Product Description

The NRG 40 anemometer is designed for the acquisition of wind speed.

NRG 40C

The 40C bearings and low moment of inertia permit very rapid response to gusts and lulls. A four-pole magnet induces a sine wave voltage into a coil, producing an output signal with frequency proportional to wind speed.

NRG 40H

The 40H is based on the NRG 40 C. This Hall Effect version is engineered for electrically noisy environments and instrumentation that requires a square wave signal.

The 40H’s Hall Effect switch produces a high-level square wave voltage signal with a frequency proportional to wind speed. This signal is easy to interface to a wide range of industrial devices including turbine controllers, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and data loggers. A 5-26V DC excitation voltage with 5 mA of current is required.

Both of the anemometers are constructed of rugged Lexan cups, the 40H is molded in one piece for repeatable performance. A PVC terminal boot is included with each anemometer for additional protection from the elements.

The specifications below are from the NRG 40C
