Why WR-3


Cable Free

Get rid of traditional cable-type anemometer. Avoid possible risks from machine operation. Scarlet WR-3 anemometer gives users a wireless wind monitoring solution.


Long Life

4-year battery life of wind speed sensor in all weather conditions. The sensor is designed to use in rigid environments such as dessert, ocean and mountains.


Stay Alert

Never worries about high wind. Develop a safer working environment. WR-3 Anemometer sends automatic high-volume alarms based on user settings.

Wireless Sensor

WR-3 adopts 433/868/900 MHz wireless technology to ensure better performance for barrier penetration and achieving long range transmission. The sensors start sending data when wind cups revolve. The sensor will go to sleep mode when wind cups stop revolving for more than 6 hours. Data transmit rate: every 2 seconds.

The ultra-long 400 meter transmission distance makes WR-3 a perfect gadget to help you monitor wind speed on crane and prevent from high wind risks.

Handheld Receiver

Large LCD display shows digital wind speed, temperature and beaufort chart clearly. Anti-slip rubber on two slides helps users hold the receiver in place during work. User-friendly interface and simple button design allows you to operate the device easily with only one hand.

When the wind reaches a certain speed, an alarm will be triggered, and it will continue as long as high wind is detected. The alarm buzzer located on top of the receiver can effectively warn users at the level of 90 dB.

Low Power Consumption

We use innovative low-power consumption wirless technology on WR-3. The battery power consumption is only 20-30 uA in normal condition and 35 mA peak current during data transmission. 3.6V Lithium battery with 2400 mAh capacity can run the sensor for 4 years.

4-year long battery life reduces the maintenance cost significantly. Low battery indicatior on the display monitor will show up when battery capacity is lowered than 10%.

Abu Dhabi Airports Promote Heat Safety in Working Environment

Abu Dhabi Airports has begun its heat stress campaign advising staff and contractors on how to cope with extreme weather conditions over the summer. The annual campaign will continue over the months between May and September, in line with the Abu Dhabi Occupational Safety & Health Centre (OSHAD)’ Code of Practice 11.0, on guarding against the effects of extreme temperatures in work environments during the hot summer months.



The company is holding lectures in Arabic, English, Urdu and Hindi at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Ain International Airport and Al Bateen Executive Airport, and displaying multi lingual posters and dehydration awareness charts, to equip workers with all the information they need to be able to understand and recognize heat related issues and safeguard against them.


The sessions highlight the importance of workers taking more breaks in extreme humidity, drinking water frequently, monitoring their own physical condition and that of their co-workers, and wearing light-colored, loose-fitting and breathable clothing in fabrics such as cotton. Safety bulletins on mandatory health & safety requirements are also being issued to all participants, along with sun hats, water bottles, neck cooling bandanas, sweat bands and protective arm sleeves.


Ahmed Al Shamsi, Acting Chief Operations Officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “Abu Dhabi Airports is deeply committed to ensuring that employees are protected while on the job by following high standards in safety compliance. This annual heat stress campaign is fundamental to one of Abu Dhabi Airports’ objectives “to be a leader in workplace safety”. We continuously re-calibrate our health and safety best practices to maintain a secure and hazard free work environment under all environmental conditions, and to maintain the status of being a world-class airport operator.”


In coordination with the Environment, Health & Safety team at Abu Dhabi Airports, the Gulf Center for Aviation Studies (GACS), the company’s training arm, is also training selected staff and contractors to deliver these important heat awareness sessions themselves, so that they can enforce the message and carry out best practices to control heat stress amongst their respective team members.


The heat stress campaign was initially launched in May 2012 in line with the Abu Dhabi EHSMS regulatory framework, the ‘Working in Heat Codes of Practice’, and Abu Dhabi Airports’ internal policies and procedures.

World Health Organization - How hot weather affects health

WHO/Europe Warn Extreme Heat on Health Impact

Heat can trigger exhaustion, confusion and even heart attacks, as well as worsen existing conditions, such as cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. The most vulnerable groups include elderly people, infants and children, people with lower socioeconomic status or chronic diseases, those taking certain medications and people in particular occupations outdoors (such as farming, construction, oil and gas operations and landscaping) or indoors (steel and other metal foundries, ceramic plants, mining operations, bakeries and commercial kitchens). The harmful effects of hot weather are largely preventable, however.

According to the international Emergency Events Database (EM-DAT), heat-waves were the deadliest extreme weather events from 1980 to 2011. The 2003 heat-wave caused over 70 000 excess deaths in Europe from June to September.

Climate change is expected to increase the frequency and intensity of heat-waves. For instance, with a high-level climate-change scenario/high-level carbon-dioxide (CO2) scenario, European cities – such as Athens, Budapest, Paris and Rome – can expect more than 400 deaths per year due to high temperatures in the future, according to the EuroHEAT project (funded by the European Union (EU) and coordinated by WHO/Europe).

Simple measures to reduce exposure during a heat-wave

  • Keep your home cool and keep out of the heat as much as possible.
  • Keep your body cool and drink regularly.
  • Seek medical advice if you are suffering from a chronic medical condition or taking multiple medicines.
  • If you feel unwell, try to get help and move to a cool place as soon as possible.
  • If a family member or another person has hot, dry skin, delirium and convulsions, and/or is unconscious, call a doctor/ambulance immediately. While waiting for help, move the person to a cool place, put him or her in a horizontal position and elevate the legs and hips. Remove clothing and cool the skin by placing cold packs on the neck, armpits and groin, fanning continuously and spraying the skin with water at 25–30 °C, for example. Measure the person's body temperature. Do not give acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) or paracetamol. Position an unconscious person on his or her side.
  • Seek further information on the health effects of heat and how to prevent them.

WHO recommendations and support

WHO/Europe recommends that countries and regions in Europe develop and implement heat–health action plans to prevent, minimize and react to heat-related risks to health. It supports an online tool providing medium-term forecasts of heat-waves, which can support health services' planning, and has developed a package of guidance for policy-makers, health professionals and the public on how to prevent and cope with the health effects of heat-waves.
