The Wind Monitor is a high resolution wind sensor for air quality applications, that is compatible with Onset's line of research-grade weather stations, including the RX3000, U30-NRC, H21, and H22 systems. When paired with the S-WCB-M003 wind sensor adapter, it offers plug-and-play performance with Onset stations, eliminating the need for programming or complex wiring. ‚ It combines low threshold, fast response and excellent fidelity to meet important regulatory standards.¢‚¬¨¢‚¬¨
