The RainWise WindLog is a compact wind data logger designed to accurately measure and record wind speed, direction, and gust to optimize turbine placement and performance. It includes the WindSoft free software package to generate statistics, graphs, and reports.

The WindLog samples data every second and stores both average and gust readings at the user-selected interval. User-selectable logging intervals range from one minute to one hour. The 2 MB memory can record for over three months at a one-minute rate and store over a year’s worth of wind data at a 10-minute logging interval.

The Mini-Aervane wind sensor is equipped with low-friction race bearings, which reduce the threshold to approximately 1 mile per hour. The wind direction sensor has a 16-point resolution. Logged direction readings are averaged readings.

The data logger operates on 3 AA Alkaline or Lithium batteries. Batteries are not included. Lithium batteries are recommended for cold environments. The typical life should be around six months. When connected to a computer, the WindLog will use the USB ports power to run, further extending the battery life. The WindLog ships with a 15-foot USB cable. A USB extender is available that will allow users to extend this cable to 100-foot using CAT5e network cable.

Remote Data
Each WindLog ships with a free Windows-based application, WindSoft. The software uses an SQLite database to track and record wind information. While connected, WindSoft will update the database every minute. Downloaded data is integrated into the database. By combining both logged and real-time data, the WindLog can be used both online and offline. It also can export CSV files for use with Microsoft Excel or any other application that supports CSV files.

The WindLog includes a support mast that can be used with the RainWise Mono Mount and Tripod. The mast may also be attached to a support structure using U-bolts or lag screws.

RainWise Weather Stations, Telemetry And Accessories

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.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.

Combating Water Insecurity in Saskatchewan with Real-Time Data

The prairies of Saskatchewan can be described as one of the least water-secure parts of Canada, making water quality monitoring essential for informed resource management in a region already facing water insecurity. While natural physical properties worsen some of the poor water quality conditions in the region, others are connected to land use. Having grown up spending summers on the shores of Lake Huron, Helen Baulch, an associate professor at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan , has always been dedicated to the protection of water resources. Looking back fondly at her childhood playing along the shore, Baulch also recalls the invasion of quagga mussels during her teenage years and watching the lake change as a result.
