Lidar addition enables floating laboratory

Lidar addition enables floating laboratory
AXYS Technologies is looking to set the standard in floating lidar devices, having deployed a dual ZephIR 300 arrangement on the company's WindSentinel buoy, a world first. The WindSentinel ‘floating laboratory’ delivers a customised full suite of meteorological and metocean data, in addition to the wind speed & direction data used for resource assessment, to better inform the development of offshore wind farms.

Measure tilted global and diffuse solar radiation

The position and angle of fixed photovoltaic panels makes a big difference to the power output and return on investment of a solar energy plant. The best way to determine this in prospecting and performance measurement is by measuring solar radiation with both horizontal AND tilted pyranometers. Kipp & Zonen now offers an accessory to tilt a CMP pyranometer to your preferred angle; the Adjustable Tilt CMP Mounting Kit.
