Thanks to its excellent energy-saving properties, the alkaline battery-powered KPC-63 can be used to reliably record wind speed and direction data over an extended time period even where there is no commercial-level power source.  The measured data is recorded to internal flash memory, from where it is easily collected via mobile or landline telephone or satellite links.  Further, because data is so easily collected, analyzing data and generating daily, monthly, or yearly reports and graphs is easier than ever before.  Equipped to reliably operate at temperatures between -20°C and 40°C, the KPC-63 is ideal for a variety of commercial, industrial, and research uses.
