FT Technologies specialises in the design and manufacture of ultrasonic wind sensors – also known as anemometers or air-flow sensors. All our sensors are made in our factory in Sunbury-on-Thames, west London, and we export 98% of everything we make.
FT Technologies was founded in 1981 and has been in business for over 30 years. We began selling wind sensors to the wind turbine industry in 2002. We are now the industry’s largest supplier, with 10 of the world’s top wind turbine manufacturers amongst our customers. We are the market leader in the offshore wind energy sector as more than 70% of all offshore turbines in the world are fitted with an FT sensor.
What makes FT wind sensors unique is our use of Acu-Res® technology. Invented by our Executive Chairman, Dr Savvas Kapartis, and patented in 1997, Acu-Res® is a solid-state (no moving parts) technology for measuring wind speed and direction. It uses an acoustic (ultrasonic) wave which is resonated inside a small cavity. Using Acu-Res® technology results in a small, easily heated sensor which operates reliably, even under extreme weather conditions.
As well as our head office in London, we have sales offices in Denmark and the USA, and technical support in China.
FT Technologies is a privately owned company.
