C5C Anemometer


C5C Series Compact High Speed anemometer

The Richards C5C-1263-1-SP Compact High Speed Industrial Anemometer is the perfect sensor for wind resource analysis projects and wind warning alarm systems on large buildings and container cranes. The C5C Anemometer has all of the great features and all stainless steel and titanium construction as the larger C5 anemometer but in a light compact profile for ease of installation. The C5C weight is about 1/4 that of the C5 anemometer. The C5C also uses the same rotor assembly and stainless steel bearings as the larger C5 anemometer. The C5C Series Compact Anemometer is available with a reed switch pulse output or for low power consumption, the C5C Series Anemometer is also available with a low level AC frequency output (C5C-1263-1-AC). One of the great features of the C5C is that the reed switch assembly can be removed in the field without disassembling the anemometer.
