Environmental Tester - PCE-WL 1 mobile wind recorder / SD memory card / ambient temperature: -15 ... +50 º C / with wind speed sensor / battery power / internal temperature sensor

The Environmental Tester PCE-WL 1 is an ideal tool to measure and store the wind speed for a long time. The battery enables you to use the wind recorder in situ. Since a wind power station is an expensive investment, you usually want to know what profits it will generate in advance. The Environmental Tester PCE-WL1 helps determine these profits. The measurement data are recorded on a SD memory card.


The user can select the desired measurement rate (10 s, 1 min or 10 min) from the wind's recorder. The Environmental Tester prepares a file according to the amount of measurements selected once a day or once a month. CSV files stored on the SD memory card of the recorder wind can be transmitted to a computer and imported into a datasheet, e.g. Excel, to be analyzed later. This way, it is possible to determine the optimal location for a wind power station. Meter sensors with isolated contacts, Hall effect devices, TTL signals and output SO-signals can be connected to the two digital inputs. The Environmental Tester has an analog input to record the wind direction. The Environmental Tester is configurated via an RS-232 port. This option allows real-time data transmission.


The wind sensor includes a small set that allows the measurement of the flow direction of the horizontal wind. The dynamic and supportive materials are made of plastic and ensure a safe and almost maintenance-free condition. The resolution of the wind measurement is 0.4 m / s. The L-bracket for mounting that is included in the delivery easily holds the wind sensor. A power supply (this can not be obtained through wind recorder) will allow for a warming (heating) of the device for an optimal performance at low temperatures in winter.
