Gill Introduces Ultrasonic Wind Sensor with Optional Heating System

Gill Instruments, a global provider of ultrasonic wind sensors, anemometers and compact weather stations, has introduced a new compact and robust ultrasonic wind sensor. The WindSonic M sensor features a hard-anodized aluminium construction.

The optimized aerodynamic profile of the original WindSonic has also been used for the WindSonic M sensor. The new sensor contains many features of the WindObserver II and other WindSonic sensors. These sensors are being utilized for measuring the wind speed and direction in many applications. The WindSonic M sensor has advanced internal systems that improve its performance.

The WindSonic M can withstand extreme environments where ice and flying debris occur. The sensor complies with the BS EN 60945 standard designated for ‘exposed equipment.’ It covers exposure to water ingress, conducted and radiated emissions, vibration and corrosion due to mist and salt. The sensor is impact resistant to UL2218 Class 1.

WindSonic M features NMEA 0183 marine-standard output. It requires low-maintenance, as it does not require routine calibration. It also does not possess any moving parts. The sensor has optional RS232, RS422 and RS485 outputs.

The Gill wind sensor features an optional heating system. With the heated option it can function at -40ºC and when heated it can function from -40°C to +70°C.

Gill will be demonstrating the WindSonic M ultrasonic wind sensor at the Wind Power event to be held June 3-6, in Atlanta, Georgia.
