Evaporator Pan Wind Run Sensor

Model EP-WR

P/N EP-102-WR


The Model EP-WRT Evaporation Pan Wind Run sensor is a Totalizing Anemometer equipped with a counter to provide a simple, yet precise, method of determining average wind speed and total air passage. The Totalizing Anemometer with continuous counting provides a record of the total horizontal wind movement past a fixed point, measured to the nearest 0.1 mile.  For maximum operational reliability, the sensor uses a sealed magnetic read switch. This switch produces a series of contact closures at a rate proportional to wind speed.

T h e robust aluminum cup assembly has a distance constant of less than 15 feet.

  The polycarbonate cups have a threshold of approximately 1 mph. The cups are beaded and are attached to the hub by sturdy arms. The turning radius is 4.25". Self-lubricating stainless steel bearings support the anemometer shaft.

The flanged base of the instrument is pre-drilled, permitting mounting on a wooden, metal, or concrete support. In an evaporation station the anemometer is typically mounted on the platform supporting the evaporation pan.
