Technical Specifications Wind Direction Vane Output and Range Analog DC voltage output proportional to wind direction angle with excitation voltage supplied by data logger, 360° continuous mechanical rotation, direction range, 10k potentiometer, 352° electrical, 8° open or dead band. Wind Direction Vane Performance Threshold (0.9 mph or .402 m/s) Accuracy (Potentiometer linearity within 1%) Life expectancy (50 million revolutions or 4-6 years operation) Materials of Construction Shaft tower (316 stainless steel) Shaft (Hardened 303 stainless steel) Wind Vane housing (316 stainless steel) Wind Vane and Hub Assembly (316 stainless steel) Bearings (Double shielded and hardened stainless steel balls) Electrical Technical Data Direction range (352° electrical with 8° open or dead band) Signal (Analog DC voltage from precision conductive potentiometer, resistance 10K ) Power Requirements Regulated potentiometer excitation (1 VDC to 15 VDC), Power rating (1.5 Watts @ 70°C) The D5-1263-1 Wind Direction Vane was speci cally designed for locations with high wind speeds or in harsh industrial environments. All D5 Series Wind Vane components are manufactured from solid stainless steel bar stock for superior strength and corrosion resistance. The wind vane assembly utilizes a heavy duty stainless steel vane blade which is welded to the vane shaft for superior strength. The vane rotates on two precision grade, shielded, stainless steel ball bearing, which can be easily replaced in minutes right on site without disconnecting the sensor cable or the sensor from its mounting. The D5 Series Wind Vane has a sealed 10K potentiometer element which creates an analog DC voltage output signal for directional degrees. All D5 wind vanes have our unique quick connect lever lock mounting system. This system allows the sensor to be easily adjusted to True North during the initial installation or removed in seconds if required. Note: Sensor has a 1.0” Female NPT Connection for mounting.
