WindSonic 75 is a robust, low cost ultrasonic wind sensor with no moving parts. This 2-axis ultrasonic wind sensor offers extremely low maintenance wind speed and direction monitoring. The sensor weighs only 0.5kg and is formed from a corrosion-free polycarbonate construction. WindSonic 75 can be operated in harsh environmental conditions, delivering wind speed and direction data via one serial or two analogue outputs without fear of damage often associated with fragile cup or propeller wind sensors.

WindSonic 75 applications include offshore and marine environment monitoring when higher wind speeds are often encountered. Its’ durable corrosion free casing makes it ideal for locations when on-site maintenance isn’t practical or too costly.
