Description of Requirement: The Montana Snow Survey Program requires the BRAND-NAMED Item: R.M. Young Heavy-Duty Alpine Wind Monitors/Anemometers with 8-meter cable pigtails (Part Number: 05108-45-8M). � SNOTEL sites are designed to operate unattended and without maintenance for a year or more to collect data on air temperature with daily maximums, minimums, and averages.� These wind monitors will measure the wind speed and direction for mountainous environments at Snow Telemetry (SNOTEL) sites located in Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota.� The RM Young Heavy-Duty Alpine Wind Monitors are conducive to the harsh weather conditions at SNOTEL sites in the region and specifically designed to support locations which record high winds and abrupt wind directional changes.� The color and coatings on the units prevent the formation of ice and rime and enhances the ability to shed/melt ice curing the winter months.� The wind monitor features an oversized propeller shaft and locking nut which improves the functionality and life of the unit in high winds.� Because the oversized bearings are made of a ceramic material instead of stainless steel, corrosion is less likely and supports the expectation for a longer life cycle. The 8-meter-long cable pigtail for the R.M. Young Alpine anemometer (05108-45-8M) is the minimum specification for mounting sensors to the tops of meteorological towers at SNOTEL sites.� While there are other models on the market, use of a different supplier/brand could cause inconsistencies among results making it difficult to compare data.� These units are part of the SNOTEL standard configuration of sensors using the wiring scheme provided by RM Young. ��Any other sensor would not allow for easy swapping for repair or calibration during the annual maintenance visits at SNOTEL sites.
