This rugged anemometer with dual digital display handles speeds from 5 mph to over 125 mph. Comes with 25' (8m) of audio grade wire, with a 1/8" (2.5mm) jack connection to the display (unlike the Pole Mount anemometer which comes with exterior grade wire and no connector). The Vortex FlexWire anemometer is great for mobile use where AC power is not available. Pole not included.
The Vortex FlexWire anemometer is an affordable, affordable way to provide you with wind speed in places where AC power may not be available.
The jack connection and flexible wire make the unit more suitable for mobile use than the standard Pole Mount Anemometer, whose exterior grade wire is more rigid, and which does not include a connector.
You can mount this anemometer to your own pole or roof bracket, bring the wire in through a window or some other hole, and stick the display on the glass, a window, or anywhere you want.
Connect the display and Voila!
The Vortex FlexWire portable anemometer includes a high quality, Cateye Velo8 brand bicycle computer (please note!) to display wind speed. It also captures and stores MAX and AVERAGE wind speed, and includes wind mile odometers and a clock (basically stuff that cyclists care about but also apply to wind). Speed range is approx. 5 to around 150 mph. Calibration has only been verified from 5 to 50 - we did not find a wind tunnel with 150 mph calibration facilities! Battery life is around 1,000 hours of continuous use. Some anemometers we tested on our home lasted for well over a year on the original battery!
