Vaisala Triton Wind Profiler
The Triton Wind Profiler is a durable, robust, and independent sonic detection and ranging (SoDAR) device used for wind monitoring. Triton captures extensive data on anomalous wind events such as speed and direction shear and turbulence that directly affect wind turbines’ power output – and that could affect a wind farm’s performance. It’s also a suitable complement to noise monitoring campaigns.
The Triton requires only 7 W of power for continuous operation. Technology innovations like low-power amplifier chips and the Blackfin ARM enable Triton to be powered by two solar panels and to run continuously without being attended. During winter operations, a fuel cell may be required.
Triton captures wind data at heights up to 200 meters, reducing uncertainty inherent in the use of extrapolated data from meteorological towers.
Dulas is proud to supply sales and support for Vaisala Tritons in the UK and Ireland.
