Ultrasonic Wind Gauge (Standalone)

The WG-Lynx-SA is a standalone upgrade to the popular WG-LYNX anemometer for track & field. This standalone package uses the WG-Lynx wind gauge and adds a sturdy controller unit with buttons and an LED display. The wind gauge and controller combo allows users to capture wind readings right from the infield - without a direct connection to FinishLynx.

This wind gauge package includes the WG-Lynx wind gauge plus the WG-SA-CTRL controller unit, which allows the unit to operate independently for field events. This standalone ultrasonic wind gauge package uses World Athletics-approved ultrasonic technology to provide accurate wind speed and direction data. While the standard WG-Lynx wind gauge only operates when connected to a Finishlynx computer, the WG-Lynx-SA includes a handheld controller unit with LED display. This added controller allows timers to use the wind gauge without FinishLynx to capture, record, and read wind speeds for field events.

The wind gauge is housed in a weather-proof, corrosion-free polycarbonate casing. It is small, lightweight, and operates in harsh weather conditions. It also has no moving parts, ensuring maintenance-free operation. The anemometer package comes equipped with a controller, tripod, carrying case, and 60 meter serial connection cable for great mobility and easy setup.
