Met One 024A

Wind direction sensor

Part # 51083

024A wind sensor

The Met One 024A wind direction sensor provides azimuth data for use in micrometeorological measurements related to operational studies and research. This sensor is especially useful when a low starting threshold, a high damping ratio or a short delay distance is required. (For example, in making Paquill determinations or for use with sigma computers, both a high damping ratio and a short delay distance are mandatory performance criteria.)

The 024A is presently employed in continuous service in environments ranging from Antarctic cold to arid desert regions.

  • Precision wire-wound potentiometer
  • Built-in alignment and calibration fixture
  • Digital or analog measurement ability
  • Aluminum or Lexan cups available

What's the Easiest and Quickest Way to Start Collecting Data and Access it Anywhere?

The Answer's in the Cloud.

eTracker is a cellular modem and "virtual" cloud-based data logger in one (meaning you don't need to install a separate data logger). Simply connect your sensor and a power source to eTracker and you're done. Configure (or reconfigure) anytime from any Internet-connected device, and use Stevens-Connect to retrieve your data, or forward it to your favorite software system.
