Ultrasonic Anemometer Thies – 2D:

The Ultrasonic Anemometer Thies – 2D is used to detect the horizontal components of wind velocity and wind direction as well as the virtual temperature in 2 dimensions. Ultrasonic anemometers allow the measurement of quickly changing wind parameters thanks to their acoustic measuring principle. Gust- and peak values are acquired inertia-free with the highest precision.

Output: Output of the measured values can be either digital and/or analog.

Digital Output

Analog Output

An RS485/422 is available for serial communication. It can be operated in full or half duplex mode. For the output of the measured values, there are several predefined telegrams or a user-defined telegram (e.g. wind velocity, wind direction, acoustic virtual temperature, standard deviations, covariances, status information, etc.). Wind velocity and direction and acoustic-virtual temperature are output as a current or voltage signal. Individual measuring range scaling of the analog outputs for WV and WD is selectable. The analog outputs can be switched alternatively and individually as analog voltage inputs (max. 3). These measuring values are output via the serial interface within a user-defined telegram.


For a multitude of applications, the continuous output of reliable measuring data of the wind velocity and direction is an essential requirement to the measuring system, even under meteorological extreme conditions such as icing situations. The Ultrasonic, therefore, is equipped with a sophisticated heating system. This system keeps all outer surfaces that might disturb the data acquisition in case of ice formation, efficiently at a temperature above +5°C. The transducer carrying arms belong to the heated outer surfaces, as well as additionally the ultrasonic transducer itself and the housing – depending on the model.

Please take into consideration here, that the weakest link of the chain determines the complete functionality. Instruments heating only a part of the construction, rarely show advantages compared with completely unheated instruments. The Ultrasonic can acquire measuring data with high accuracy even in an unheated state at temperatures down –40 °C. There is no temperature-depending quality of the measuring data. The heating is necessary only for avoiding ice formation on the instrument construction and the associated blockage of the run time data acquisition.
The heating system avoids effectively an icing formation – depending on the model acc. to our in-house icing standard THIES STD 012002.
