B&G wind sen­sors

Yachting World - - Front Page -

B&G’S new WS320 wire­less wind sen­sor is aimed at cruis­ing and club rac­ing sailors and promises to sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce the time needed to in­stall the mast­head unit.

Long-term reli­a­bil­ity of mast­head wind sen­sors has his­tor­i­cally been poor, but B&G says it has con­ducted 200,000 hours of field-test­ing with­out fail­ure. The wire­less sen­sor trans­mits data up to a dis­tance of 25m at the same rate as Garmin’s WS310 wired model. It is paired with a Blue­tooth device to in­ter­face with NMEA 2000 sys­tems and costs around £100 more than the wired ver­sion.

Price: £670. www.bandg.com
