The Wind Monitor is a high performance wind sensor 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-WCE-M003 wind sensor adapter, it offers plug-and-play performance with Onset stations, eliminating the need for programming or complex wiring.
Rugged, corrosion-resistant construction makes the Wind Monitor ideal for a wide range of wind measuring applications. The wind speed sensor is a four blade helicoid propeller; the wind direction sensor is a rugged yet lightweight vane. Vane angle is sensed by a precision potentiometer. Constructed of UV stabilized plastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum fittings, the sensor mounts on standard one-inch pipe.
