Vaisala Wind Set WA25

  • Non-freezing, all-weather wind set for arctic conditions
  • Fully heated anemometer and wind vane (heating in cups and vanes, sensor bodies and bearings prevent snow build-up and ice formation)
  • High performance, accurate wind speed and wind direction measurement
  • Low measurement starting threshold
  • Conical anemometer cups provide excellent linearity
Technical Specifications
Wind speed
Sensor/transducer typecup anemometer/opto-chopper
Measurement range0.4...75 m/s
Starting threshold<0.5 m/s*
Accuracy (range 0.4...60 m/s) with characteristic±0.17 m/s **
transfer function with transfer function U=0.1xR±0.5 m/s
* Measured with cup wheel in position least favoured by flow direction. Optimum position gives approx. 0.35 m/s threshold.
** Standard deviation.
