Product Overview

The WindSonic Option 1 sensor used in this system has an RS232 output and has a cable distance of 15m. If cabling distances are longer than this we can quote as required.

The sensor is linked with the RS232 cable to our SpaceLogger.W8.Wireless data logger. The SpaceLogger W8 Wireless data logger date and time stamps the data storing it locally on the SD card from which it can be transmitted over the local Wi-Fi network onto our Weather File website or to PC. This gives the flexibility of being able to view the data locally on PC and/or remotely through the Weather File website. If no local Wi-Fi network is available the data can be transferred manually to PC using the SD card.

The Weather File website displays the data onto a compass rose and wind speed display that is updated in real time every 5 seconds.

Long term data, including 10 minute averaged data, is stored on the SD card in a .CSV file that can be easily downloaded into Excel for later analysis and reporting.

The system comes complete with a 0.9m anodised aluminium mounting mast and mains plug power supply. 5V UK or World plug options are available.

Systems can be leased or rented, please contact us at sales@r-p-r.co.uk for more information.

Please Note: All FlexiMet systems are supplied without lightning protection as standard. Should you require additional protection for your installation, please contact us for a quotation.
