2000s/2000tpThe 2000 series SoDARs are ASC’s high altitude SoDAR systems. These systems utilize 3 parabolic dishes in three separate enclosures. The foundation for this design dates back to 1976. Decades of research and development have lead to the modern day systems.The 2000 series systems have the ability to operate in lower power consumption mode, pulsing each antenna at different time intervals. Or, they can be configured to sample all 3 beams simultaneously increasing the number of complete samples available during the averaging intervals. This product, like all of ASC’s SoDARs, offers the ability to capture data in real-time. The 2000 products measure vertical wind speed, horizontal wind speed, and wind direction with 10m resolution up to 700m. The digital facsimile offers a look at the atmospheric structure exposing inversions and…

3000s

products
3000 SeriesThe 3000 series SoDARs are ASC’s mid-range wind and turbulence monitoring systems. These systems offer 10m resolution with maximum data recovery up to 400m. With wind turbine research yielding taller towers and wider blade spans, the 3000 series SoDARs ensure that all of the needed wind measurement data is captured. The 3000 products provide the ability to capture data that is useful now and relevant for future technology. The 3000 series systems are based on ASC’s phased array technology. This technology originated in the early 1990’s and has been refined to produce the highest quality data. The 3000 product line features a built in LCD display enabling users to easily access the system and change settings while in the field. ASC’s advanced processing techniques ensure that each level is…

4000i/4000sThe 4000 series SoDARs are the latest of the Model 4000 product line. These phased array SoDAR systems are based on research dating back to the early 1990’s and have been continuously improved along the way. The 4000 product line features a built in LCD display enabling users to easily access the system and change settings while in the field.The 4000 offers the highest resolution data available on the market allowing for data recovery in 5 meter increments. This SoDAR measures wind starting at the 30m level up to the 200m level. ASC’s advanced processing techniques ensure that each level is an independent measurement resulting in no smoothing or large scale averaging of the data. The result is in the ability to see the level where wind shear changes. This…

4000ws/weThe 4000w series SoDARs are the fully enclosed versions of the 4000 series SoDARS. These systems feature an enclosed trailer that is specifically designed with remote field use in mind. While all of ASC’s SoDARS are designed to excel in the field, the “w” versions offer added security.Since the 4000ws and 4000we are packages of the 4000 SoDARs, these systems offer the same industry leading qualities as all of the 4000 series SoDARs:Highest resolution data available on the market30m to 200m sampling rangeIndependent measurement, no smoothing algorithms or large averagingReal-time data streamingCellular or Satellite communicationNightly emailsEasy to use LCD interfaceFull Networking Capabilities for adding to SCADA systems or existing networksAtmospheric Structure Display (Facsimile data)Tower Formatted DataSelf-Diagnostics (Speaker Monitoring, Fuel levels, etc…)Autonomous Operation (turns off/on heaters, starts/stops generators, etc.)Power Management SystemNumerous…
