The Orion LT offers a wind-only weather station, measuring wind speed and wind direction with ultrasonic technology for high accuracy and stability. (The Orion LT can also be used as an additional sensor option with any CWS weather station in conjunction with the Weather MicroServer.)
Both wind speed and direction are measured using an advanced ultrasonic sensor. The sensor uses ultrasound to determine horizontal wind speed and direction. The array of three equally spaced ultrasonic transducers on a horizontal plane is an ideal design which ensures accurate wind measurement from all wind directions, without blind angles or corrupted readings.
The wind sensor has no moving parts, which makes it maintenance free. The measurement range for wind speed is from 0 to 135 mph (0 to 60 m/s) and for wind direction from 0 to 360°.
