Research grade 3-AXIS Ultrasonic Anemometer for measuring wind speed and direction. Separate head designed for minimal flow distortion and boom mounting.
The uSonic-3 Class A 3-axis ultrasonic anemometer is the most accurate and advanced sensor in the Metek product range. It has been designed for small scale turbulence measurement or mast instrumentation. The separate sensor head is optimised for boom type installations and the minimisation of influence from the sensor hardware. The sensor head is configured for minimal flow distortion within a wide acceptance angle of 320°.
With options for on-line turbulence calculations, sensor head heating, inclination sensor, and the connection of external sensors the uSonic-3 Class A provides the best possible accuracy for research applications and can be used as a core component of an eddy-flux / eddy correlation station.
