MeteoWind 2

Anemometer with a wind vane. Exceeds WMO and MEASNET Class 1 accuracy standards for meteorology & wind resource assessment. Very low 4mA combined power consumption and integrated triple layer lightning & surge protection for reliable
operation. Protected oversize bearings with high dirt and weather resistance proven to provide long-term measurement stability & reliability in dirty & dusty environments.


Serviceable bearing & cups with high dirt resistance

• Serviceability of rotor bearing, anemometer cups and wind vane
• Special double-arm reinforced cup design with over-size bearings for robustness.
• Highest level of 3 stage lightning, EMC, Surge & ESD protection
• Industry standard RS-485 output
• Simple & robust MODBUS RTU and ASCII communication protocol is user selectable
• Long-term tested dirt resistance in highly dusty environments with salt-spray
• All models feature a weather proof locking bayonet connector.

Dual arm reinforced cup design for all weather reliability

• WMO & MEASNET conforming wind speed and direction.
• 10Hz sampling rate to accurately capture wind gusts.
• Fast response and minimal over-speeding for accurate
wind gust measurement.
• Robust two arm reinforced rotor cup design
• Special flat elliptical cups offer superb snow shedding
with very good hail resistance
• All-metal replaceable wind direction vane.
• Strong all-metal anodized-aluminum body

Measurement standards of anemometer & wind vane
Range Resolution Accuracy Sampling rate
Wind speed 0-80 m/s gust 0.01m/s < 1% of measured value (0.3 – 50 m/s) or < ±0.2 m/s ±0.05m/s (4-16m/s) with MEASNET CALIBRATION 10Hz @ 3 pulses per revolution
Wind direction 0-360° 2° (no dead-spot) 10Hz
Linearity R2 > 0.99995 MEASNET/IEC 61400-12-1:2005
Tilt angle sensitivity Cosine response, see graph. (Horizontal wind speed measurement)
