Anemometer let’s be reminded of how it works

The Anemometer is an instrument that measures wind speed and wind pressure. This type of technology is used in velocity experiments. Velocity is the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object. Anemometers calculate the wind speed around cars or airplanes, for instance.

In an aircraft system, it uses the combination of anemometer and manometer technology to determine the speed of the aircraft compared to the air. To calculate Airspeed, the manometer calibrates on the Bernouilli formula. It converts the pressure difference Pt – Ps. The airspeed indicator gives a speed Vi, which is the actual speed Vp at standard sea level pressure conditions. All this pressure information comes from the Pitot tube.

👉 Thanks to Ateq® Pitot-Static Testers, aircraft Airspeed indicators are always easily and properly calibrated… 👈

A Pitot-Static tester generates pressure or partial vacuum to simulate altitudes and speeds to test the onboard altimeter, speed indicator and if required, the angle of attack sensor. On the aircraft, all these instruments are connected externally to the Pitot tubes or the Static Ports on outside the aircraft « skin ».
