Classic Wind Speed Sensor / 3-Cup Anemometer
Inspeed's Classic Wind Speed Sensor - Anemometer
Inspeed's rugged and affordable Classic 3-Cup Anemometer is a high quality, Inspeed-designed, Made In America wind speed sensor a variety of wire lengths available. We call it "Classic" because it's the one that got us started back in 2005, and still going strong.
The Classic wind speed sensor uses a reed switch as the active element, with a magnet in the rotor that causes it to close momentarily once per rotation. The conversion factor from pulse rate to wind speed is in the specifications below.
The base product has 25' of wire - but we offer standard options for 50', 100', and 200' feet. If you need more - reach out to us - we can do up to 1,000' no problem!
The shaft has a Tungsten Carbide ball pressed into the end, which rides on a sapphire. The result is very low friction - for low wind speed sensitivity, and basically zero wear - for long life.
The rotor is designed by Inspeed based on years of experience with some tough users (mainly storm chasers!). It is light and strong - to give you years of dependable service.
The mounting bracket can be attached to just about anything so it is easy to get up and running. the single-screw mount to the head means that you can pivot the head relative to the bracket if you need to make fine adjustments to make the rotor completely level.
The Inspeed Classic anemometer is based on simplicity, ruggedness, and a commitment to precision and accuracy.
