The Model 034B Wind Sensor combines wind speed and direction measurements into a single sensing unit. It installs in minutes and will provide accurate, long term, continuous monitoring in hostile environments. The sensor uses a quick-connect sensor cable which may extend hundreds of feet without affecting measurement performance.
The 034B is designed to operate within a temperature range of -30° to +70° C and with wind speeds up to 167 mph. Wind speed is measured using a sealed reed switch which provides a series of pulses at a rate proportional to wind speed. Aluminum cups are used for durability and strength.
Wind direction is measured using an aluminum vane directly coupled to a precision potentiometer. Variations in wind direction produce a corresponding change of voltage, which lends itself to both digital and analog measurement systems.
Mounting the 034B with the alignment adapter (PN 2954) provides alignment maintenance even if the sensor is removed. The alignment adapter mounts the 034B Wind Sensor to tubing or pipe.
Improved potentiometer mounting, makes replacement and field re-alignment even easier. When replacement becomes necessary.
High quality hard anodized aluminum and stainless steel components, insure long life with minimal maintenance. The Model 034B Wind Sensor uses a quick-connect sensor cable. Cable length may extend hundreds of feet without affecting measurement performance.
