Wind Sensor – TriSonica

When Size, Weight, and Power Matter.

The TriSonica™ Mini Wind and Weather Sensor is compact, lightweight, and efficient. It is the world’s smallest and lightest 3D ultrasonic anemometer. It is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet it is a powerful and highly accurate tool engineered for atmospheric monitoring, weather reporting, and ecosystem research.

Its size and featherweight profile make it perfect for unmanned aerial systems (UAS), while the fact that it has no moving parts, thus eliminating maintenance issues, enables it to be stationed on fixed or portable towers for real-time 3-dimensional air flow measurements.

Available in two configurations: standard flat base, or now with the convenience of a pipe-mount base. Pipe-mount base will accommodate any 1/2″ DN15 Schedule 10 pipe. Wiring (with 12-pin circular connector) runs on the interior of the pipe further protecting components and streamlining your installation. Either way, deployment is quick and easy.

Say goodbye to cumbersome and bulky cup-and-vane anemometers, and hello to the TriSonica™ Mini Wind & Weather Sensor.

Sparv Embedded is an approved distributor of the appreciated TriSonica sensor. It is also possible to buy this sensor as part of the Sparvio system (SKS31)

TriSonica™ Mini Wind & Weather Sensor with Pipe-Mount Base
Trisonica Mini Wind and Weather Sensor with pipe mount base

The same features and functionality you have come to expect in the TriSonica Mini Wind & Weather Sensor, but now with the convenience of a pipe-mount base. The pipe-mount base will accommodate any 1/2″ DN15 Schedule 10 pipe. Wiring runs on the interior of the pipe further protecting components and streamlining your installation. The pipe-mount version of our device uses a 12-Pin circular connector, brings out the RS-422 signals, plus the trigger signal to synchronize multiple instruments.

Durability and ruggedness a result of it glass-filled nylon constructed body (found throughout the automotive industry) and its carbon fiber corner rods. The TriSonica Mini Wind & Weather Sensor is lightweight, rugged, and highly accurate, making it the perfect choice for fixed installations or UAS/drone deployments.
