The WindLog is a compact, inexpensive wind data logger for autonomous collection of wind speed and direction data.
The WindLog is a compact, inexpensive wind data logger for autonomous collection of wind speed and direction data. Data can be downloaded from the WindLog using a 15-foot USB cable and the no-cost Windows-based WindLogger software (WindSoft), which uses a SQLite database to track and record wind information.
The logging interval can be set from once a minute to once an hour. The USB cable can be left connected to the WindLog, allowing real-time viewing of the wind data on a computer. By combining both logged and real-time data, WindLog can be used both online and offline. WindSoft can generate statistics, graphs and reports. It can also export CSV files for use with Microsoft Excel or any other application that supports CSV files.
Battery life for the logger will depend upon the environment and logging rates. Typical battery life is 6-9 months. When connected to a computer the WindLog will use the USB port power to run. This further extends the life of the batteries.
The Mini-Aervane wind sensor is equipped with low friction race bearings. This reduces the threshold to approximately one mile per hour. The wind direction sensor has a 16-point resolution. Logged direction readings are averaged readings.
A support mast is included with the WindLog. This mast can be used with the Rainwise Mono Mount or tripod. The mast may also be attached to a support structure using U-Bolts or lag screws.

RainWise is one of the oldest players in the weather monitoring market, having been around since 1974. For reference, that’s only 4 years younger than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Through the years this Maine-based company has logged several advancements in the field starting with RainWise’s very first product, the tipping bucket rain gauge, which is now an industry standard. Since then they have introduced the first consumer digital weather station and the first wireless consumer weather station among other pioneering innovations. With more than 40 years of experience, the products that RainWise produces today are just as inspired.Read More
The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program, reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.Read More
What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.Read More
