C5CA Anemometer


C5CA series Compact High Speed Wind anemometer

The Richards C5CA-1264-1-SP Compact Ultra Light High Speed Industrial Anemometer is the perfect sensor for meteorological installations and storm chasing vehicles. The C5CA Anemometer has all of the great features as the C5C anemometer like the stainless steel wind cups but has a blue anodized aluminum body for an even lighter wind sensor. The C5CA also uses the same rotor assembly and stainless steel bearings as the C5 and C5C anemometers. The C5CA Series Compact Anemometer is available with a reed switch pulse output only, Two of the great features of the C5CA is that the reed switch assembly can be removed in the field without disassembling the anemometer and the anemometer bearings can be replaced without disconnecting the sensor or wires.
