The YOUNG Model 09101 Wind Monitor-SE measures horizontal wind speed and direction.  Using the same propeller as the Model 05103, a frequency signal is induced into a stationary coil for speed and an optical encoder that is coupled to the vane is used to determine wind direction.  These signals are converted to either a serial or analog voltage output by means of an onboard microprocessor.  The absolute encoder overcomes the disadvantage of the deadband region found in the potentiometer used on other models.  UV stabilized plastic with stainless steel and anodized aluminum parts are used in the construction of the sensor.  The sensor mounts on a standard 1-inch IPS pipe.  A mounting orientation ring is included that engages with the base of the sensor to retain orientation when the sensor is removed for maintenance.  Terminations are made in a junction box at the base of the sensor by small clamp-style connectors (no special connectors are required).

The YOUNG Model 09106 Wind Monitor-SE-MA is a modified version of the Model 09101.  This model utilizes long-lasting, corrosion resistant, ceramic bearings and ruggedized vertical components for the additional rigors of a marine environment.
