Q-EX Wind Direction Indicator

The Q-EX Wind Direction Indicator is the offshore solution for displaying wind direction. The operation of the wind cone is entirely dependent on the direction and relative velocity of the surface wind. Movement of the wind through the open throat of the cage and into the sock causes the tail to inflate. The tail of the inflated sock indicates true wind direction for velocities as low as three knots through a 360° circle about the vertical shaft.
