KWR-631 Propeller-type Recording
Wind Vane/Anemometer (3-Element)
OVERVIEW
The KWR-631 records both instantaneous and average wind speeds and wind direction, which can be switch-selected for either instantaneous or average. Data is cleanly recorded using cartridge pens, avoiding smearing and smudging common with siphon-type pens. A servo drives the drum, providing the torque needed for reliable operation on boats or in other situations where motion is a factor. A terminal jack on the rear of the recorder unit allows for convenient connection to a wind speed and direction indicator. Meanwhile, the rear of the unit also has terminal jacks for providing a separate analog signal (0-1 V) for each element.
