Renke RS-FSJT-N01 Wind speed anemometer

Device Type: sensor
Electrical Standard: global

General Notes

The Renke RS-FSJT-N01 Wind speed anemometer is sold in four versions:

  • RS485 digital ModBUS output
  • 0-5V analog voltage output
  • 0-10V analog voltage output
  • 4-20mA analog current output

RS-FSJT-N01 Wind speed anemometer


  • Measurement range: 0~30m/s, resolution 0.1m/s, accuracy ± 0.3m/s
  • Starting wind speed: 0.5m/s
  • DC power supply: 10~30V DC

Configuration presented here is for the RS485 digital ModBUS version.


The cable coming out through the bottom of the unit has the folling pinout:

  • Brown: positive power supply
  • Black: negative power supply and GND
  • Green: RS485-A
  • Blue: RS485-B

ModBUS Parameters

Wire up a an RS485 transceiver to an ESP32 to interface with the device using ESPHome's Modbus Component.

Connection parameters:

  • Baud Rate: 4800 (default), supports 2400 and 9600
  • Data bit length: 8
  • Parity check: None
  • Stop bit: 1
  • Device address: 1
  • Register address for speed value: 0
  • Register data type: U_WORD, multiplied by 10

Basic Configuration

Slow winds blow in small bursts, so it's recommended to average measurements to have a better overview of the wind condition. That's why we're reading out the measurement every second, and apply a filter to the sensor, taking the maximum blow speed of 5 measurements, averaging them every minute:

rx_pin: GPIOXX
tx_pin: GPIOXX
baud_rate: 4800
id: modbus1
- id: wind_speed_meter
address: 1
modbus_id: modbus1
setup_priority: -10
command_throttle: 200ms
update_interval: 1s
- platform: modbus_controller
modbus_controller_id: wind_speed_meter
name: "Wind speed"
device_class: wind_speed
register_type: read
address: 0
unit_of_measurement: "m/s"
value_type: U_WORD
accuracy_decimals: 1
- multiply: 0.1
- max:
window_size: 5
send_every: 5
- exponential_moving_average:
alpha: 0.1
send_every: 12

Note that the sensor is by default set to ModBUS address 1, so out of the box it's not possible to connect it together with another one (like a RS-FXJT-N01 wind direction sensor) to the same ESP UART.

The manufacturer offers a helper application for Windows, called 485 Parameter Configuration Tool. The sensor can be connected to the PC with a USB-to-RS485 adapter, and the configuration tool makes it easily possible to change the modbus address to something else, eg. 2 (just type it in the Addr box and press Setup button).

After that it becomes possible to simply connect the sensors in parrallel on the same cable, to a single RS485-TTL transceiver attached to a single UART on the ESP (you need to change the address value in the corresponding modbus_controller entry in the config).
