Compass / Serial Interface



The YOUNG ELECTRONIC COMPASS/ SERIAL INTERFACE provides accurate "true" wind indication with serial data output for use with Young wind sensors.

Ideal for mobile and portable applications, the 32500 Electronic Compass utilizes a solid state compass module for accurate magnetic heading data. The compass module is combined with high resolution interface circuitry to generate useful "true" wind data from the wind sensor. Auxiliary sensor inputs allow connection of other meteorological sensors such as temperature, humidity and barometric pressure sensors. All analog signals are converted to serial format for clear transmission. For applications not requiring a compass, Model 32400 Serial Interface offers the benefits of serial output without the compass circuitry. The serial interface greatly simplifies connection of meteorological sensors to recording electronics with serial inputs. By transmitting the signal in serial form, sensor data can be carried over great distances using a minimum number of conductors. The digital signal is more resistant to electrical interference and errors from line losses. Each model is supplied in a weather resistant enclosure. Model 32500 comes with a mounting adapter to fit on the same vertical mast as YOUNG wind sensors. Model 32400 has a convenient clamp for attachment to round pipe.
