The air quality is a lightweight, high-performance wind-speed and wind-direction sensor designed specifically for your air-quality measurements. It is more responsive but less rugged than the other wind monitors. It provides a lower starting threshold, faster response, and higher accuracy than the other wind monitors. The wind monitor’s design emphasizes simplicity and lightweight construction. It is made out of rigid, UV-stabilized thermoplastic, with stainless-steel and anodized-aluminum fittings. The thermoplastic material resists corrosion from sea-air environments and atmospheric pollutants. The wind monitor uses stainless-steel, precision-grade ball bearings for the propeller shaft and vertical shaft bearings.

Benefits and Features

  • Compatible with most Buraq Integrated Solutions data loggers
  • Constructed with thermoplastic material that resists corrosion from sea-air environments and atmospheric pollutants
  • Lower starting threshold, faster response, and higher accuracy than the other wind monitors
  • Meets or exceeds requirements of the following regulatory agencies: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Agency, and American Nuclear Society
  • Compatible with the LLAC4 4-channel Low-Level AC-Conversion Module, which increases the number of anemometers one data logger can measure
  • Compatible with the CWS900-series interfaces, allowing it to be used in a wireless sensor network
