How does the Wind speed and direction sensor work?

Wind speed sensor working principle

Wind speed sensor is a physical device used to measure wind speed. The wind generated by the airflow drives the top three wind cups to rotate, and the central axis drives the internal sensing element to generate an output signal, which can be used to calculate the wind speed.

Wind direction sensor working principle

The wind direction sensor is a physical device that measures and transmits wind direction information. It works through the rotation of a wind vane arrow and transmits its measurement information to the coaxial encoder board, and at the same time outputs the relevant value of the wind direction.

Wind sensor usage problem

When this happens to the Wind speed and direction sensor, it may be a bearing rotation problem caused by loose internal components. Measure the Wind speed and direction sensor after the device is powered on. If the sensor is faulty, contact the manufacturer to replace the sensor. Manually rotate the wind cup at the top of the wind speed sensor. If the cup does not rotate smoothly, it indicates that there is a problem with the device connection. You can perform this operation under the guidance of technical personnel.

If the old wind speed sensor is not sensitive during the working process, you need to clean the surface of the sensor first to see if there are obstacles around the wind cup to prevent its rotation. Such as shielding leaves, icing on the wind cup, sensor tilt, etc. Even a small feather stuck in a wind cup can make a big difference.

Secondly, if the above problems are eliminated, the sensor needs to be removed manually to clean the dirt and other stolen goods inside. Therefore, users should maintain and clean the wind speed sensor in time to ensure the service life of the equipment.

Finally, if the wind speed sensor is used for too long, the internal components are easy to age or fall off. At this time, it is necessary to replace the accessories of the wind speed sensor or purchase a new sensor directly.
