    Nomad 3

     Nomad 3

    At the heart of the SP-12 system is the Nomad 3 data logger. Designed for renewable energy measurement appliations and already in use at hundreds of wind energy installations, the Nomad 3 is rugged and reliable, stands up to harsh climates, has low power requirements, and reduces transmission costs with small data file sizes.

    Nomad 3 is simple to install and operate. It offers 12 measurement channels to support not only solar resource data logging but also the other environmental measurements needed for ground-level resource assessment. Hermetically sealed electronics, robust industrial-grade connectors, and state-of-the-art lightning protection make Nomad 3 an excellent choice for demanding climate and weather conditions.
