- MadgeTech IFC200 USB cable and software for downloading and viewing wind speed data.
This data loggging kit allows you to set up the data logger from your PC or laptop to collect up to 500,000 intervals of wind speed data. Each interval is an increment of time that you select. The data logger stores the number of rotor rotations during each interval, which is proportional to the AVERAGE wind speed during that interval. The end result is a collection of data points, each of which represents the average speed over that interval. The average speed is the ONLY information captured for each interval.
Intervals range from 1 second to 12 hours, and up to 500,000 can be stored in a single run!
Setting up the data logger is simple, using the software provided. Downloading the data is also simple with the MadgeTech software.
