WindSensor P2546D-OPR Cup Anemometer

Overview

The WindSensor P2546-OPR Cup Anemometer combines unrivaled performance with the only IEC 61400-12-1 compliant classification on the market. Originally designed for marine environments, the P2546-OPR is ideally suited for wind resource assessment and power performance studies both onshore and offshore.

WindSensor offers three versions of the P2546-OPR sensor. This version, the P2546D-OPR, contains an electronic switching circuit activated by magnets mounted on the rotating shaft. This produces a switching output signal with frequency proportional to wind speed.

We also offer the P2546A-OPR reed switch version and the P2546C-OPR coil version.

P2546-OPR features

  • One-piece rotor anemometer head (OPR)
  • Durable construction with anodized aluminum and stainless steel
  • Low threshold speed
  • Short distance constant
  • Negligible overspeeding
  • Angular response independent of wind speed
  • Fully tested temperature performance
  • Symmetrical geometry
  • No external power source
  • MEASNET calibrated
