Products Triton Sonic Wind Profiler

Second Wind's Triton Sonic Wind Profiler is an advanced sodar system that provides accurate wind measurement data across the entire blade sweep of today's largest wind turbines. With over 350 Triton sodar systems in commercial use, and an equivalent of over 400 years of operation, the Triton sodar is the wind industry's market-leading remote sensing system.

Bankable, hub-height wind data

Reducing uncertainty in AEP forecasts requires measurements across the full rotor sweep of a turbine. Leading consulting firms accept well-validated sodar data as part of a bankable wind study. Adding Triton data to 60-meter or 80-meter tower data meets the industry's current requirements while reducing the uncertainty of a wind resource assessment and enabling better project design.

Continuous, unattended operation

Triton's ultra-low power requirement (7 Watts for a standard Triton) and rugged construction allows it to be deployed in remote, non-powered locations -- just like a met tower. Triton operates continuously and sends wind data to your secure SkyServe® web portal. No babysitting required!

Worry-free wind measurement

Triton's robust design, rugged construction, and low power requirements have contributed to a stellar record of over 95 percent operational uptime since 2008. Second Wind's renowned team of support technicians monitor the fleet of Tritons daily and act quickly to keep your study running. SkyServe® -- included with every Triton -- stores your wind data in one of the world's premier secure servers and ensures the chain-of-custody of the data throughout your entire wind project.

A cost effective, affordable solution

The Triton sodar system offers a lower cost of ownership than comparable remote sensing systems and provides the hub height data you need to optimize your project financing packages or gain valuable information about conditions on an operating wind farm.

“I think there is a great future for remote sensing. The combination of well validated SODAR devices and traditional anemometry is a very good one and GL Garrad Hassan is already using remote sensing data in combination with conventional methods and data." — Andrew Garrad, President, GL Garrad Hassan
