Somerville, Mass.-based Second Wind, a developer of products for the wind industry, has introduced a new Model C3 anemometer, with material and manufacturing improvements over previous models.

The Model C3 has new materials and a manufacturing process that is RoHS-compliant, involving no toxic metals. While its characteristics are similar to the popular three-cup anemometer Second Wind sold previously, the new model is performance-validated, has tougher plastic and is individually serialized and date-coded.

The uncalibrated Model C3 will be available for $115, and the calibrated C3C version will be priced at $295.
