The Scintec SFAS is a very compact acoustic profiler for the measurement of wind and turbulence up to 500 m above the ground.
The operation is based on the reflection of acoustic pulses at temperature inhomogeneities in the air with subsequent doppler analysis.
The instrument can replace towers, tethered balloons or radiosondes at a fraction of the operational costs. With its small size and low weight, the system can be easily transported and installed. Low power consumption facilitates operation in remote areas.
With its proprietary Flat Array Antenna and patented technology, the Scintec SFAS has significant advantages in accuracy, data availability, energy efficiency, lifetime and serviceability – even over systems which are much larger and require more power.
The versatile but easy-to-use operation software APRun satisfies the most demanding needs. Its configurability, graphical display and output options, quality control features, statistical analysis tools, remote access support and self-test functions define today’s standard in wind profiler operation software.
