The new PDS-WX-3 Weather Sensor offers ultrasonic true wind speed and direction measurement as well as barometric pressure, air temperature, humidity and wind chill temperature.
The PDS WX-3 is an ultrasonic weather sensor, providing superior accuracy to cup and vane anemometers. The ultrasonic device contains no moving parts removing the need for ongoing maintenance.
Suitable For Remote Weather Stations
The PDS WX-3 has been developed with a 50% reduction in current draw for use in remote locations where solar or battery power is in use. Pacific Data Systems can design and build complete weather stations incorporating the PDS WX-3 Ultrasonic Weather Sensor to meet your project requirements.

Moving Vehicle Applications
The ability to provide true wind speed and direction readings makes it a suitable weather sensor for use in moving vehicle applications (e.g. tractors, emergency service vehicles, yachts). Also included is a 10Hz GPS, solid state compass and three-axis accelerometer for pitch and roll to assist in navigation, particularly for marine vessels.
