Description

High resolution wind sensor designed specifically for air quality applications


Feature

  • Combines simplicity and corrosion resistance with low starting threshold
  • Fast response
  • Excellent fidelity in fluctuating wind conditions
  • Lightweight, carbon fiber thermoplastic, helicoid propeller, sensor body of UV stabilized plastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum fittings
  • AC sine wave voltage signal with frequency directly proportional to wind speed (This AC sine wave is then squared to 0 to 5 VDC so signal is compatible with Model 8200A/8210 data loggers frequency inputs on the 5600-0202 only.)
  • No slip rings or brushes
  • Direction sensed by precision potentiometer that produces a DC voltage directly proportional to vane angle
