Heavy Duty Wind Monitor-HD Model 05108
The Wind Monitor-HD has important features that greatly extend the service life of this popular sensor. It promises improved survivability for the most severe wind measuring applications.
The reliability of the Wind Monitor sensor is well known. The sensitive vane and propeller combination has proven effective for countless applications in many disciplines. The Wind Monitor-HD (Heavy Duty) series is designed to address the most common concern of mechanical wind sensors: bearing replacement.
Some of the features of the new Wind Monitor-HD series of sensors are:
- Oversized bearings
- Corrosion free Ceramic Bearings
- Oversized propeller shaft
- Locking propeller nut
- High pitch propeller to reduce bearing wear
All features that enhance long-term reliability of the sensor.
Heavy Duty Wind Monitor-HD-Alpine Model 05108-45
The Heavy Duty Wind Monitor HD-Alpine combines the features of the HD unit along with the ice resistant coating of our popular Alpine Wind Monitor. Robust, reliable, durable . . . . all words to describe the latest addition of the Young family of wind monitors developed to endure the most extreme environments.
Wind Monitor Model 05103
The Wind Monitor is a high performance wind sensor. Rugged, corrosion-resistant construction makes it ideal for a wide range of windmeasuring applications.
The wind speed sensor is a four blade helicoid propeller. Propeller rotation produces an AC sine wave voltage signal. The wind direction sensor is a rugged yet lightweight vane. Vane angle is sensed by a precision potentiometer. Constructed of UV stabilized plastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum fittings, the sensor mounts on standard 1 inch pipe. Model 05103V offers calibrated 0-5 VDC outputs, Model 05103L provides a calibrated 4-20 mA current signal for each channel.
Marine Wind Monitor Model 05106
The Wind Monitor MA is an accurate and reliable wind sensor specifically designed for the rigors of the marine environment.
The wind speed sensor is a four blade helicoid propeller. Unique transducer produces a pulse signal without electrical contacts or slip rings. The wind direction sensor is a durable molded vane. Vane angle is sensed by a precision potentiometer housed in a sealed chamber. All materials are carefully selected for corrosion resistance and maximum durability in the harsh marine environment. Stainless steel bearings are used throughout. Special waterproof lubricant further enhances reliability. The instrument mounts on standard 1 inch pipe. Separate signal conditioning circuits are available to provide voltage or current signals when needed (see below). Each is supplied in a weatherproof junction box with mounting hardware.
Alpine Wind Monitor Ice-resistant Model 05103-45
The Wind Monitor – ALPINE MODEL offers the performance and rugged construction of our standard Wind Monitor with the added benefit of an ice-resistant coating on external surfaces. It promises improved survivability for the most severe wind measuring applications.
The wind direction sensor is a rugged molded vane. The wind speed sensor is a four blade helicoid propeller. Propeller diameter is slightly reduced from our standard model to minimize vibration at high speeds. External housing surfaces are coated with a specially formulated, Ice-resistant coating to improve performance in harsh alpine conditions. The all-black color scheme further enhances ice-shedding performance of the sensor. The instrument is made of UV stabilized plastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum fittings. The instrument mounts on standard 1 inch pipe. Model 05103V-45 offers calibrated voltage outputs, Model 05103L-45 provides 4-20 mA current outputs.
