CV7SF is a wind sensor from LCJ Capteurs.
Wireless, with no moving parts, and self-powered, it spectacularly simplifies installation making it ideal for applications where running a cable is difficult or impossible. One of its advantages is to simplify installation on elevated sites for measurements where the wind is free and unobstructed.
CV7SF combines advanced technologies: ultrasonic measurements, solar power supply, wireless digital transmissions, super-capacitor for electrical energy storage.
The CV7SF wind sensor integrates a radio transmitter, a photovoltaic cell and an energy accumulator.
A measurement of wind speed/direction and temperature is transmitted for a short time interval of 25 ms at an average rate of 1 second during the day and 15 seconds during the night to cover a 15-hour night.
The radio signal is remotely received by a receiver/decoder box and formatted, providing standardised messages directly usable by computer USB or COM ports or by specialised navigation displays.
All LCJ Capteurs are designed and manufactured in the Nantes region in France where they are fully tested throughout the manufacturing process.
