Anemometer for Papago METEO. Wind speed measurement up to 89 m/s. Complete sensor including mounting accessories for mounting on pole or pipe. Anemometer arm with 12 m of cable. We strongly recommend using surge protector.
Cable length: 12 m
Operating temperature: -40 to +65 °C
Wind direction accuracy: ±3°
Wind speed range: 0.5 to 89 m/s
Wind speed accuracy: 1 m/s or ±5%, whichever is greater
Wind cups diameter: 43 mm
Installation on a pole, post, pipe or surface
Mounting holes are 32 to 44 mm apart that allow the anemometer to be attached on a wooden post or surface. With the supplied U-bolts, the anemometer can be mounted on a pole having an outside diameter ranging from 32 to 44 mm.
To ensure correct orrientation of the wind vane, mount the anemometer so that the arm points true north.
For best results, place the anemometer at least 2 m above surrounding obstruction such as trees or buildings that obstruct wind flow.
If mounting on a roof, mount the anemometer at least 2 m above the roof apex.
The standard for meteorological and aviation applications is to place the anemometer 10 m above the ground Seek professional help for this type of installation.
The standard for agricultural application is to place the anemometer 2 m above the ground. This is important for evapotranspiration (ET) calculations.
