Anemoment LLC, a specialized meteorological instrument design firm, has announced integration of the company’s TriSonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor with the Flex Q-Series off-grid SCADA equipment developed by FlexSCADA, a remote monitoring technology firm. The TriSonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor (FlexSCADA edition) is a drop-in solution incorporating flexible and efficient ways to log data from the device, to interact with it, and to troubleshoot it — over a modern and efficient internet connection from either Ethernet or Narrowband LTE. Users will now have the ability to remotely monitor and evaluate winds without the cost of a large microwave backbone — doing all this with extremely low power consumption (typically as low as 0.4 watts).
“For our clients in the remote repeater market, including those monitoring telecom towers and wind turbines, reliability and power consumption are key,” states Jon Mundall, Managing Director–Engineering Services, FlexSCADA. “We have brought to the TriSonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor a new level of accessibility and transparency our customers and clients can leverage in monitoring and evaluating wind and weather.”
The TriSonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor (FlexSCADA edition) supports a variety of industry-standard protocols including SNMP, HTTP and Modbus with ful IPV4 and IPV6 support. Users can now log into their TriSonica Mini from their smartphone, their tablet, or their computer and see real-time data from their device resulting in easier deployments, integration and connectivity for operators and integrators around the globe.
In addition to providing complete wind statistics (wind speed, direction, temperature, moisture borne in the wind, dew point, and air density), the TriSonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor (FlexSCADA edition) combined with the FlexSCADA Q5 allows users autonomous monitoring and control of their micro wind turbines, enabling remote and automatic shut down of turbines in high wind situations — disconnecting it from the battery pack to protect the battery bank from harm.
Anemoment will be showcasing its wind sensing solutions for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) at the AUVSI Xponential 2019 trade show in Chicago.
