Onset Computer Corp., a leading supplier of data loggers, offers a line of new Wind Sensor Adapters that extend the range of wind monitoring applications of the company’s weather stations.
The Wind Sensor Adapters connect the company’s research-grade weather stations to RM Young, Inc.’s wind speed and direction sensors.
“While we already offer a number of research-grade wind sensors, linking up with RM Young sensors opens up many new harsh-environment applications such as wind site evaluation, wind turbine performance monitoring, coastal weather monitoring, and air quality monitoring,” says Paul Gannett, product marketing manager for Onset. “Customers can now combine best-in-class data logging weather stations with some of the industry’s most robust wind speed and direction sensors.”
Onset’s line of research-grade weather stations, which start at $215, include HOBO U30 Remote Monitoring Systems, 4-channel HOBO Micro Stations, and 15-channel HOBO Weather Stations. The systems offer plug-and-play operation, and can be equipped with a range of sensors for measuring air temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, barometric pressure, and more. A range of data communications options are available, including GSM cellular, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and direct USB.
The new Wind Sensor Adapters are priced from $150 and became available from Onset on March 31.
