Dear Reader,

In 2015 we and our partner company WIND-consult founded the Ammonit Wind Tunnel GmbH to pool our competences in the field of flow measurement and meteorological measurement technology. We have designed and built a wind tunnel, which meets the high quality criteria of IEC 61400-12-1 and MEASNET. Our partner company WIND-consult has been calibrating anemometers since 1992 and has become MEASNET member in 2002.

We offer sensor calibration and classification services in the new wind tunnel as well as flow measurement and aerodynamic testing services. Contact us to learn more about the new opportunities and benefit from our new fast and attractive services.

Ammonit Wind Tunnel has been accredited by the German accreditation body (DAkkS) as independent calibration laboratory according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025. Additionally, Ammonit Wind Tunnel meets the high quality standards of MEASNET for anemometer calibration.

Ammonit Wind Tunnel successfully attended the MEASNET / IECRE Round Robin Test and became member of the MEASNET group in April 2017. The wind tunnel meets the high MEASNET requirements for anemometer calibration.

Based on its DAkkS accreditation and the MEASNET membership Ammonit Wind Tunnel is able to calibrate anemometers in its own wind tunnel according to IEC 61400-12-1.


Technical details of the wind tunnel

  • Total area covered: 144 m² (approx. 18 m x approx. 7 m)
  • Total length: 50 m (18 + 7 + 18 + 7)
  • Nozzle cross section: 1.20 x 1.20 m
  • Length of working section: 2 m
  • Contraction ratio: 9 : 1
  • Turbulence intensity: < 0.2%
  • Max. wind speed: 30 m/s
  • Capacity: 40 kW

For sensor calibration we work according DIN EN 61400-12-1 and MEASNET Anemometer Calibration Procedure Version 2.
