Windcube® Validation Service
Deploy your Windcube Lidar with added confidence - obtain a traceable record of accuracy and performance with a validation service conducted at NRG Systems.
A Lidar-to-Lidar Windcube Validation Service is available for customer-owned Windcube Vertical Profilers. This service is essential for customers requiring a traceable record of Lidar accuracy and performance before or after critical field campaigns, especially where on-site validation against a reference measurement may be impractical or impossible.
Windcube Vertical Profilers enrolled in a Lidar-to-Lidar performance validation will be tested alongside NRG's golden reference Windcube for a period of 10-20 days, depending upon atmospheric conditions at NRG. The reference Windcube is in turn periodically calibrated against a met mast at Danish Technical University (DTU). New Windcubes shipped from the manufacturer (Leosphere SAS) are compared to NRG's reference Lidar as an ongoing performance check of both the new Lidars and the golden reference unit.
A results report will be issued following the measurement comparison period, which will state whether the test Lidar passed or failed the performance metrics at each height (40m, 80m, 100m, 120m, 160m) and for each measurement or derived value. In the case of failure of one or more performance metrics, the customer may elect to have NRG perform additional investigations and/or repairs of the Lidar. These additional actions, if required, will be the subject of a separate agreement.
