Remote Sensing Systems for professional wind measurement

Remote sensing systems measure the wind conditions vertically with instruments installed on the ground. Wind speed and wind direction data even from rotor blade tip-height is available to calculate wind power for the whole rotor blade area. There are two popular remote sensing types: SoDAR (Sonic Detection and Ranging) and LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging). SoDAR instruments measure wind conditions by means of sound; LiDAR instruments use light to determine wind conditions.

Ammonit cooperates with well-known manufacturers to offer top-level equipment. With the AQ510 Wind Finder, Ammonit offers the latest SoDAR technology; with ZephIR leading LiDAR systems on the market. Learn more about AQ510 Wind Finder and ZephIR LiDARs. Our remote sensing systems meet the latest standards. Use our systems to get accurate measurement results.

BBB Umwelttechnik considers the AQ510 to be the best SoDAR system on the market. In the verification process, AQ510 has performed even better than some LiDAR systems, explains BBB. Additionally, BBB underlines the low manufacturing tolerance of the AQ510, which ensures continuous top quality measurements.

DNV GL also performed a performance verification of AQ510. The SoDAR successfully passed all acceptance criteria with good results. DNV GL considers AQ510 to be able to reproduce cup anemometer wind speed and wind vane directions in simple terrain.

Ecofys reports overall high correlation and exact linear regression fit, which indicate that the SoDAR is functioning properly with high accurracy. Ecofys judges that the AQ510 is suitable for field measurements as a replacement of cup anemometers in flat terrain.
