Vaisala WINDCAP® Ultrasonic Wind Sensor Technology uses ultrasound to determine horizontal wind speed and direction. WINDCAP® sensors have no moving parts so they are free from the challenges posed by conventional mechanical wind sensors ( friction, inertia, time constant, over-speeding, starting threshold). WINDCAP® sensors can be heated for use in cold climates. Finally, WINDCAP® sensors are maintenance-free and do not require field calibration.
