Gill UVW Anemometer
The three Propeller Anemometer sensors are mounted at right angles on a common mast. Each sensor measures the wind component parallel with its axis of rotation. Propeller response as a function of wind angle approximates the cosine law, allowing true wind velocity and direction to be calculated. The UVW Anemometer is designed for maximum sensitivity at lower wind speeds. Optional carbon fiber thermoplastic (CFT) propellers are available for applications requiring greater range and durability. Rain and dust are excluded from the precision bearings by a continuous duty air blower that keeps the instrument under a slight positive pressure. For single axis applications, individual propeller anemometers are available separately (see Model 27106)
