ARCO SDI-12 · Wind sensor


Wind sensor


  • hydrological and agro-meteorological applications
  • solar-powered weather stations

Optimised for low current consumption

All sensors of the ARCO series are very robust, compact and extremely reliable. Due to its low energy consumption, the ARCO SDI-12 is also particularly suitable for solar-powered weather stations.

For a long service life we use corrosion-resistant materials: The housing and the measuring elements are made of seawater-resistant aluminium and stainless steel. The cup rotor, the wind vane and the housing are anodized. The ARCO SDI-12 is a high quality yet cost effective solution.

  • low current consumption: < 4 mA at 12 VDC
  • particularly low starting values: 0.3 m/s
  • quick and easy installation
  • wind vane and 3-arm cup rotor exchangeable
