WindSense

£450.00

“Wireless Wind System with wired mast head unit and wireless output to iOS and Android Apps”

KEY FEATURES

The wireless wind sensor WindSense features an ultra tough Wind Transducer with Igildur™ bearings for exceptional life and corrosion resistance. Data transmission is via a super-thin 20m digital cable. consequently, providing fast update NMEA0183 ($MWV) data to the below deck wireless interface.

Wind data is then wirelessly streamed to any compatible App or Navigation software package. This enables display of Apparent, True*, Close Haul or Running data on an iOS, Android, Mac or Windows device. Up to 7 mobile devices can receive the same data, so crew and family members can also see exactly what the wind is doing.

The Wireless interface box has a configurable NMEA0183 input/output (4800/38400 baud). Therefore, GPS, Instrument or AIS data can be multiplexed (combined) with the WindSense data and streamed to the mobile devices/apps.

*True Wind readings require boat speed (SOG or STW) data to be available.

Wind sense provides a low cost replacement or addition to any marine electronics system. It offers significantly enhanced accuracy, reliability and functionality with easy interfacing enabling a tablet to become a complete instrument display with other connected sensors. There are many vessels who require wind data too but only equipped with a speed and depth system . Likewise, many older wind systems require replacement but customers do not want the substantial cost of a totally new instrument package. Depending upon the app utilised, true wind information, VMG and other sailing performance parameters like polars may also be displayed.
