The FT742-SM is a surface-mount wind speed and direction sensor that is designed for military and defense OEMs and systems integrators. The rugged low-SWaP unit is ideal for integration into a variety of platforms, including drones, autonomous robotics, military vehicles, and weather stations.
The sensor can be installed to ensure alignment with a standard reference such as Magnetic North, or the integrated electronic compass can be used to calculate this automatically. The FT742-SM also includes a thermostatically-controlled heater for ice-free operation.
The FT742-SM uses no moving parts and is maintenance-free, and has been extensively tested and certified for vibration and shock resistance as well as RF immunity.
