Cable for wind sensors extension

Post by emsiwx »

Hello every1:

I have bought ClimeMet CM2000 recently. Due to a bad location of place I live, I need to extend the cable for the wind sensors.
Do you think it is possible to extend it by another 30 meters?

Thank you for your advice.

what type of connect are used and is there any marking on the cable?

markings on the cable should be like cat5 or cat 6 twisted pair data cables.

the connectors could be rj45 or some thing similar most rj45 with cat 6 can be extended search for extending cables there are quiet a few posts about this

The instruments look like FineOffset. If so the wind sensor can be extended with 4 wire phone line and the appropriate 4 wire coupler. Mine is done this way and works fine. Be sure to thoroughly seal the coupler connection from moisture. Good luck!

So, I have extended the cable to my Wind sensors to a total length of about 40 meters. Working fine :)

Thank you all for your comments.
