El anemómetro sónico CSAT3A equivale al cabezal del anemómetro sónico CSAT3, con el cable modificado para conectar al módulo electrónico EC100. El CSAT3A se utiliza en nuestros sistemas "eddy-covariance" junto al analizador "open-path" EC150 y el analizador "closed-path" CPEC200.Leer más
The CSAT3A is an optional component of an EC150 open-path or EC155 closed-path CO2/H2O gas analyzer. It attaches to a common mounting bracket and connects to the gas analyzer's EC100 electronics module.

Yes. If the matching layer is damaged or missing, return the CSAT3 to the factory for repair. Follow the steps listed on our Repair and Calibration page to request a returned material authorization (RMA) number.
No. The CSAT3 does not report time with the wind measurements. A time stamp will be assigned to the wind data by the data acquisition system—either a datalogger or a PC.
No. The offset is a function of temperature and time. Once a year, spot-check the CSAT3 wind offset using the procedure outlined in the CSAT3 instruction manual. If the measured offset is outside the specification, return the CSAT3 to the factory for calibration. To request a returned material authorization (RMA) number, follow the steps listed on our Repair and Calibration page.
The CSAT3 is calibrated over temperature for the effects of transducer delays on the wind speed, and to a lesser extent, for the speed of sound measurements.
There is no NIST-traceable standard for ultrasonic anemometers.
No. The CSAT3 is a sensor. Time stamps are assigned to the CSAT3 data by the data acquisition system—typically a Campbell Scientific datalogger or PC.
The CSAT3, like other sonic anemometers, measures wind speed along the sonic path using ultrasonic signals. If the salt spray blocks the sonic path, the CSAT3 will not be able to make measurements. The same is true if a thick layer of salt is deposited on the transducer faces.
Yes. The CSAT3 measurement frequency can be changed by the user. It is set by the Execution Parameter. This parameter is described in detail in the CSAT3 instruction manual in the “Datalogger Instruction Parameters” section, as well as in the “CSAT3 RS-232 Commands” section of Appendix B.
The CSAT3 offset specification is ±8 cm/s. Therefore, it cannot be used in an application where the expected wind speed is in the range of ±5 cm/s.
The CSAT3 is compatible with three output signals: analog, RS-232, and Synchronous Device for Measurement (SDM). The CSAT3 can be interfaced to any data acquisition system that is compatible with analog measurements or RS-232 serial communications. SDM is used with Campbell Scientific dataloggers.
