1 inch diameter impeller with precision axle and sapphire bearings.  Off-axis accuracy -1% @ 5º off-axis; -2% @ 10º; -3% @ 15º.  Calibration drift < 1% after 100 hours use at 16 MPH / 7 m/s.  Sustained operation above 60 MPH / 27 m/s will wear impeller rapidly and may cause destruction of impeller.  Replacement impeller (NK PN-0801) may be field-installed without tools (US Patent 5,783,753).

Calculated from the primary measurements of wind speed and temperature.  Utilizes the NWS Wind Chill Temperature (WCT) Index, revised 2001, with wind speed adjusted by a factor of 1.5 to yield equivalent results to wind speed measured at 10 m above ground.  (Specification temperature limits established by WCT Tables.)

Max/Avg Wind Speed

One-button clear and restart of Max Wind Gust and Average Wind measurement.

Pressure Trend

Continuously updating three-hour barometric pressure trend indicator: rising rapidly, rising, steady, falling, falling rapidly.

Display

Reflective 4 digit LCD.  Digit height 0.36 in / 9 mm.

Display Update

Display Backlight

Aviation green electroluminescent backlight.

Clock / Calendar

Real-time hours:minutes clock.

Operational Temperature Range
(LCD and Batteries)

The operational temperature range of the liquid crystal display and batteries is 14° F to 131° F / -10 °C to 55 °C. Beyond the limits of the operational temperature range, the unit must be maintained within range and exposed for minimum time necessary to take reading.
