This sensor consists of a light wind vane pivoted on top of a housing. Inside the housing a compass is magnetically coupled to the vane.

The wind direction sensor can be mounted directly on the Sensor Arm of the Automatic Weather Station 2700 or Road Weather station 4030. It may also be mounted on different types of sensor brackets from Aanderaa Instruments and on a 25mm O.D. vertical aluminum tube. When installed on brackets or tubes, the sensor must then be connected to the Sensor Scanning or Display Unit by a separate cable.
