The K360V sensor is a high precision wind vane with continuous 360º rotation and no dead band and a resolution of just 0.35º. Repeatability is a key factor in the production process of a wind vane meant to be used in wind resource assessment. The K360V wind vane has such a high repeatability that no individual calibration is required for each individual wind vane which means that data logger settings can be left with the factory slope and offset. The wind vane is designed for use in wind resource assessment, solar resource assessment as well as meteorology and environmental monitoring.

The K360V wind vane features a very low starting threshold of less than 0.4 m/s, an accuracy of +/- 1.4º and is built from high strength anodized aluminium and stainless steel. The wind vane is designed for mounting on a 25 mm (or 1”) diameter tube.

Optional two per box packages to reduce transport costs.

Add a Geovane to your wind vane

Given the impact incorrect wind direction measurements have, the recently updated IEC61400.12.1 (2017) now requires complete assessment of wind direction measurement uncertainties. By adding a Geovane to your wind measurement campaign you will get the most accurate wind direction data available on the market.
