05305-L R. M. Young Air Quality Wind Monitor
The wind monitors are lightweight instruments that measure wind speed and direction. Manufactured by R. M. Young, the wind monitors are cabled for use with our dataloggers. The wind monitors' design emphasizes simplicity and lightweight construction. They are made out of rigid, UV-stabilized thermoplastic with stainless-steel and anodized-aluminum fittings. The thermoplastic material resists corrosion from sea-air environments and atmospheric pollutants. The wind monitors use stainless-steel, precision-grade ball bearings for the propeller shaft and vertical shaft bearings. The 05305 Wind Monitor-AQ is a high-performance wind-speed and wind-direction sensor designed specifically for air-quality measurements. It provides a lower starting threshold, faster response, and higher accuracy than the other wind monitors. However, to achieve the superior performance, the 05305 is less ruggedly constructed. The Wind Monitor-AQ meets or exceeds the requirements published by the following regulatory agencies: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Agency, and American Nuclear Society.
