Wind Speed and Direction Sensors

The following sensors are all proven to provide excellent performance in challenging New Zealand conditions.

Lufft UMB Family of Weather Sensors

The UMB range are compact intelligent weather sensors available in a range of configurations to match what you want to measure

Cardrona, NZ, Photo supplied by Geoff Wayatt

Lufft Ventus UMB Ultrasonic Wind Sensor

This sensor is made to withstand the most rugged conditions.

MAC3 Wind Alarm

Maximum's MAC3 Wind Speed Alarm & Controller is used to measure and display wind speed and allows the user to set two different wind speed readings at which they would like to be notified, both visually and audibly, when the wind meets either set-point.

Maximum Type 40 Anemometer

Manufacturers of low cost rugged wind speed sensors

NRG 200P Wind Direction Vane

The NRG #200P continuous rotation potentiometric wind direction vane is a robust low cost wind vane suitable for a multitude of applications.

RM Young 05103 Wind Monitor

The 05103 RM Young Wind Monitor is a high performance, rugged combined wind speed and direction sensor. Its simplicity and corrosion-resistant construction make it ideal for a wide range of wind measuring applications

Vector A100LK / A100LM Low-Power Anemometers

This anemometer is offered to satisfy those low-power applications requiring an anemometer offering a pulse/frequency output while consuming little supply current and operating from a supply as low as 5v.

Vector A101M Anemometer

A photo electronic anemometer in which a multi-slotted disc turns with the rotor spindle and interrupts the infra-red light beam in an Opto-Schmitt switch integrated circuit.

Vector W200P Potentiometer Windvane

Vectors most popular wind vane the W200P Potentiometer Windvane, is designed to withstand all weather conditions.

Vector W200P/L (Low Torque) Potentiometer Windvane

The W200P/L Low Torque Potentiometer Windvane has a lower torque than the standard W200P potentiometer windvane, allowing increased sensitivity at lower windspeeds, however the gap and "deadband" at north are larger and the potentiometer is less robust.
