RM Young Marine Wind Monitor (model 05106) Sensor

Important Info

This solution consists of Wind Monitor model 05106, purchased separately from R.M. Young, and an S-WCC-M003 adapter purchased from Onset.


The Wind Monitor is an accurate and reliable wind sensor specifically designed for the rigors of the marine environment, that is compatible with Onset's line of research-grade weather stations, including the RX3000, U30-NRC, H21, and H22 systems. When paired with the S-WCC-M003 wind sensor adapter, it offers plug-and-play performance with Onset stations, eliminating the need for programming or complex wiring.

The wind speed sensor is a four blade helicoid propeller. Unique transducer produces a pulse signal without electrical contacts or slip rings. The wind direction sensor is a durable molded vane. Vane angle is sensed by a precision potentiometer housed in a sealed chamber. All materials are carefully selected for corrosion resistance and maximum durability in the harsh marine environment. Extremely durable ceramic bearings are used throughout. Stainless steel bearings are used throughout. Special waterproof lubricant further enhances reliability. The instrument mounts on standard 1 inch pipe.
