Latest enhancements to the WindCube Nacelle deliver simplified Lidar system and data management with the cloud-based WindCube Insights — Fleet.

Rotor equivalent wind speed Lidar data provides rotor-averaged wind speed, enabling more detailed analysis of most modern, large rotor turbines.

An integrated weather sensor directly mounted on the Lidar provides air pressure, temperature, humidity, and rain and hail data.
