AQSystem has extensive experience of providing solutions for measuring wind conditions with the help of sodar technology. This continuous work has resulted in the development of the leading remote sensing product, AQ510 Wind Finder.

AQ510 Wind Finder can be used for several different purposes:

  • Wind power measuring
  • Air traffic measuring
  • Environmental measuring

AQSystem has in just a couple of years delivered several hundred units of the AQ510 Wind Finder to clients in 40 different countries around the world. The secret behind this success can be found in the diversity of the design.

AQ510 Wind Finder has:

  • The ability to measure the wind profile up to 200 m
  • High data availability
  • A reliable sodar developed by AQSystem
  • A robust and mobile design for easy deployment
  • Been designed to operate in any weather conditions
  • No need for building permits
  • One switch start-up
  • Best SoDAR for turbulence measurement

The design of the AQ510 Wind Finder makes it a fully mobile system. The antenna and electronic units, together with power supply, are combined in a trailer that makes the system easy to install and support:

One power switch

The AQ510 Wind Finder will automatically start taking measurements when the power switch is activated. A normal installation will take less then one hour after arrival at the site.

Solar panels and power generator

The main power source is the solar panels. For northern countries the system is also equipped with a small generator as back-up during the dark months.

Intelligent power control unit

The control unit will sense the voltage level in the battery bank automatically and switch between the solar panels and the power generator as required. The 600 Ah battery bank allows the system to operate for a week without other power supplies. In addition, the unit will send SMS alarm messages in the unlikely event of failure.

What Is Sodar?

Sodar, or “Sonic Detection And Ranging”, is a technology that makes it possible to measure wind profiles with the help of sound. It works in the same way as a radar system but sends out sound waves, instead of radio signal, for detection.
