Since 2017, our parent company Spica Technology is an Integration Partner of FT and cooperates with FT Technologies. This means that Spica Technology develops software and electronic systems that allow the FT high performance and ultrasonic wind sensors to be installed in aging turbines without the need to change the software.
In addition to the software and electronic systems developed by Spica Technology , Spica Controls offers you and the aftermarket sector the ability to upgrade your turbines with FT7 series wind sensors from FT Technologies – the best ultrasonic anemometers on the market.
FT Technologies’ FT7 Series Ultrasonic Anemometers are the world’s toughest wind sensors. A one-of-a-kind sensor that continues to perform in the harshest environments where traditional sensors fail. The FT7 series is highly resistant to corrosion, sand, dust, ice and solar radiation, so it does not need maintenance. In addition, a thermostat-controlled heating system is responsible for keeping the sensor free of ice.
The FT7 series ultrasonic anemometers have been used in wind turbines for more than 10 years. In this time countless wind sensors have been installed around the world. More than 70% of offshore wind turbines are equipped with FT7 series sensors, and 12 of the world’s leading producers rely on them.
