Long-range, 3D wind data for efficient, safe port operations.
With modern, laser-based weather sensors, 3D spatial wind data providing detailed situational awareness can be captured in every corner of the port. WindCube® Scan is the industry’s tool of choice for providing precise, spatial wind data at ranges up to more than 10km. It can create a virtual dome around the port area (the equivalent of thousands of anemometers), allowing users to measure, understand, and act on current — and ever-changing — conditions to maximize safety, efficiency, and operational continuity.
WindCube Scan provides full 3D scanning with ranges up to 3km, 6km, or 10km (depending on model), as well as several scanning patterns for the wind observations. Ports can depend on outstanding uptime, data availability, and comprehensive insights that exceed what traditional wind sensors can provide.
Get rich campaign insights through your choice of data management tools. WindCube Scan offers flexible data management through API requests, communication with an FTP server, or a user-friendly and robust graphical user interface.
WindCube Scan units are unobtrusive, and their rugged, industrial designs can withstand even the harshest marine environments. They are among the most flexible and accurate wind measurement technologies anywhere, and are used in the toughest conditions for offshore measurements.
WindCube Scan is supported by Vaisala’s decades of experience, scientific leadership, and industry standard support services — all of which enable customers to get the most from their equipment over long service lives.
