Reed switches and Reed sensors in Wind Vanes

Reed switches in wind vanes
Eight reed switches are mounted radially at 22.5 degree angles making compass points on a circular PCB and the wind vane contains one long magnet which is the diameter of the PCB. The wind vane is mounted at the centre of the circular PCB. As the wind direction changes the vane actuates the corresponding reed switches and the wind direction is known. Suitable products: SMD formed MC-1425 and IL-2022 reed switches, and R3 SMD reed sensors.
