This professional instrument was particularly developed to provide a very cost effective, yet WMO compliant wind sensor.
This highly professional pair of sensors is manufactured for Adcon by one of Germany’s best known sensor manufacturers. The housings of both sensors are made of robust, seawater resistant aluminium, to withstand even the harshest of conditions.
Wind Speed Sensor
The Wind Speed Sensor has a very low starting threshold of less than 0.4m/s, thanks to its low-friction bearings and its generously dimensioned aluminum cups. The rotating 3-cup unit can be replaced in the field. The sensor will measure speeds of up to 200 km/h.
Wind Direction Sensor
The Wind Vane employs an accurate hall sensor. The vane is also made of aluminum and, like the wind cups, is easily field replaceble.
Both sensors require very little maintenance and will remain within their specifications for many years.
To properly mount the sensors according to WMO requirements the set comprises of an 80cm wide mast mounting arm, complete with mounting brackets. Each cable comes with its own Binder cable plus a separate Y-cable. This allows individual replacement of sensors in case of maintenance or repair, but still occupies only one connector on your Adcon RTU.
Both sensors are also available as individual units. If ordered separately they will be delivered with individual mounting arms and a 2m Binder cable.
