Wind Monitor-HD-Alpine

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.

The Wind Monitor-HD-Alpine utilizes extremely long wearing, oversize ceramic bearings to increase the service life many times longer than standard stainless steel bearings. In addition to being more wear resistant, ceramic bearings are resistant to corrosion in environments that are hostile to steel bearings.

The Wind Monitor HD-Alpine also has an oversized propeller shaft, high pitch propeller and locking propeller nut, all features that will further enhance the long term reliability of the sensor.

All 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 the ice shedding performance of the sensor.

The instrument mounts on standard 1 inch pipe.
