Vector W200P

Description

The W200P wind vane is made from anodized aluminum alloys and stain­less steels for all the exposed parts of the wind vane. Combined with a hard plastic (upper) bearing and precision ball-races, the result is an ins­trument suitable for continuous exposure to the weather, with a long service interval.

Product Description

The W200P wind vane is designed for the acquisi­tion of the horizontal wind direction and incorporates a preci­sion wire-wound potentiometer as a shaft angle transducer, enabling wind direction sensed by the F20 fin to be accurate­ly determined when connected to suitable measuring equip­ment, such as a data logger or PLC.

The W200P wind vane is made from anodized aluminum alloys and stain­less steels for all the exposed parts of the wind vane. Combined with a hard plastic (upper) bearing and precision ball-races, the result is an ins­trument suitable for continuous exposure to the weather, with a long service interval.

The W200P wind vane is fully compatible with all the data loggers manufactured by Kintech Engineering including the EOL Zenith and Orbit 360.

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.
