Anemoment LLC, a specialized meteorological instrument design firm located in Longmont, CO, announced today availability of its TriSonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor with an integrated pipe-mount base accommodating any ½” schedule 10 pipe. This new mounting option streamlines and simplifies integration of the TriSonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor on multi-rotor unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). With its compact size (9.1cm x 9.1cm x 5.2cm), weight (50 grams), and power (9-36 VDC@30mA) ratio, the TriSonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor is perfect for UAS deployments, while the fact that it has no moving parts, thus eliminating maintenance issues, enables it to be stationed on fixed or portable towers for real-time 3-dimensional air flow measurements.
“For me size and weight are key attributes,” states Alex Clark, Director of Advanced Sensor Systems, EngeniusMicro. “The TriSonica™ Mini is small, easy to put on our UAS 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.” (Click here to read more.)
