When adding a wind vane to your Wind Data Logger package, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you are adding it to one of our Starter or Basic Packages, you will need an Anemometer and wind vane Splitter Board to attach your wind vane using a Cat5 cable. Self-Contained Outdoor Packages use our Arctic Ultraflex Blue™ Cable with bare ends and do not require the splitter board. If you are not sure about whether you need a splitter board, please call or email your questions to us.
We also offer a Z-Boom that allows you to offset your Wind Vane on the same mast as your anemometer. The Z-Boom also allows you to install additional anemometers at different heights on the mast.
