Learn how others are using the TriSonica™ Mini Wind and Weather Sensor

How are TriSonica Sonic Anemometers being used?

We engineered the TriSonica sonics 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 mobile sensing applications.
