Wireless Anemometer, 3-Cup, Wind-powered

Regular price $495.00

Wind speed measurement, wireless 916 mHz frequency, patented wind-powered electronics, manufactured in USA. 

Etesian’s patented, wireless, and wind-powered anemometer is an excellent option for crane, fountain, nautical, and any at-height application. Install this wireless anemometer once and never worry about replacing a battery. Etesian Wind Sensors are powered by the wind that they are measuring.  An internal generator provides all the necessary power.  No batteries to change.  No waiting for sunrise or the clouds to burn off.  No worries from lightning strikes that could track through wiring into expensive control systems.
