WindSonic is a 2-axis ultrasonic wind sensor, providing wind speed and direction data via one serial or two analogue outputs. To confirm correct operation, wind sensor outputs are transmitted together with an instrumentation status code.
WindSonic has been designed as a lightweight (0.5kg) and robust ultrasonic wind sensor, with a corrosion-free polycarbonate construction. With a true solid-state construction, WindSonic can be operated in harsh environmental conditions without fear of damage often associated with fragile cup or propeller wind sensors.
WindSonic is suitable for a wide range of wind monitoring applications, particularly suited to marine & offshore (ships, data buoys) and land based installations. With a corrosion free exterior and no moving parts, this ultrasonic wind sensor eliminates the need for expensive on-site maintenance, particularly in remote locations where access is difficult.
