05305-LC Wind Monitor AQ for CS110 or MetData1
Services Available
Calibration No


The 05305 is a high-performance wind-speed and wind-direction sensor designed specifically for air-quality measurements. It provides a lower starting threshold, faster response, and higher accuracy than the other wind monitors. However, to achieve the superior performance, the 05305 is less ruggedly constructed.

The 05305 is a lightweight instrument that measures wind speed and wind direction. Manufactured by R. M. Young, the wind monitor is cabled for use with Campbell Scientific data loggers. The wind monitor's design emphasizes simplicity and lightweight construction. It is made out of rigid, UV-stabilized thermoplastic, with stainless-steel and anodized-aluminum fittings. The thermoplastic material resists corrosion from sea-air environments and atmospheric pollutants. The wind monitor uses stainless-steel, precision-grade ball bearings for the propeller shaft and vertical shaft bearings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Number of FAQs related to 05305-LC: 2

  1. The information included on a calibration sheet differs with each sensor. For some sensors, the sheet contains coefficients necessary to program a data logger. For other sensors, the calibration sheet is a pass/fail report.

  2. This depends on the information contained in the calibration sheet:

    • If the calibration sheet contains coefficient information, Campbell Scientific keeps a copy, and a replacement copy can be requested.
    • If the calibration sheet does not contain coefficients, Campbell Scientific does not keep a copy. It may be possible to contact the original manufacturer for a replacement copy.
