GAOTek Anemometer with Wind-chill Indication (Beaufort Scale) is ideal for measuring wind chill and wind-speed and it displays temperature, air velocity and relative humidity on a small LCD screen. The dynamic LCD display allows you to easily toggle between different views and units of measure that include feet per minute, knots, kilometers per hour, miles per hour etc. Beaufort scale, low battery warning, wind-chill indication, calibration function and auto power off (with override function) are some of its important features. This portable and durable handheld device is often used by model plane pilots, hiking enthusiasts and hunters.

- Displayed when the Auto-Power Off Function is overridden.
This warning will display when the battery is low on power.
This warning displays to indicate wind chill when the temperature is below °C
- Relative Humidity Display (RH)
- Turning on and off your Meter
A. Press button to turn on your meter. After minutes without any operation the meter will power off.
B. To override the Auto Power Off, hold down the “Set button” then press the button to turn on.
- Selecting Air Velocity & Temperature Units of Measure
A. Quick short presses of the “Unit Button” will select the wind speed units of measure view (m/s, ft/min, knots, km/h, mph).
B. An extended press of the “Unit Button” will select the temperature units view °C /°F.
- Selecting Type of Reading (Maximum, Minimum, Average, Hold, Normal)
A. A short press of the “Set Button” will select MAX/MIN/AVG reading. When none are displayed on the LCD, you are viewing the current normal reading.
B. An extended press of the “Set Button” will hold the reading.
A. The backlight will turn off after 10 seconds without use. To override hold down the “Units Button” then press Button. The backlight will then illuminate constantly.
- Relative Humidity (RH)
Relative humidity is the amount of moisture in the air compared to what the air can hold at that temperature. When the air can’t hold all the moisture, then it condenses as dew. RH is affected by wind speed, i.e. the more powerful the wind the less moisture there will be in the air.
- Calibration Mode
In the event where calibration is required, follow these steps:
Step 1: Turn on the meter, then press “Set Button” and “Units Button” at the same time to enter the calibration.
Step 2: Press “Units Button” to choose the
Mode 1-wind speed;
Mode 3-humidity; then press “Set Button”
Step 3: Press “Units Button” to choose the jumping number, press “Set Button” to adjust the reading.
Step 4: Press the “Power Button” to store the setting.
If the meter does not power on as usual or the low battery icon appears on the LCD, replace with a new CR2032 Lithium Battery. To do this, turn the battery compartment cover in a counterclockwise direction to remove it.
Remove the old battery and insert a new battery face up, with the bottom side in contact with the two pins.
Dispose of the battery in an environmentally safe and sound manner at a recycling point.
This meter is accurate at low and mid-range air speeds. Consistent use at very high speeds, i.e. from the window of a fast moving car will damage the impeller’s bearing and reduce accuracy.
This meter is not a personal safety device.
