B&G WS320 Wireless Wind Sensor including Wireless InterfaceModel: 000-14383-001
- Easy installation. No cables in the mast
- No compromise wireless. Higher performance that most wired sensors
- Wind data always available. Low power, extremely efficient design and smart power management.
A high precision wireless wind sensor from B&G, designed for cruising and club racing sailors. The WS320 wireless wind sensor pack offers a high-performance solution, with exceptional data accuracy and improved aerodynamics, which is easy to install.
Designed to provide highly accurate wind data in all conditions, at all points of sail and heel. The WS320 has been benchmarked against multiple different sensors in over 500 individual wind tunnel tests.
Easy to install and light-weight, ideal for smaller boats * - without compromising performance for wireless convenience. The WS320 has the same accuracy (both wind angle and wind speed) as the wired version, while outputting wind at a supper smooth 5 times every second.
As the most exposed sensor on a yacht, the wind sensor - critical for instruments and autopilot steering — must meet an exceptionally high standard. In addition to B&G’s extreme testing program, the WS320 sensors have been subject to combined field tests of over 200,000 hours.
* Note: for mast heights up to 25m (80'), subject to individual installation and local variables.Specifications
