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%.

UK heat wave kills around 650 people in nine days: report

London: Britain's first prolonged heat wave in seven years has taken the country by surprise, with rails buckling, shops selling out of electric fans, and scientists estimating the surge in temperature could have caused hundreds of premature deaths.


After a washout summer in 2012 and the coldest spring for over 50 years, temperatures have soared across the country due to a northward shift in the high-altitude jetstream, prompting several authorities to issue public warnings over the heat.


Figures released by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on Thursday estimated about 650 people may have died prematurely due to the heat over the past nine days, producing data based on deaths during previous heat waves.


"The excess is likely to have been overwhelmingly among the elderly, especially those over 75, some of which may have been among people who would have died just a few weeks later if there had been no heat wave," Ben Armstrong, an epidemiological statistician, told Reuters.

The research followed warnings from police about taking excessive risks to escape the heat after four people died in separate incidents on Wednesday.

A 16-year-old boy and 41-year-old man were found dead in unrelated incidents in lakes in the eastern county of Norfolk while in Cornwall, a 40-year-old woman died swimming in the sea. In the central city of Lincoln a postman died after collapsing in the heat during his round.

The soaring temperatures caused transport problems in London earlier this week when the city's busiest commuter station, Waterloo, closed four platforms due to buckled rails.

"The only bad thing about the heat wave is travelling when the tube is busy. It's so hot," said one commuter sunbathing in a park at Canary Wharf in London's docklands.

Britain's national weather service, the Met Office, said Britain reached its highest temperature of 2013 on Wednesday, with 32.2C (89.9F) recorded at Hampton, southwest of London, and forecasters are expecting the mercury to rise over coming days.

The hottest July temperature in Britain was 36.5 C, recorded in Surrey, southern England, in 2006. The hottest ever in Britain was 38.5 degrees in the southeastern county of Kent in 2003.

July is also expected to become the driest July since records began in 1766 and may beat the record set in 1955 when only one inch (30mm) of rain fell.

"We have had 9mm of rain in the UK and 4mm in England - that is well below the average for the time of year. Although it is too early to say definitely, we could be looking at the driest July on record," a Met Office spokeswoman said.

The heat has proved a boon to coastal resorts as Britons rush to the beach to cool down.

But although shops and hotels are enjoying the increase in trade, one Tesco supermarket in the popular Cornish surfing resort of Newquay has felt forced to act to preserve decency by insisting its swimwear-clad customers cover up before entering.

"In stores such as this one which are close to the beach, we ask that customers wear a T-shirt and shoes," said a spokesman in a statement e-mailed to Reuters. "We want all our customers to feel comfortable when shopping."

UK soldiers die in heat wave during training

London - Two soldiers died due to heat stress during training in the Brecon Bracons mountain

Two British soldiers died during a training exercise over the weekend as they took part in a gruelling selection process for the elite SAS unit on the hottest day of the year, military sources said on Monday.

Police and the Ministry of Defence (MoD) are investigating Saturday's deaths in the Brecon Beacons mountain range in south Wales, while a third soldier remains in a serious condition in hospital.

Military sources said the men were members of the Territorial Army, Britain's reservist force, who were hoping to join the elite Special Air Service (SAS) regiment.

The MoD refused to confirm media reports that the men collapsed from heat exhaustion while struggling through a tough selection process in temperatures of 29.5°C.

"At this stage we are not ruling anything out," a ministry spokesperson told AFP.

It is understood that live ammunition was not involved in the incident.

An unnamed army officer told the Daily Mail newspaper: "The troops are desperate to prove they are up to joining the SAS and push themselves harder and harder.

"There is going to be a huge inquiry into what happened because, on the face of it, these lads look like they've been marched to death."

The Brecon Beacons offer some of Britain's most rugged terrain, and the mountain range is regularly used for military training exercises.

In January, an army captain also believed to have been trying out for the SAS was found dead on a snow-covered mountain in the Brecon Beacons.

An MoD spokesperson said there were no plans to change "routine exercises" in light of the latest deaths in the mountains.
