Windfinder - Model AQ500C - Mobile and Self-Sufficient Sodar System
No matter where the wind goes, our mobile and self-sufficient Sodar system AQ500 Windfinder can go there too. It measures wind conditions up to a height of 200 metres with the help of sound waves. Sodar technology operates in a similar fashion to sonic radar, detecting even the slightest wind well above the highest blade of any hub. So you can be sure to get all the bankable data needed without any uncertainty.
One switch start-up
The AQ500isa simple solution that you can set-up with no previous experience after having attended the AQSystem technical training. All you have to do is position it and activate the power switch. The system is already pre-calibrated at our factor
Instant wind data
Time is a key factor in every wind project. The AQ500 has proven to be the most efficient method for measuring wind conditions, eliminating the need for permits, subcontractors or construction.
Instead you can just make sure that the rest of the project run just as smoothly as the site assessment.
With the AQ500 you can start your siteassessment at least 6 months earlier than when using the more traditional met mast. This will not only get your turbines spinning faster but wil I also turn your investment into to a more profitable venture.
The AQ500 is lightweight and small enough to be transported by car. When an installation is challenged by some more diverse terrain, the four lifting hooks on top of the trailer will allow a helicopter to transport the AQ500toeventhe most remote of locations.
As the AQ500must be able to work anywhere, its energy requirements are low. The system only needs a solar panel to recharge the powerful battery bank. During the winter months when there is little sunshine the small power generator acts as a back-up.
