Xplorer 4 Miniature Anemometer

From Instruments Direct, the Skywatch Xplorer 4 is a rotating vane anemometer and thermometer with in-built electronic compass, pressure and altitude function. The comprehensive meter provides balanced, instant readings without compromising on performance or functionality. Constructed from high-quality materials and stainless steel back for added protection, the Xplorer 4 anemometer can even withstand short term immersion in water at a depth of up to 1 meter. This extremely accurate instrument is ideal for outdoor sports enthusiasts and engineers.

Compact in design the Skywatch Xplorer 4 uses high a precision rotating vane to deliver exact readings according to Swiss standards. Even at lower speeds. The simple one-button operation allows the user to select from a range of nine modes. Six giving instant wind speed measurements and a further three giving ’History ’modes. With an LCD display and backlight function, all recordings are clearly shown on the front screen, even in low light conditions. To help conserve battery life, an auto-off feature after 1 minute will ensure your Xplorer 4 will not let you down, even at the most critical moments.

Rotating vane anemometers are used to measure environmental conditions quickly and accurately. The information and data they provide are vital in a wide range of applications and environments. They are essential for reporting, forecasting and planning and more importantly health and safety. Some of the more common applications are

• HVAC and construction
• Sailing, boating and windsurfing
• Climbing and hiking
• Aviation, wind direction, airflow and gust
• Weather stations and meteorological studies
• Calibration laboratories

Q - Is there a recommended replacement battery?
A - Yes, the Xplorer 4 anemometer uses a 3V CR2032 lithium battery for its power supply. See RS part number 866-0672
