Dual Analog Wind Speed / Direction
The WSD-QD is an analog, precision anemometer designed for long term unattended operation in most environments. The potentiometer meets stringent military specifications for sand, dust, salt spray and fungus resistance. Constructed from anodized aluminum and stainless steel.
- Wind speed and direction combined within a single sensor
- Durable aluminum and stainless steel construction
- Low starting threshold
- Stainless steel bearings
- Easy, quick installation
- Highly accurate
- Extremely low power consumption
The WSD-QD is designed to operate in temperatures ranging from -30°C to +70°C and wind speeds of up to 155mph. Wind speed measurements are obtained through the use of a sealed reed switch, providing a series of pulses proportional to wind speed. The wind speed sensor is equipped with aluminum cups for durability. Wind direction is measured with an aluminum vane coupled to a precision potentiometer.
The sensor has dual cabling terminating in military style bayonet connectors for connecting to all Axiom Dataloggers. The WSD-QD has been field proven over many years and has demonstrated its reliability under remote, hostile conditions.
It is not recommended for heavy snow and ice conditions.
