Windcube is a remote sensing wind measurement device that uses pulsed Doppler Lidar technology to provide high quality data on par with an industry standard met tower.

Introduced to the market by Leosphere, Windcube has quickly become recognized as the market standard for superior performance for both wind resource assessment and wind farm performance monitoring. Lenders have readily adopted data provided by Windcube and consider this device to be “best-in-class.” Windcube is categorized as being in Stage 3 of DNV GL’s rigorous standards related to remote sensor acceptance for formal energy assessment purposes, and is suitable for use in contractual power performance testing under the guidelines of IEC 61400-12-1 [ed. 2].

More than 500 Windcube Lidars are now in operation globally.

WINDCUBE: Land-based Wind Measurement

Windcube is a lightweight system that uses four radial laser beams and one vertically oriented beam to collect data up to 290 meters above ground level. It provides measurements of horizontal and vertical wind speed, direction, turbulence intensity, and shear at 12 user-selected heights simultaneously, eliminating uncertainty due to measurement extrapolation.

Ultra-portable at 45 kg, Windcube can be quickly and easily deployed for fast collection of bankable data without the need for special permits. With multiple communications options, IP67 environmental protection, and the optional Flow Complexity Recognition (FCR) complex terrain solution, Windcube operates reliably in any climate or terrain.
