Wind Speed & Direction HOBOnet Sensor

The HOBOnet Wireless Wind Speed and Direction Sensor records wind speed, wind gust, and wind direction. HOBOnet Wireless Sensors communicate data directly to the RX3000 weather station or pass data through other wireless sensors back to the central station. They are preconfigured and ready to deploy, and data is accessed through HOBOlink, Onset’s innovative cloud-based software platform.
