The Wind Direction Sensor – Model 5710-00 is a professional quality sensor which makes it ideal for use in many applications. This Wind Direction Sensor offers a level of quality and reliability often found only in a very high priced unit. The Wind Direction Sensor’s thermoplastic and stainless steel components resist corrosion, and contribute to a high strength-to-weight ratio.
The Wind Direction Sensors employ a minimum number of parts while maximizing functional performance. The Wind Direction Sensor’s vane is directly connected to a precision conductive plastic potentiometer located in the main body. An analog voltage output directly proportional to the wind direction is produced by the Wind Direction Sensor when a constant DC excitation voltage is applied to the potentiometer. The Wind Direction Sensor’s potentiometer has superior linearity and low rotational friction. Supported by a stainless steel shaft, the Wind Direction Sensor’s vane rotates in shielded, instrument-grade, stainless steel bearings.
Installation of the Wind Direction Sensor – Model 5710-00 is easily accomplished with the optional Mounting Arm & Hardware available for mounting to a tower or standpipe mast. The Wind Direction Sensor includes 25 ft (7.6 m) of cable.
