Cost effective and longer lasting wind sensing technology
Jul 15 2020 Read 482 Times
Over 20 years, LCJ Capteurs has been designing and manufacturing ultrasonic wind vane - anemometers. As the forerunners of the ultrasonic wind sensor in the marine sector, this French company offers products that are very good value for money with self-sufficient energy thanks to its wireless capability.
The product range has been improved and enhanced to offer the best and most efficient compact, robust and lightweight wind sensors. These are designed and manufactured in LCJ’s workshop, but also tested in wind tunnel, climatic chamber and ageing bench. Every test is recorded against the unit’s serial number to ensure reliability, accuracy and robustness.
Thanks to ultrasonic technology, there are no rotating parts on the LCJ Capteurs’ products. This is why these sensors have a much longer life span than conventional wind vane anemometers.
Three types of terrestrial sensors are available: NMEA 0183, Modbus – analogue, ultra-low/zero-power. Sensors already mounted on vertical poles (external power supply or self-powered) or OEM solutions to incorporate into bespoke systems are available, as well as tailor-made finished products. These solutions are compatible with all interfaces used on weather stations.
The LCJ Capteurs’ ultrasonic wind sensors are supplied to weather station integrators, connected agriculture systems, smart buildings, the sports sector, pollution detection systems and various other domains.
As the company continues to grow, extension works on their headquarters have been carried out in order to increase the production and storage capacity to meet the steady increase in demand.
