Abstract

The low cost data acquisition module has been developed to allow solar collectors and wind power studies with the goal of improvement their performance. Although systems exist for this purpose, the main idea is to allow the development of new ones, using open and low cost platforms. According with this proposal, this new module will be develop for capturing data for wind speed and direction. The module sends this information to the user by the computer screen and record it in an SD card (Solid State Card) for later use. The equipment proposed can be used standalone in external environment, using a 9V battery, and register the information along a specified time period. The proposed code was designe for storage data in a plain text comma-separated (CSV). In the future, this system will receive improvements to register other relevant infomations, like temperatures, fluid flow and other reference parameters. Some tests for wind speed and direction were performed on diferent conditions for testing the apparatus and the code.
