Texas Electronics WSC-5 Wind Speed Activated Controller

The Texas Electronics, Inc. WSC-5 Wind Speed Activated Control System is designed for switching on and/or off, various types of equipment based on specified wind speed parameters. Designed to withstand harsh environments the WSC-5 is a truly commercial/research-grade instrument that is ideally suited for safety applications such as cranes and other types of high reach and load bearing equipment where strong winds can pose a danger.

The relays are energized at wind speeds exceeding the set points, but automatically de-energized when wind speed falls below the set points. In the Latching mode, the relays energizes when the wind speed set points are exceeded and remain energized until manually reset.
