The RainWise® WindLog
Wind Data Logging Device
The WindLog™ is a compact, inexpensive wind data logger, designed to meet the needs of people considering the purchase of a wind turbine. While many people rely on wind maps to assist them with this purchase decision, these maps don’t provide the detailed information for a specific area. The WindLog allows you to make your own accurate wind study to optimize your turbine placement and its performance, once installed.
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. USB extenders can be used to lengthen the USB cable to over 100 feet. 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.

USB Extender Kit
Provides up to a 100-foot extension of the WindLog USB
connection. The USB signals are transmitted over standard CAT5e network cable (sold
separately)*. It consists of two USB interfaces, waterproof enclosure and 3
foot USB cable.
The WindLog wind sensor is connected to the data logger using 8-conductor CAT5e cable. This ethernet cable can be used to separate the wind sensor from the WindLog, or for use with the USB Extender Kit above.
The Rainwise Mono Mount is a flexible mounting alternative to the standard 3 foot tripod. Its quick and easy to install and can be mounted on a pitched or flat roof as well as a vertical surface such as a gable ends.
The Mono Mount is constructed from powder coated steel, aluminum and PVC. This mounting system is durable and stable. The slender design is simple and unobtrusive and is aesthetically pleasing. The adjustable base of the mount van be adjusted to mount on any pitch roof.
The 3-foot galvanized steel Rainwise Tripod Mounting Stand provides a solid mount for the MK-III weather station or WindLog and can be used on both flat and pitched roofs.
