Labcell is introducing the Decagon Devices DS-2 sonic anemometer, a low-cost, rugged, high-accuracy sensor that consumes barely any power and never needs recalibrating.

labcell anemometerDesigned for environmental, agricultural and forestry research, the DS-2 monitors wind speed, gusts and direction, outputting data to a Decagon Devices Em50 series logger or almost any other SDI-12 compatible logger.

The DS-2 is excellent for remote monitoring applications because it consumes little power, never needs recalibrating, and only requires minimal maintenance – just a wipe with a damp cloth every couple of months. And there are no moving parts or components that would be vulnerable in the event of high-speed gusts.

The DS-2 remains accurate - even at low wind speeds - with a specification of 0.30m/s or <3% of reading, whichever is greater, over a range of 0-30m/s.

Despite its high specification, the DS-2 compares favourably with other sonic anemometers currently on the market. It is also very economical to use thanks to a low power consumption allowing operation for six months or more on the five AA batteries in the Em50 series data loggers.
