Wind Speed and Direction Sensor OMC-160

Description

Observator’s OMC-160 comprises of a combined in-line wind speed and wind direction sensor. The system is robust, corrosion resistive and easy to install.

The wind speed sensor is a rotary-cup type, made from stainless steel. Rotation of the cup-unit generates pulses in an optical encoder which is directly connected to the internal microprocessor.

The wind direction sensor is a wind vane type, made from stainless steel. The wind vane drives a resolver, which is directly connected to the internal microprocessor. The microprocessor translates the sine and cosine output from the resolver.
