Sensor Applications

 

3-Cup Anemometer

 

Aside from use with Maximum wind speed indicators, our 3-cup anemometers can be used with any device that will accept a frequency or pulse input. Common 3-cup anemometer applications include:

-  Environmental monitoring
-  Crane safety - wind load
-  Regulating water flow based on wind speed
-  Any controller that relies on a wind speed reading

Wind Distributor & Vane

 

Used with Maximum wind direction indicators, as well as applications where high resolution (greater than 22.5º) wind direction is not a requirement. Wind distributor & vanes are used in:

-  Environmental monitoring
-  Fountain control
-  Greenhouse window control
-  Sporting events - ballooning, parachuting, track & field

Temperature Sensor

 

The same sensors that are used by Maximum's Mini-Max, CriterionMystic and Summit temperature indicators to measure air and water temperature, are also applicable for the following uses:

-  Environmental monitoring
-  Pools, spas and boats
-  Any device that can accept a thermistor input

Accurate to +/- 0.5ºC (1ºF) from -40ºC to 50ºC

Rainfall Collector

 

Used with Maximum's Rainwatch rainfall indicator, this rainfall collector can be used with most pulse counting rainfall indicators, as well as any devices which can accept a switch closure input. Applications for rain collectors include:

-  Irrigation controllers
-  Environmental monitoring devices
-  Agriculture
