Model 03002/03102

Wind Sentry

The Model 03002 Wind Sentry Anemometer and Vane are professional quality sensors suitable for a wide range of wind measurement applications. These economically priced sensors provide excellent sensitivity, corrosion resistance, and minimal parts count for easy maintenance.

The anemometer uses three lightweight hemispherical cups to measure wind speed. Cup wheel rotation produces an AC frequency that is linearly proportional to wind speed. The vane employs a balanced vane assembly with vane position sensed by a long life precision potentiometer. Precision stainless steel ball bearings are used throughout.

For wind speed only, Model 03102 Wind Sentry Anemometer is available separately.
