Saelig Debuts Unique Self-Powered Alarm Anemometer

Essential for aerial platform safety, this self-powered, hands-free wind-speed detector emits a loud alarm when winds exceed preset limits.

Pittsford, NY, March 15, 2012 --( Saelig Company, Inc. announces the availability of breezeSONIC™ - the world’s first self-powered alarm anemometer. Intended for use on aerial lift work platforms and other wind-sensitive structures, breezeSONIC is powered by an internal self-contained generator, so no batteries are required for operating the device. If the wind is blowing and exceeds 20mph, a 3.6kHz, 90 dB audible alarm warns of unsafe wind conditions. Since it is self-powered for ultimate reliability, there is never a dead battery to replace – there isn’t even an on/off switch. breezeSONIC’s high reliability construction features a fully-hardened beryllium-copper shaft running in self-lubricating modified Teflon bearings. No meters to read and hands free operation. Operators are unencumbered and can focus on their work.

There have been terrible tragedies when operating aerial lift platforms – or even portable major event stage constructions - above their rated wind speed. This anemometer is the ideal solution to prevent hazardous operation in high wind conditions.

Patent-pending breezeSONIC weighs only 13 oz and simply mounts on a 13 mm (0.5 in) diameter mast with cotter pin and mast set screw. The 3 ft mounting mast and clamp enables instant attachment to typical platform guard rails. breezeSONIC is compact in size - 184 mm (7.25 in) tall, with a rotor diameter of 190 mm (7.5 inches), and breezeSONIC’s 2” Conical cups measure wind speed with an accuracy of 0.2 mph from 11 to 55 mph.

breezeSONIC is made in USA by Etesian Technologies, designer and manufacturer of sophisticated self-powered wireless anemometer systems for wind turbines, cranes, fountains and other applications. breezeSONIC is available now at $499.00 (including mast and clamp) from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.
