WindObserver™ 90

The WindObserver™ 90 from Gill Instruments measures the highest wind speeds in extreme weather environments such as typhoons and hurricanes and is available with optional heating. The sensor provides data via RS422/RS485 bidirectional link, allowing several units to be networked together and data logged on demand.

With innovative transducer design, this anemometer boasts a very high wind speed range of 0 – 90 m/s (0-201 mph) and gives an output status indicating the validity of data so that you can be confident that the instrument is providing accurate information. With IP66-rated stainless-steel construction, this anemometer meets the stringent performance criteria specified by wind turbine manufacturers, airports, marine, oil and gas production, and meteorological organizations worldwide.
