Wild solar thought

Postby wd40 » Tue Jan 04, 2011 12:47 pm

I was wondering if one had an old fine offset that one wasn't using, if the anemometer, a cheap solar panel and small motor make a solar sensor.

The solar panel drives a motor that turns the clipped anemometer which the output could be figured into power.

With more outside parts, the rain gauge input could do the same thing I would guess.
