WindSonic

Ultrasonic anemometer 2 axis

Features

WindSonic is a robust, low cost ultrasonic wind sensor with no moving parts. This 2-axis ultrasonic wind sensor offers maintenance-free wind speed and direction monitoring for true ‘fit and forget’ wind sensing.

The Gill WindSonic is a genuine low cost alternative to conventional cup and vane or propeller wind sensors, with all of the advantages of solid-state ultrasonic technology. With no moving parts to jam, break or wear out, this ultrasonic wind sensor is ideal for use in harsh weather conditions.

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.
