An anemometer is a device used for measuring wind speed, and is a common weather station instrument. This well made anemometer is designed to sit outside and measure wind speed with ease.

To use, connect the black wire to power and signal ground, the brown wire to 7-24VDC (we have tested it with success between 9-24V, disregard the 12V printed on the label) and measure the analog voltage on the blue wire. The voltage will range from 0.4V (0 m/s wind) up to 2.0V (for 32.4m/s wind speed). That's it! The sensor is rugged, and easy to mount. The cable can easily disconnect with a few twists and has a weatherproof connector.

This anemometer is not IP rated, so it is not designed to withstand water ingress without additional gasketting or protection.

Note: As of 11/06/2014, shipping weight has been changed on this product to match UPS' new dimensional weight regulations.
