March 12, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Massachusetts-based Second Wind introduces satellite connectivity for its Nomad 2 wind resource data logger. The company said the new loggers can provide customers with convenient, cost-effective access to wind data from remote locations unserved by cellular and landline phone systems. The wind measurement system can be installed literally anywhere in the world, and still be able to transmit the data from the site back to the office on a daily basis. Many potential windfarm sites are in remote locations, beyond the reach of cellular service and regular site visits. The Iridium satellite service selected by Second Wind uses a system of 66 low earth orbit satellites providing complete coverage of the earth’s surface. The Nomad 2 data logger will transmit data daily, providing confidence that the meteorological station is still functioning properly.
