Windsensor outside measurements

Hi all,

I'm implementing a modern device wind sensor (rev c). And now that the test fase is over am trying the next leap,...actual wind.
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to use the windsensor in an outside environment, and if so...How?

How to shield the electronics for different weather types, off course the most harmful one,...rain.

best regards,
LVX

LVX,

The sensor is designed to have the "prongs" cut off. Use tinsnips and carefully cut in between the two sets of three pin headers. Put the electronics in someplace dry and mount the prongs in the weather. Use silicon or some other sealant to cover the soldered leads and the cracks around the cable.

Hope that helps,

Paul
