C5 Anemometer


c5 - High Speed industrial anemometer

The Richards C5 Series Anemometer is the finest, industrial strength 3-cup style anemometer on the market today. The C5 was designed from the ground up by our engineers with quality and durability as their primary goals. No shortcuts were taken and no compromises were made during its construction. Using the highest grade of raw materials and components available and state-of-the-art machining techniques. The Richards C5 has proven to be the highest quality precision anemometer for high wind speed applications you will find. All Richards C5 Series Anemometers come standard with our quick disconnect sensor mounting system. This allows the C5 anemometer to be removed in seconds if required. All C5 anemometer components are made from either corrosion resistant stainless steel or high grade Titanium.The C5 housing, base, and tower, are all CNC machined from solid 316 Stainless Steel bar stock for maximum corrosion resistance, precision performance, and industrial strength. The C5 anemometer utilizes high performance rotor cups, arms, and hardware which are also fabricated from 316 Stainless Steel. In order to have maximum strength and the lowest threshold possible, the rotor hub is CNC machined from solid light weight Titanium and further skeletonized to remove all unnecessary mass. The C5 Anemometers superior performance is produced by a hardened stainless steel shaft, rotating on two of our specially designed double shielded stainless steel ball bearings for maximum durability, performance, and long service life. The C5 Anemometer houses unique electronics which have as standard, dual output construction. This means the C5 can produce an AC sine wave or pulse signal output for maximum versatility in the field. All Richards anemometers have our special green anti-stick coating to help prevent dirt and snow build up on the external working parts of the sensor. Another unique feature of the C5 Anemometer is our unique housing vent system which protects the internal electronics from damage due to moisture, dust, and sea salt spray.
