A new range of high precision B&G wind sensors, designed for cruising and club racing sailors. An evolution of B&G’s previous sensors, developed through hours of iterative testing to provide the best solution for sailing wind sensors. The WS300 series meets the following design objectives:
High Performance Designed to provide highly accurate wind data in all conditions at all points of sail and heel. WS300 has been benchmarked against multiple different sensors in over 500 individual wind tunnel tests.
- Angle accuracy < 1 degree *
- Speed accuracy <0.2kt or 5% *
No Compromise Wireless Wireless version – for ease of installation and lower weight on smaller boats – with the same performance as the wired sensor. WS320 has the same accuracy (wind angle and speed) as the wired version, while outputting wind at a super smooth 5 times per second.
Reliability 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 standard testing WS310 and WS320 sensors have been subject to combined field tests of over 200,000 hours.
Key Selling Points
The WS320 wind sensor is designed to be wireless, for ease of installation and low weight, but with no compromise in performance vs. a wired unit.
- Easy installation. No cables in the mast
- No compromise wireless. Higher performance than most wired sensors
- Wind data always available. Low power, extremely efficient design and smart power management
