Lufft VENTUS Passes HALT Test


Lufft's VENTUS anemometer was recently put through the HALT test, which is designed to destroy a wind sensor by pushing it to the limits of heat, cold, vibration and corrosion, according to the company.

The sensor survived temperatures between -95 degrees C and +95 degrees C, and the maximum vibration and corrosive limits of the test. Lufft has plans to improve the sensor to reach -120 degree C to +120 degree C limits of functionality.

The HALT test is performed in a special wind tunnel that projects high-velocity wind toward the sensor in three vector directions simultaneously, according to the company.
