034B Wind Sensor

The 034B Wind Sensor combines wind speed and direction measurements in a single sensing unit. It installs in minutes and provides accurate, long-term, continuous monitoring in hostile environments. The sensor uses a quick-connect sensor cable which may extend hundreds of feet without affecting measurement performance.

Features

  • Compact design for minimum visual Impact
  • Long field life
  • Durable aluminum and stainless steel construction
  • Low starting threshold
  • Very low power operation
  • Easy maintenance and re-alignment
  • Sealed magnetic reed switch for wind speed measurement
  • Aluminum direction vane coupled to a precision potentiometer
  • Digital or analog measurement ability
