This rugged anemometer with dual digital display handles speeds from 5 mph to over 125 mph. Comes with 25' (8m) of audio grade wire, with a 1/8" (2.5mm) jack connection to the display (unlike the Pole Mount anemometer which comes with exterior grade wire and no connector). The Vortex FlexWire anemometer is great for mobile use where AC power is not available. Pole not included.
The jack connection and flexible wire make the unit more suitable for mobile use than the standard Pole Mount Anemometer, whose exterior grade wire is more rigid, and which does not include a connector. You can mount this anemometer to your own pole or roof bracket, bring the wire in through a window or some other hole, and stick the display on the glass, a window, or anywhere you want. Connect the display and Voila!
The Vortex FlexWire portable anemometer includes a high quality, Cateye Velo8 brand bicycle computer to display wind speed. It also captures and stores MAX and AVERAGE wind speed. Calibration has only been verified from 5 to 50 mph. (We did not find a wind tunnel with 150 mph calibration facilities!) Battery life is around 1,000 hours of continuous use. Some anemometers we tested on our home lasted for well over a year on the original battery!
Important Note About Average Wind Speed:
* WORKAROUND: if you want to know the real average wind speed - even with spells near zero, do the following: reset the computer, note the time. When desired, simply divide the total number of wind "miles" on the display by the number of hours since reset.
