anemometer sensor / wind vane / for boats
anemometer, wind vane
The Instromet range of Industrial wind sensor products has proved to be very popular and are one of Instromets biggest selling units at this time.
This range of wind sensors are designed for measuring both wind speed and wind direction with industry standard outputs of either 0-10V DC or 4-20mA. These industry standard outputs allow the wind sensor to be connected to PLCs etc in order to be used for automatic applications where wind parameters are of utmost importance, for example automatic window and vent closures, awning retraction etc just to name a couple.
The wind sensor 0-10V DC or 4-20mA output signals are linear for both wind speed and direction.
Two variations of wind sensor (anemometer) are available: the "Basic" wind sensor version uses a sintered bronze bearing within its cup assembly and the "Pro" wind sensor version uses a ball bearing ideal for harsher environments.
Each unit comes supplied with: wind sensor (anemometer), output control box, 2 x 25m of connecting cable, and finally a wind sensor alignment compass.
Although the wind sensors them selves run from 5V DC the control boxes require the following available power supply source: 0-10V wind sensor = 24V AC & the 4-20mA wind sensor requires 12V DC.
