Modular Anemometer for WinDIY_2 (and other projects)

A project log for WinDIY_2 - Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine

A new version of the mostly 3D printed windturbine incl. a new version of a 3D printed generator.

In the last few days I have been working on the first drafts for the anemometer for WinDIY_2. You can find the first information about this in the following project log:

Since I've always wanted to build an anemometer anyway to be able to collect wind data for my weather station, I built the sensor modular so that it can also be used in other situations (e.g. a weather station).

I tried to make the wind sensor as compact as possible. The sensor electronics will be built into the 27mm thick shaft. Later I want to build an adapter board so that the wind data can then also be read via RS485 or USB. :)
