NRG Class 1 Anemometer
The NRG Class 1 anemometer is the ideal, low-cost solution for wind resource assessment projects that require an anemometer with class 1A compliance.
The NRG Class 1 Anemometer is a ball-bearing version of our industry-leading NRG 40C Anemometer. That is, it relies upon the same compact external form factor for easy transport and installation. Inside, the patented dual shaft design of the NRG Class 1 protects the bearings from debris and the common impact loads experienced in harsh climates, while the bearings themselves deliver the low friction necessary to achieve certified class 1 performance.
NRG was the first company to obtain endorsement in the classification of an anemometer from Troels Pedersen of the DTU Wind Energy Department. A calibration certificate comes with each sensor, verifying its traceability to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (U.S.A.): Download Calibration Report.

- Converting Anemometer Calibration Report Values from m/s to mph
- Does NRG offer anemometers calibrated under the MEASNET anemometer calibration procedure?
- Does the Class 1 Anemometer have the same transfer function as the 40C Anemometer?
- Does the Class 1 Anemometer require power?
- How many years of service can I expect from the Class 1 Anemometer?
- I hear the term "Class 1," but I am not exactly sure what this classification means. What impact does this classification have on the data?
- Is the Class 1 Anemometer available with MEASNET calibration?
- What are the main differences between the Class 1 Anemometer and the 40C Anemometer?
- What is the class of the NRG Class 1 Anemometer?
- Wind speed-readings are zero
