Product code: WSFLEXIW1
A high quality wind monitoring system that is easy to install for immediate accurate wind measurement, complete with display to view data locally.
• Easy to install for immediate accurate wind measurement
• Measures wind speed and direction
• No moving parts, requires virtually no maintenance
• Complete 0 to 360° operation with no dead band
• Requires no calibration and is drop tested from 1m height
• 2 year warranty as standard
• WindSonic (Option 1) Wind Speed & Direction Sensor
• WindSonic Mounting Mast
• 15m RS232 Cable (between sensor & display unit)
• WS-15A Display Unit
• Power Supply Unit
The WindSonic Option 1 sensor used in this system has an RS232 output and has a cable distance of 15m. If cabling distances are longer than this we can quote as required. For cable lengths over 20m a WindSonic Option 2 sensor with RS422/485 output is required - please contact us for a quotation.
The sensor is linked with the RS232 cable to our IP65 rated WS-15A Display Unit providing a clear digital readout of wind speed and direction plus a wind direction arrow with cardinal points. The display enables set-up of an optional wind speed alarm and provides an RS232 data output to connect to a SpaceLogger W10 or SpaceLogger W8 Wireless data logger or PC.
The system comes complete with a 0.9m anodised aluminium mounting mast and mains plug power supply. 12V UK or World plug options are available.
Systems can be leased or rented, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please Note: All FlexiMet systems are supplied without lightning protection as standard. Should you require additional protection for your installation, please contact us for a quotation.
