WindLog™ – Wind Data Logger


The WindLog™ is a compact wind data logger designed to accurately measure and record wind speed, direction, and gust for optimizing turbine placement and performance. Includes WindSoft free software package to generate statistics, graphs, and reports.


The WindLog samples data every second and stores both average and gust readings at the user-selected interval. User selectable logging intervals range from 1-minute to 1-hour.

The 2 MB memory can record for over three months at a 1-minute rate and store over a year’s worth of wind data at a 10-minute logging interval.

The Mini-Aervane wind sensor is equipped with low friction race bearings. This reduces the threshold to approximately 1 mile per hour. Wind extension cables that separate the wind sensor from the WindLog are available in 50-foot or 100-foot length. The wind direction sensor has a 16-point resolution. Logged direction readings are averaged readings.

The data logger operates on 3 AA Alkaline or Lithium batteries. Batteries are not included. Lithium batteries are recommended for cold environments. The typical life should be around six months. When connected to a computer, the WindLog will use the USB ports power to run, further extending the battery life. The WindLog ships with a 15-foot USB cable. A USB extender is available that will allow you to extend this cable to 100-foot using CAT5e network cable.

Each WindLog ships with a free Windows-based application, WindSoft. The software uses an SQLite database to track and record wind information. While connected, WindSoft will update the database every minute. Downloaded data is integrated into the database. By combining both logged and real-time data, the WindLog can be used both online and offline. It also can export CSV files for use with Microsoft Excel or any other application that supports CSV files.

The WindLog includes a support mast that can be used with the RainWise Mono Mount and Tripod. The mast may also be attached to a support structure using U-bolts or lag screws.
