Wind velocity has a direct impact on countless recreational and professional activities, but one element is fairly common – if you need to know wind velocity, you need the most accurate reading you can get. The Davis Turbo Meter uses the operating principle that a freely turning turbine will rotate at a speed directly proportional to the wind speed. Other turbine anemometers suffer from drag caused by the sensor, but the Turbo Meter uses an infrared light beam which cannot create drag.

Pocket Sized Convenience with Unmatched Versatility.

The turbine sits on sapphire jeweled bearings to spin nearly friction free. The signal is processed by a Large Scale Integrated (LSI) circuit for improved accuracy in a compact package. A simple to operate switch allows readings on four different scales - miles per hour, feet per minute, meters per second and knots. The large, three digit display is easy to read under indoor or outdoor lighting conditions.

The compact size and sensitivity to low velocity breezes make the Turbo Meter the ideal choice for HVAC and environmental professionals. Shooters will appreciate the ability to sense wind speed changes in gusty conditions. Sailors can take advantage of the easy to read display to judge changing conditions.
