm x 100mm (WxHxL)
The warning-, alarm- and error-message will remain on the display till it will be set back by the menu point “conformation”. The display AMS16-D receives its data by RS232.
The wind values can be plotted as diagram on a printer by a parallel printer port with different paper speeds.
