WindSonic Solid State Wind Speed and Direction Sensor

WindSonic Solid State Wind Speed and Direction Sensor

Quick Overview

The Windsonic solid state anemometer provides wind speed and direction data into one serial stream or two analogue outputs. The WindSonic unit is a robust, lightweight (0.5kg) sensor with a corrosion-free polycarbonate blend housing. The WindSonic M is a durable, hard-anodised aluminium alloy housing with an optional heating system allowing for operations down to -40C. Both WindSonic units are suitable for use in harsh marine environments and use an ultrasonic measurement principle that will avoid the problems caused by the fragility of cups and propellers. Units are supplied with mating connector and WindCom software for logging data directly from the serial output.
