RainWise, Inc. Announces New Davis-Compatible Ultrasonic Wind Sensor

Continuing the progression of their top of the line wind sensors, LCJ Capteurs provides us another superior ultrasonic wind sensor, the Sonic-Anemo-DZP. This fully autonomous ultrasonic wind sensor powers itself through its built in solar panel requiring no additional power. It is well suited for remote installations where power consumption makes a difference. The "Plug & Play" LCJ Sonic-Anemo-DZP connects directly to a pulse or potentiometer input. It is compatible with Davis Weather Stations such as the Vanatge Pro 2, and replaces Davis anemometer model numbers: 7911, 7913, 7914 and 6410.

None of the LCJ ultrasonic wind sensors have moving parts, which allows for accurate measurements even of the lightest winds and greatly increases reliability. The Sonic-Anemo-DZP has an update interval of once per second and has an operating temperature range of -15°C to 55°C (5°F to 131°F). These sensors are produced with marine grade and corrosion free materials, proving to be a natural fit for operation in harsh and extreme environments.

LCJ Capteurs started designing and manufacturing ultrasonic wind sensors in 1999 for the marine industry. Their current range of wind sensors caters to an assortment of demands including weather stations, industrial uses, security and agricultural applications. In recent times, these wind sensors have gained attention and are being used in innovative ways such as autonomous sailboats, wind powered land vehicles, theme park risk management, smart buildings and artistic exhibits like the Water Mirror Fountain exhibit in Nantes, France.

These ultrasonic wind sensors are exclusively distributed in the North American region through RainWise, Inc.
