Wind Sensors

Solid-state LCJ Capteurs wind sensors use electro-acoustic transducers to determine the transit time differences among waves induced by air flowing along the orthogonal axes.

Image placeholder title

Four independent measurements determine the wind speed and its direction in relation to the reference axis. The sensors are lightweight, compact and don’t require much electrical power. Available in a variety of configurations, they are shockproof, resistant to strong gusts, resilient to gyroscopic effect and sensitive in light winds. Starting at $599.
