What are Precautions for the Use of Anemometers?

Anemometer is a device used to measure wind speed. It is small and light, easy to carry and assemble. According to the working principle, it can be roughly divided into mechanical wind speed sensor and ultrasonic wind speed sensor. It can effectively obtain wind speed information. The shell is made of high-quality aluminum alloy profiles or polycarbonate composite materials, which are rain-proof, corrosion-resistant and anti-aging. It is an easy-to-use, safe and reliable intelligent instrument. Mainly used in meteorology, agriculture, ships and other fields, can be used outdoors for a long time. Pay attention to the following when using the wind speed sensor:

Two prohibitions
  1. It is forbidden to use the anemometer in a flammable gas environment.
  2. It is forbidden to put the wind speed sensor probe in flammable gas.
Seven don’t
  1. Do not disassemble or modify the anemometer.
  2. Do not store the probe and the anemometer body in the rain (can be used outdoors).
  3. Do not touch the sensor part inside the probe.
  4. Do not place the anemometer in a place with high temperature, high humidity, dust and direct sunlight.
  5. Do not wipe the wind speed sensor with volatile liquid.
  6. Do not drop or stress the anemometer.
  7. Do not touch the sensor part of the probe when the anemometer is electrified.
Three must

Be sure to use the anemometer correctly according to the instruction manual. During use, if the wind speed sensor emits abnormal smell, sound or smoke, or liquid flows into the anemometer, be sure to turn off the device immediately and remove the battery. When the anemometer is not used for a long time, be sure to remove the internal battery.

  1. The wind direction sensor is taken out of the packing box and assembled. Note that: the wind bar is inserted in the direction of the arrow. The front and rear weights of the wind vane should be balanced, and the front and rear wings should be in the same plane as the rotation axis. The northing lever and the northing line should be in the same direction.
  2. The anemometer component consists of a wind speed sensor, a wind direction sensor, and a sensor bracket. When assembling, connect the respective plug-ins first, then set them on the bracket sleeve, and tighten the screws.
  3. The working voltage of the sensor is usually DC 5V. Due to the built-in lightning protection device, the actual working voltage should not be higher than 6V.
