Wind Data LoggerPosted: January 9, 2017 | Author: tdistudentleb | Filed under: General | Leave a comment »
Unleash your inner enviro-energy nerd with a wind data logger. I bought this in order to test out the potential for wind energy on some land I own in Vermont. It’s probably the best all-around wind data logger out there. Small, durable, accurate.
As the manufacturer says, “It is designed to meet the needs of people considering the purchase of a wind turbine. While many people rely on wind maps to assist them with this purchase decision, these maps don’t provide the detailed information for a specific area. The WindLog allows you to do your own accurate wind study to optimize your turbine placement and its performance, once installed.”
– 2 MB of flash memory stores over a years worth of wind data at a 10 min logging interval.
– Operates on 3 AA Alkaline or Lithium batteries.
– Uses USB power when connected to a computer.
– USB port provides fast downloads.
– Free Windows software.
– Logs average speed, wind gust and average direction.
– User selectable logging intervals from 1 minute to 1 hour.
Cost $385 new. This one has only been lightly used and it has been professionally serviced to make sure that it is back in “like new” condition. Selling for $290.
