3168KT - EPE Ultrasonic Wind Speed Meter Kit

Ability Level 3: IntermediateProduct Format : Self-Assembly Electronic Kit ( Soldering Required)
Ability Level 3 : Intermediate

This solid-state design wind speed meter (anemometer) uses ultrasonic techniques and has no moving parts and does not need calibrating. It is intended for sports-type activities, such as track events, sailing, hang-gliding, kites and model aircraft flying, to name but a few. It can even be used to monitor conditions in your garden.

The probe is pointed in the direction from which the wind is blowing and the speed is displayed on an LCD display.

It is based on the project published in Everyday Practical Electronics. We have made a few minor design changes (see documentation for details).
