Wind Monitoring System – Chartwell House
We recently fitted a wind system with SpaceLogger.W10 data logging functionality and local WS-15A display at the National Trust property Chartwell House, Winston Churchill’s former residence. This presented some unique challenges. We needed to ensure the system was discrete and didn’t damage the appearance of this beautiful building but also supply accurate and reliable wind data. After a site visit we found a location on the building roof that would supply accurate wind data, we then ensured the mast mounting and fixtures were coloured to match the surroundings.
The WindSonic Sensor is ideal for such an application its compact size ensures it blends in with its surroundings and its ultrasonic technology supplies accurate wind speed and direction data and requires minimal maintenance and thus no invasive trips on the roof of this valuable building.
We understand that the new Chartwell cat Jock VI who moved into the building in March of this year watches the wind readings with interest.
