Anemometer Wind Speed Sensor

This anemometer measures wind speed! As it rotates, it drives a small DC generatorwhich produces DC voltage. The voltage output increases from 0 to 1.2V.

  • Suitable for DIY Weather Stations, Raspberry Pi and Arduino Weather Station projects and other projects where a microcontroller is used to measure windspeed.
  • Wind Speed Measuring Range: 0 to 62mph
  • Pinout:
    • Red: Analog Signal Out - values from 0 to 1.2V DC (connect to microcontroller analog input pin)
    • Black: Ground - Ground 0V (connect to microcontroller GND)
  • Formulas for calculating wind speed from signal output voltage:
    • Voltage (V)*90=KM/H (wind speed)
    • Voltage (V)*25=M/S (wind speed)
Is this anemometer waterproof?
Yes, it can handle rain and snowy weather conditions as long as it is not soaked / submerged.

Can it be hooked up to power with 120v or is there one I\'m confused about how it operates any feedback would be appreciated.
No power input is needed. As it rotates, it drives a small DC generator which produces DC voltage. The voltage output increases from 0 to 1.2V depending on the wind speed.
