The Wind Sensor Set includes Onset's research-grade plug-and-play Wind Speed Smart Sensor and the Wind Direction Smart Sensor. This combination provides average wind speed, highest 3-second wind gust, and average wind direction for the measurement interval. These durable sensors will provide many years of accurate and reliable performance.
NOTE: Mount these on the M-CAA Full Cross Arm for proper sensor spacing for accurate wind measurement in all wind directions.
The cross arm must be mounted on a stable mast using guy wires as needed to prevent the sensors from vibrating in high winds.

What measurements does this sensor support?
The S-WSET-B sensor supports the following measurement: Wind
|Specifications||Wind Speed/Gust (S-WSB-M003)||Wind Direction (S-WDA-M003)|
|Measurement Range||0 to 76 m/s (0 to 170 mph)||0 to 355 degrees, 5 degree dead band|
|Maximum Wind Speed Survival||76 m/sec (170 mph)||
67 m/sec (150 mph)
|Accuracy||± 1.1 m/s (2.4 mph) or
± 4% of reading whichever is greater
|± 5 degrees|
|Resolution||0.5 m/s (1.1 mph)||1.4 degrees|
|Starting Threshold||1.0 m/s (2.2 mph)||1.0 m/s (2.2 mph)|
|Measurement Definition||Cup revolutions are accumulated every three seconds for the duration of the logging interval. Wind speed is the average speed for the entire logging interval. Gust speed is the highest three-second wind recorded during the logging interval.||Unit vector components of wind direction are accumulated every three seconds for duration of logging interval. Average direction is calculated from the average of these.|
|Operating Temperature Range||-40°C to +75°C (-40°F to +167°F)||-40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F)|
|Service Life||Greater than 5 years typical||4 to 6 years typical depending upon environmental conditions|
|Housing||Three cup polycarbonate anemometer: Modified Teflon bearings and hardened beryllium shaft with ice shedding design||Injection-molded housing and vane, static dissipating base, lead-free silicon bronze nose, and aluminum mounting rod.|
|Bearing Type||Modified Teflon bearings||two shielded stainless steel ball bearings|
|Turning Radius||9.5 cm (3.75 in.)||Approximately 13.5 cm (5.25 in.)|
