Industrial wind sensors for applications where wind speed and wind direction need to be monitored. Also used to activate wind sensitive equipment.
A range of industrial wind sensors (anemometers) designed for measuring wind speed and direction with industry standard outputs of either 0-10V DC or 4-20mA. This allows the wind sensor to be connected to PLCs etc in order to be used for automatic applications where wind parameters are of utmost importance. Examples include extraction fans, automatic windows, vent closures, awning retraction etc just to name a few.
The wind sensor 0-10V DC or 4-20mA output signals are linear for both wind speed and direction.
Two variations of wind sensor (anemometer) are available: the “Basic” wind sensor version uses a sintered bronze bearing within its cup assembly. The “Pro” wind sensor version uses a ball bearing ideal for harsher environments.
Each unit comes supplied with: a wind sensor (anemometer), output control box, 2 x 25m of connecting cable, and a wind sensor alignment compass.
Although the wind sensors run from 5V DC, the control boxes require the following available power supply source. 0-10V wind sensor = 24V AC & the 4-20mA wind sensor requires 12V DC.
Calibration certificates for both the 0-10V and 4-20mA wind sensors please click below.
The Instromet 4-20mA and 0-10v DC wind sensors are now available in Din rail enclosure versions. These can be used directly in electrical enclosures without the need for special mounting requirements. Like the above model these units are available in “Basic” and “Pro” versions and below is a list of their relevant part numbers:
In addition to our combined wind speed and direction sensors, we can also offer a 0-10V DC wind sensor with speed only. This unit comes as one complete assembly with the control box being mounted directly to the base of the wind sensor itself. With this unit all being mounted within one assembly it just needs connection via a single three core cable, (Gnd, 0-10V DC output, and 24V DC supply)
Again this unit is available in either a “Basic” or “Pro configuration with the bottom bearing the cup assembly of the “Pro” version being a ball race version as opposed to the sintered bronze one in the “Basic”.
