The 03301, manufacted by R. M. Young, is the wind vane included with our Wind Sentry Sets (03002, 03001). Although some customers have valid applications that require monitoring wind speed only (without direction), monitoring wind direction only (without wind speed) provides little useful information. For this reason, the 03301 is available for two purposes:
|Measurement Description||Wind direction|
|Operating Temperature Range||-50° to +50°C (assuming non-riming conditions)|
|Electrical Range||352° (8° open)|
|Sensor||Balanced vane; 16 cm turning radius|
|Delay Distance||0.5 m (1.6 ft ) 50% recovery|
|Transducer Excitation||Requires regulated dc voltage (15 Vdc maximum)|
|Transducer Output||Analog dc voltage proportional to wind direction angle with regulated excitation voltage supplied by the data logger|
|Vane Length||22 cm (8.7 in.)|
|Weight||170 g (6 oz)|
Note: The following shows notable compatibility information. It is not a comprehensive list of all compatible or incompatible products.
The wind vane is measured by the BrHalf Instruction in CRBasic, and by Instruction 4 (Excite-Delay-SE) in Edlog.

The wind vane does not use bearings, so replacement is not necessary. Typically, the part that needs replacing is the potentiometer. Campbell Scientific recommends factory replacement.
