The RVM 96B-1 is a truly portable, easy to use electro – mechanical device for wind measurements.  It is particularly suited for usage in adverse conditions, where other instruments due to their design, weight or dimensions, would be unsuitable.

The system for measuring wind speed is optoelectronic, with a 3-cup Robinson’s cross and a digital liquid crystal display. Wind speed is sampled in 1-second intervals. The Instrument also calculates 1-minute average and max speed and shows those values on display. Four AA-type (R6) batteries located in the handle power the electronics. An automatic power-off circuit switches the instrument off, if the cup assembly is stationary for more than 4 minutes. As an option, wind speed data can be transmitted to an external device in 1-second intervals via a RS-232 serial port (only on the RVM 96B-1/T).

The RVM 96B-1 can be set to measure wind speed in m/s, km/h, knots, or mph. The speed unit is user selectable.

A mechanical system with a vane and circular scale is used for measuring the direction of the wind. A built-in electronic compass enables proper orientation of the device.

The handle lid has standard ¼” threaded hole to enable the attachment of the device to a standard photographic tripod.
