Compatible with all HOBO weather station loggers, HOBOware, and HOBOlink. This sensor offers the same ease of use as existing Onset Smart Sensors, providing cost-effective HOBO weather stations for projects on a tight budget.
Features a plug-in modular connector for easy installation, and all configuration parameters are stored in the sensor and automatically communicated to the logger, eliminating the need for programming or extensive setup.
- Designed to meet World Meteorological Organization (WMO) guidelines
Also available in a wireless model for use with the HOBOnet Field Monitoring System.

What measurements does this sensor support?
The S-WCF-M003 sensor supports the following measurement: Wind
|Specification||Wind Speed/Gust||Wind Direction|
|Measurement Range||0 to 76 m/sec (0 to 170 mph)||0 to 355 degrees|
|Accuracy||±1.1 m/sec (±2 mph) or ±5% of reading, whichever is greater||±7 degrees|
|Resolution||0.5 m/sec (1.1 mph)||1 degree (0 to 355 degrees)|
|Starting Threshold||≤1 m/sec (2.2 mph)||1 m/sec (2.2 mph)|
|Measurement Definition||Cup revolutions are accumulated every three seconds for the duration of the logging interval. Wind speed: Average speed for the entire logging interval. Gust speed: The highest three-second wind recorded during the logging interval||Unit vector averaging is used; vector components for each wind measurement are calculated every three seconds for the duration of the logging interval|
|Operating Temperature Range||-40°C to 65°C (-40°F to 149°F)||-40°C to 65°C (-40°F to 149°F)|
|Housing||Polycarbonate wind cups||UV-resistant ABS wind vane and black-anodized aluminum anemometer arm|
