Technical data and functions

Wind direction sensor

  • Wind direction sensor for measuring the horizontal wind direction.
  • Wind vane made from robust plastic, electronics in weather-resistant aluminum housing, rotating mechanism on friction bearings.
  • A special labyrinth reliably protects without friction and guards against water penetrating into the housing.
  • Electronically controlled heating for operation in winter conditions to prevent bearings and external rotating parts from freezing.

Wind velocity sensor

  • Wind velocity sensor for measuring the horizontal wind velocity.
  • Cup-type made from robust plastic, electronics in weather-resistant aluminum housing, rotating mechanism on friction bearings.
  • A special labyrinth reliably protects without friction and guards against water penetrating into the housing.
  • Electronically controlled heating for operation in winter conditions to prevent bearings and external rotating parts from freezing.
