JGTech Autonnic NMEA 0183 MAST HEAD WIND TRANSDUCER
Wind Sensor provides reliable and accurate information about the speed
and direction of the wind working against a yacht. The unit is built to
last using robust, quality materials and is able to withstand the
harshest marine environments.
Wind Transducers have a tough life, experiencing extreme weather,
constant movement and the occassional seagull, so it is no surprise that
they can often fail. With this in mind, this marine wind sensor
features an ultra tough design with UV and salt resistant plastics,
Igildur™ bearings for exceptional life and corrosion resistance. Data
transmission is via a super-thin cable providing fast update
NMEA0183 ($WIMWV) data for maximum compatibility with legacy instrument
systems and multi-function displays.
If you have an existing wind transducer that has failed or you want
to add wind data to a multi-function display (MFD) then, before
splashing out on an expensive complete wind system from one of the
bigger brands. This unit can be connected
up to your existing displays and not only save yourself significant
money, but also install a transducer that will take whatever mother
nature has to throw at it.
