Spinning cup anemometers are measure wind speeds and are part of every weather station and airport. This is a proven design that has not changed over the years, but is now improved to give out more information when used with magnets and reed sensors by adding a magnet to each of the cups and a reed sensor under the stem. As the wind blows, the Reed Sensor counts the number of pulses which can then be translated to wind speed. Suitable products: MS-216 and MS-214 cylindrical sensors, and MS-225 threaded sensors. The output generated by the Proximity Sensor can be integrated into intelligent hubs that can record wind speed over a period or send out push notifications to mobile devices when the wind speed exceeds a set limit.
