Sunmeter Pro Wind – Irradiance, Temperature and Wind Speed Sensor

Last update

SUNMETER PRO WIND is a high performance digital solarimeter based on Sunmeter PRO that also gives wind readings thanks to a direct connection to a pulse output anemometer via RS485 Modbus.

A 3-in-1 irradiance, temperature and wind speed sensor

Thanks to its firmware and hardware implementations, SUNMETER PRO WIND measures the irradiance, temperature and wind speed through a direct connection to a PT100 and a pulse anemometer.

The anemometer can be connected thanks to a 3-way IP67 connector. With a single device it’s possible to reduce wiring on site and ensure the measurement of temperature and wind speed, reading them in sequence through an RS485 Modbus.

Note: the terms solarimeter, irradiance sensor, pyranometer and calibrated cell are interchangeable. On this site we will use irradiance sensor. To learn more click here.
