FT742 Surface Mount Wind Sensor

The FT742 Surface Mount wind sensor is designed for OEM integration. It has an electronic compass and a thermostatic heater. The sensor has been integrated into UAVs, drones, military vehicles, autonomous robots, handheld weather stations, drifter buoys, vehicle-mounted and ship-based meteorological systems. The sensor can be installed to ensure alignment with a standard reference, typically Magnetic North, or the integrated compass can calculate this automatically. Small, low power and extremely rugged, the FT742-SM is extensively tested and certified for vibration and shock resistance, and RF immunity.

Key Features:

  • Measures wind speed, direction and temperature
