MAC3 Wind Speed Alarm & Controller
Maximum’s MAC3 Wind Speed Alarm & Controller is used to measure and display wind speed from 0 to 200 MPH, km/h, m/s or Knots. MAC3 allows the user to set two different wind speed readings at which they would like to be notified, both visually and audibly, when the wind meets either set-point. This instrument also contains two internal SPDT relays, which allow the operator to open or close the circuit leading to an external appliance, based on the selected wind speeds. A built in latching switch helps protect attached equipment from cycling on/off repeatedly as set points are met.
Multi-function, dual set-point wind speed alarm with
optional 2 x 5-amp SPDT relays, password protection
and multi-sensor option.
Dimensions: 7.39"H x 5.08"W x 2.26"D
Weight: 1.58 lbs.
MAC3 is used in various commercial applications including cranes (mobile, gantry and stationary), amusement parks, fountain controls, entertainment (special effects), outdoor signage, home automation and agricultural monitoring.
The MAC3 Wind Speed Alarm & Controller utilizes a micro-processor circuits, which allows for numerous features such as recording of high gust, average wind speed, password protection, multi-sensor operation, etc... All circuitry is housed in an IP65 rated polycarbonate case. The #400 anemometer used to capture wind speed has been used by Maximum in commercial applications for more than 30 years, and has proven to be both reliable and durable over that period. A shielded cable is used between the sensor and the indicator as it offers better surge and interference suppression compared to non-shielded cable.
All MAC3 instruments are pre-wired during production and tested for accuracy & effectiveness before being packaged for shipping. We recommend a bench-test of the pre-wired instrument prior to installation to ensure that all is in working order. Proper installation of this instrument is the only way it will operate. If not installed properly, it will not function at all. This ensures that only properly installed instruments are being used. Installation is basic, including utilization of the internal relays.
Operation requires the user to set the speeds at which he/she would like to be notified. When the wind speed meets or exceeds the speed settings, a visual and audible signal will notify the operator that wind speeds have met the set-point on the instrument. A Password Lock feature prevents the speed settings from being inadvertently adjusted.
Like all Maximum commercial instruments, our MAC3 carries a 5-Year Warranty.
