QUESTION: How long a cable length can MeteoWind sensor have since meteo-tower and meteo-mast required cable lengths differ based on tower heights (i.e. 40m, 50m, 60m, 100m, etc.)
ANSWER: MeteoWind 2 has a IP67 connector, therefore, cable length can be chosen per customer requirement. Whats more, MeteoWind 2 has the highest lightning protection currently available consisting of:
over voltage protection
high-speed over-current protection
high-speed voltage protection
MeteoWind Lightning Protection meets the following international standards for industrial equipment safety:
EMC Emissions according to EN50081-1 / IEC61000-6-1
EMI Transients according to EN50081-1 / IEC61000-6-2
SURGE test 4 kV / 2 kA acc.to EN50082-2 / IEC61000-6-2
ESD 15000 V (15 kV)

The use of 3-stage lightning protection is complemented by the RS-485 digital output which has inherently high resistance to interference and is therefore the most widely used communication interface in tough industrial environments. Together, they are able to ground out any unwanted electrical interference from wired connections.
