Wind Speed and Direction Sensors - WSD1

The wind speed section of the sensor consists of a low-inertia ABS cup assembly for fast response mounted on a dual ballrace-supported stainless steel shaft. A benefit of this design is the zero power requirement needed for operation.

The wind direction component of the sensor consists of a dynamically balanced wind vane operating a triple ballrace supported shaft and microtorque potentiometer with a small deadband of 3o, usually at North. The benefit of this is precise and accurate measurements in all environments.

The WSD1 produces a pulse signal output, which means that most modern data capture units are compatible with these sensors with little or no interfacing.
