WindSonic is a robust, low cost ultrasonic wind sensor with no moving parts. This 2-axis ultrasonic wind sensor offers maintenance-free wind speed and direction monitoring for true ‘fit and forget’ wind sensing.

The Gill WindSonic is a genuine low cost alternative to conventional cup and vane or propeller wind sensors, with all of the advantages of solid-state ultrasonic technology. With no moving parts to jam, break or wear out, this ultrasonic wind sensor is ideal for use in harsh weather conditions.

WindSonic has been designed as a lightweight (0.5kg) and robust ultrasonic wind sensor, with a corrosion-free polycarbonate construction. With a true solid-state construction, WindSonic can be operated in harsh environmental conditions without fear of damage often associated with fragile cup or propeller wind sensors.
