Inspeed E-VANE2 Electronic Wind Direction Sensor

E-Vane direction sensor


Latest technology in wind sensing: a balanced wind direction vane with a near-zero friction bearing and a high accuracy magnetic angle sensor to provide precision wind direction. Unique locking feature allows you to easily set "North" regardless of mounting orientation.


(as provided by Manufacturer: www.inspeed.com)

 Sensor Type

Balanced wind vane connected to an active, non-contact, zero friction Hall Effect sensor Non-contact, zero friction Hall Effect sensor. Magnet hovers over the sensor to provide the output

NOTE: The e-Vane2 does not include any electronics or display. It is fully compatible with the Inspeed WINDWORKS electronics platform. The design and output of the E-Vane2 are different than the original e-Vane. The e-Vane2 (November 2013) was conceived to have a common body with the new anemometer (easier to make, less parts) and offer a lower cost/price.

 Sensor Range

Full 360 degrees , zero deadband
