How much money and time do you invest in site assesment?
What about data security?

Dear Reader,

Resource assessment campaigns are time and money consuming. What happens if your measurement data is manipulated or even stolen before preparing the feasibility study? Data security is crucial and cannot be ignored today.

The German standard TR6 rev. 9 ("Determination of wind potential and energy yield") underlines the data quality check. According to TR6, it is essential to prove the integrity of measurement data. Measurement data has to be transparent and traceable from recording to data processing.

Furthermore, the MEASNET site assessment guideline focuses on data quality referring to data authenticity and integrity. The successor of the IEC 61400-12-1 will also include data quality standards for measurement campaigns referring to data security preventing any manipulation.

Ammonit offers traceable data security from recording to data processing by using latest security standards: Digital Signature and Encryption acc. to the OpenPGP standard.

Watch our video about the Security Features implemented in our Meteo-40 data loggers and our online monitoring platform AmmonitOR:

Our Meteo-40 data loggers and our online monitoring platform AmmonitOR can digitally sign data. A valid digital signature indicates that the data was created by a known sender (authenticity) and was not manipulated on transit (integrity).
