There are a big variety of wind sensor that somebody can use in a Neutron Monitor Station. We can present a number that already used.
a) We can use the Wind Speed Sensor NRG #40C cup anemometer by NRG Company that is a 3-cup anemometer with 1 m/s to 96 m/s (2.2 mph to 214 mph) (highest recorded)range and frequency output so it is needed a counter input for the measurement. It is completed with Wind Direction Sensor NRG #200P cup anemometer by NRG Company that is continuous rotation potentiometric wind direction vane and has a Analog DC voltage from conductive plastic potentiometer, 10K ohms as output so somebody needs an analog input in the acquisistion system for that measurement. For more information you can contact Dr. Christos Sarlanis csarl(at)isnet.gr.
b) We can use the combined Wind Speed and Direction Sensor Model 05103 anemometer by RM Young Company. The Wind Monitor is a high performance wind sensor. Rugged, corrosion-resistant construction makes it ideal for a wide range of wind measuring applications.
The wind speed sensor is a four blade helicoid propeller. Propeller rotation produces an AC sine wave voltage signal. The wind direction sensor is a rugged yet lightweight vane. Vane angle is sensed by a precision potentiometer. Constructed of UV stabilized plastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum fittings, the sensor mounts on standard 1 inch pipe. Model 05103V offers calibrated 0-5 VDC outputs, Model 05103L provides a calibrated 4-20 mA current signal for each channel so it is needed a analog to digital input for the measurement. This company have many models for High Speed Wind and very cold places. For more information you can contact Dr. Christos Sarlanis csarl(at)isnet.gr.
c) We can use the combined Wind Speed and Direction Ultrasonic Sensor Model 85000 ultrasonic anemometer by RM Young Company The YOUNG Model 85000 Ultrasonic Anemometer is a 2-axis, no-moving-parts wind sensor. It is ideal for general meteorological applications requiring accurate, reliable wind measurement.The sensor features durable, corrosion-resistant construction with opposing pairs of ultrasonic transducers secured in a streamlined molded frame. The 85000 is fully wind-tunnel tested and calibrated to provide accurate wind measurement over a wide operating range. Voltage outputs are provided for wind speed and wind direction. A variety of serial output formats are also available on the standard sensor. The sensor installs on readily available 1 inch (IPS) pipe. The output can be RS-232 or RS-485 so it is needed a RS-232 orRS-485 port for the measurement. This company have many ultrasonic models for High Speed Wind and very cold places.
