pivot arm anemometer

An instrument for measuring the wind speed by determining the force (usually by measurement of mechanical deflection) on a suspended plate exposed to the airstream.

In sensitive devices for rapid response turbulence measurements, a feedback system may be used to generate an appropriate restoring force to maintain the plate at its equilibrium position.
