The 2000 series SoDARs are intended as high-altitude sensors. These use three parabolic dishes in three separate enclosures. The 2000 series can operate in lower power consumption mode, pulsing each antenna at different time intervals. Or, they can be configured to sample all three beams simultaneously, increasing the number of complete samples during the averaging intervals. This unit captures data in real-time. The 2000 products measure vertical and horizontal wind speed, and wind direction with 10-m resolution up to 700m. The digital facsimile offers a look at the atmospheric structure exposing inversions and other critical information. The equipment can work remotely or in a network.
