Solid State Wind Speed & Direction Sensor
The Model WS-MMW-005 Solid State Anemometer is a 2-dimensional, no-moving-parts wind sensor. The sensor uses a special solid state device to measure wind speed and wind direction based on the temperature differences on the chip surface. These temperature differences are processed by a microprocessor in the sensor to produce serial output signals indicating wind speed and wind direction. The sensor base attaches onto a flat surface with 3 bolts and the sensor head clips in to allow easy orientation to North or to the front of the vehicle or vessel in mobile applications.
