Wind Direction Sensor With Modbus Output
The Wind Direction Sensor is is a professional meteorological sensor used to measure horizontal wind direction. It consists of two parts, the body, and the vane. It measures the Wind Direction in degree (°).
The Wind Direction Sensor can be used for many reasons, such as the interpretation of the values of modules temperature, as a strong wind blowing from the North, for example, can cool the panel. It is also used is to document warranty claims related to the damage caused by the wind. The Wind Direction Sensor with Modbus Output is compatible with all Dataloggers supporting Modbus RTU Protocol. It is supplied with mounting facility and cable.
