Air Quality Wind Monitor
The 05305 is a lightweight, high-performance wind-speed and wind-direction sensor designed specifically for air-quality measurements. It is more responsive but less rugged than the other wind monitors.
The 05305 Wind Monitor-AQ is made out of light-weight, UV-stabilized thermoplastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum fittings. The thermoplastic material resists corrosion from sea air environments and atmospheric pollutants. It uses stainless-steel precision-grade ball bearings for the propeller shaft and vertical shaft bearings.
The 05305 measures wind speed with a helicoid-shaped, four-blade propeller. Rotation of the propeller produces an ac sine wave that has a frequency directly proportional to wind speed. The ac signal is induced in a transducer coil by a six-pole magnet mounted on the propeller shaft. The coil resides on the non-rotating central portion of the main mounting assembly, eliminating the need for slip rings and brushes.
Compatible with most Campbell Scientific data loggers
Lower starting threshold, faster response, and higher accuracy than the other wind monitors
Meets or exceeds requirements of the following regulatory agencies: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Agency, and American Nuclear Society
Compatible with the CWS900-series interfaces, allowing it to be used in a wireless sensor network
