Rugged anemometer with dual digital display handles speeds from 3 mph to over 125 mph. Comes with exterior grade wire. The Pole Mount anemometer is great for home or mobile use where AC power is not available. Pole not included.
Knowing the wind speed is not only useful - it's informative, it's accurate, and it's fun. The Vortex Pole Mount Anemometer is an inexpensive way to provide you with accurate wind speed in places where AC power may not be available.
Mount the head and rotor 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 red & black wires and Voila!
The Vortex Pole Mount Anemometer display is a high quality, Cateye Velo8 bicycle computer (please note!) . Speed range is approx. 5 to around 150 mph, although the calibration has only been verified from 5 to 50 - we did not find a wind tunnel with 150 mph calibration facilities! Check out the wind sensor specifications for details. Battery life is around 1,000 hours of continuous use. Some we have tested on our home lasted for well over a year on the original batteries!
"Thursday morning 103 mph clocked just north of Eufaula, OK on a meso that came almost over head. National weather service advised of wind speeds at 100+ just letting you know it works. Just needed an extra pair of shorts! "
