WINDETH is an Ethernet anemometer which is able to measure wind speed and direction for display in a Web browser. When limits are exceeded the WINDETH can send an alarm email. The TX20ETH can also communicate with 3rd party applications via TCP, using ASCII, SNMP and MODBUS TCP protocols . It can also send messages to a remote server via simple HTTP GET requests. Values from WINDETH as well as setup are easily accessible even in the XML format. The FREE Wix chart/data logging software is also available.

WINDETH is an Ethernet anemometer consisting of the wind sensor and a separate Ethernet interface unit. It is connected directly to a computer network (Ethernet). Measured data can be processed automatically or by operating personnel. Wind speed and direction is displayed on the internal web interface. When limits are exceeded v is able to notify the operator via e-mail.

The wind sensor mesures wind speed and wind direction and sends the data to the base station via a 10m cable. The sensor can be mast mounted or fixed to a flat surface - mounting fittings are included.

For automatic operation and processing, WINDETH is able to communicate by a data channel via TCP, using protocols SNMP and MODBUS TCP. It can also send messages to a remote server via simple HTTP GET requests. Values from WINDETH as well as setup are easily accessible even in the XML format.

Many of TCP/IP family protocols are supported. Available are for example: TCP data channel, SNMP and ModBus protocols, e-mail sending, HTTP GET and POST automatic sending to a remote server. Measured-out values and settings parameters are also available in XML format etc.

All settings can be adjusted via WEB interface. Brief help pops up for all parameters.

WEB page

It is possible to easy monitor the wind speed and direction over the ethernet interface. The pages are secured by means of user name and password. It is possible to setup a separate password for the configuration and another one for the display of current values.

XML file

It is also possible to import all the values from WINDETH in the XML file format. This format is easy to process by the application or to read by the web service.

WAP page for PDA of mobile phone

WINDETH contains a simple WAP page with measured data. It is possible to open this page in a mobile phone, PDA or another mobile device. Thus the current status of the device can be viewed whenever needed.

Inserting the current values into the WEB sites (HTTP GET)

WINDETH enables you to periodically call a script (for example PHP or ASP) on a selected WEB server and to hand the measured values and other parameters over to the server in the form of HTTP GET parameter. Thus you can easily include the currently measured values directly into your WEB site.

Current values handing-over to the WEB service (HTTP POST, SOAP)

WINDETH is also able to periodically send the measured data as HTTP POST in the format of XML SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol). This way is ideal for further processing of the measured values by the WEB service waiting in a server on the Internet or Intranet. This data in the XML format can be easily processed, e.g. in the.NET or PHP environment – there is no need to program any communication protocol, etc. The only thing than needs to be done is to process the delivered XML file.

SNMP protocol

The SNMP protocol is used in large companies for the centralized administration and monitoring of all hardware and technologies. WINDETH is able to communicate via this protocol and, according to the setup, It sends SNMP traps when the pre-set critical limits are exceeded. It is also able to periodically send traps with current values.


WINDETH is able to inform the user via email that the critical limits have been exceeded. (Thanks to services provided by operators it is possible to forward the e-mail easily to a mobile phone as an SMS message.)

TCP or UDP protocol

WINDETH is also able to operate as the TCP client or TCP server or to communicate via UDP. An ASCII protocol is used by WINDETH in these ways of communication. This way of communication is similar to the serial link communication.


MODBUS TCP protocol

WINDETH is also able to communicate via the standard industry protocol of MODBUS TCP use by popular SCADA packages such as DAQFactory.
