Vaavud Wind Meter
Ronstan International is proud to announce its recent acquisition of the distribution rights to the Vaavud Wind Meter in North America, Australia and New Zealand. The rugged and electronic-free Vaavud Wind Meter turns your compatible smartphone into a high-tech meteorological tool, measuring wind speeds up to 48 knots with near-professional precision.
With its compact two cup design, inspired by professional anemometers, the Vaavud Wind Meter is accurate, practical and truly pocket friendly. Reliability and long service life are assured through the use of revolutionary electronic-free technology, communicating directly with the magnetic field sensor in you smartphone.
The Vaavud App measures and displays wind speed in commonly used units of measurement. It has a neat and clean interface that shows the most important wind characteristics: the actual, mean and max wind speeds. The smoothed graph provides additional data on variations in strength as well as a quick overview. The graph supports both drag and pinch to zoom so data can be viewed in fine detail.
The Vaavud App is available free from the Apple App Store, Android Market and websites. The development team is working on adding History and Map features to the App which will allow users to easily share wind information and help each other find the perfect location for every activity.
With a wind range from 4 knots up to 48 knots (2m/s up to 25 m/s) users will be able to gauge wind speed relating to all of their desired activities. Accuracy of the Vaavud is the lower of +- 4% and 0.4 knots (0.2 m/s), with testing and calibration confirmed in the professional wind tunnel at the Technical University of Denmark. The cup anemometer design makes the Vaavud™ less sensitive to the way it is pointed: a weakness in impeller type wind meters.
