What is the TriSonica™ Mini Wind and Weather Sensor?

The TriSonica™ Mini Wind and Weather Sensor is the world’s smallest and lightest 3D ultrasonic anemometer. Compact, light, and efficient, the TriSonica Mini is a highly accurate tool for atmospheric monitoring, weather reporting, and ecosystem research.

Compact

The TriSonica™ Mini can fit in your hand, measuring only 9.1cm x 9.1cm x 5.2cm.

Lightweight

The TriSonica™ Mini is very light, weighing just 50 grams; about the weight of a golf ball.

Efficient

The TriSonica™ Mini is highly energy efficient, drawing only 9-36 VDC @ 30mA power.

No Moving Parts

This enables it to be stationed on fixed or portable towers for worry-free, real-time air flow measurements.

For me, size and weight are key attributes. The TriSonica™ Mini is small, easy to put on the sUAS and it doesn’t really take much power. I can always add more instruments to my payload, especially if they all weigh nothing and they don’t take up any space.

How is the TriSonica™ Mini being used?

We engineered the TriSonica Mini to sense wind movements in three dimensions (Tri) using ultrasonic acoustic wave pulses (Sonica); thus its name, TriSonica. People immediately perceived the advantages this new product represented over bulky and cumbersome cup-and-vane anemometers. Its size, weight, power requirements, and lack of moving parts made it ideal for a variety of applications.

Aerial Applications

See how research agricultural engineer Brad Fritz uses the TriSonica™ Mini out in the field (no pun intended).

Atmospheric Profiling

Find out how Alex Clark of Engenius Micro employs the TriSonica™ Mini to determine optical turbulence and boundary layers.

Boundary Layer Studies

A solar eclipse provides a unique opportunity to observe atmospheric turbulence to an approximate step change in solar radiation.

Crane Safety

Know the wind: a simple but profound statement for crane operators. Wind is the No. 2 cause for crane accidents worldwide.

Disassembly Research

When you force batteries to fail, they can release energy very rapidly. Read how the TriSonica Mini measures the movement of air that it causes.

Methane Monitoring

Learn how Linköping University developed a high precision CH4 (methane) sensor for UAS applications.

Naval Wind Studies

The US Naval Academy tests Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), known as octocopters, equipped with the TriSonica™ Mini.

Off-Grid Monitoring

Discover how FlexSCADA integrated the TriSonica™ Mini with their own technology to monitor off-grid wind and weather data.

Remote Monitoring
