The Wind Alarm & Switch is an affordable, quality, high performance device for turning devices on and off based on the speed of the wind. It was conceived largely by solar tracking device company Heliotrack. Here are the details:

The WindController includes the following standard features:

  • Two independent relays rated to 250VAC/10A (data sheet here)
    IMPORTANT: Use extreme caution when switching high voltages. Inspeed is not responsible for any injury or damage resulting from use of these devices.
    Learn more about terms of use.
  • Two timer modes: time between pulses and pulses per period.
  • Selectable units: mph, kph, knots, feet/sec, meters/sec, and user programmable
  • Wind speed averaging time: If pulses/period mode is selected, variable from 2 to 60 seconds
  • Trigger method: either relay can be triggered by either instant or average wind speed
  • Trigger threshold: user programmable from 1 to 255 (instant or average wind speed)
  • Turn off method: manual or user programmable from 1 to 255 (instant or average wind speed)
  • Latch timer: if selected, can be set from 1 to 255 minutes
  • Clear top box
  • 12VDC (110VAC) Power supply included
