An anemometer is a device used for measuring wind speed. As the wind blows it rotates the sensor and internally the rotations are converted to an analog voltage. The voltage will range from 0.4V (0 m/s wind) up to 2.0V (for 32.4m/s wind speed). The sensor is very easy to use; connect the black wire to ground, the brown wire to 7-24VDC and measure the analog voltage on the blue wire. The included cable connects to the anemometer housing with a nice threaded connector allowing it to be disconnected with a few quick twists.
