Ammonit plans to introduce its new data logger at WINDPOWER 2011, which takes place May 22-25 in Anaheim, Calif.
Meteo-40 meets MEASNET site assessment standards and can be used for wind site assessment, wind farm monitoring, climate research, as well as solar assessment and solar monitoring, according to the company.
The new data logger has digital channels for smart sensors such as the Thies TMR wind vane, and high-sensitivity analog input for temperature sensor PT100 and RS-485 to connect up to eight smart sensors in parallel, according to the company.
The data exchange between the data logger and a PC is done via a HTTPS connection, e-mail, satellite or direct interface. As a result of the dual-processor Linux design, the whole measurement system can be operated with a 50 W solar panel, the company says.
Ammonit has three configurations of Meteo-40 available: Meteo-40S, Meteo-40M and Meteo-40L.
