B&G WS300 Series of High Precision Wind Sensors


B&G WS300 Series of High Precision Wind Sensors

B&G recently announced the launch of the new WS300 wind series, a new range of wireless and wired wind sensors designed for cruising and club racing sailors.

The WS320 is a revolutionary new wireless wind sensor designed for yachts with masts up to 80 feet.

The new sensor is easy to install, lightweight and does not compromise performance compared to a wired unit.

The WS320 offers high performance, improved aerodynamics and accuracy. The smart rechargeable solar power management system ensures data is always available to instruments and autopilots, no matter the weather conditions.

The new WS310 is the wired option and comes with the same improvements in accuracy and aerodynamics but allows for more traditional wired installations.

“We are delighted to launch our new line of wind sensors – both the wireless and wired units offer exceptional performance in terms of accuracy of wind angle and speed, and are also extremely reliable,” said Alan Davis, Product Line Director, B&G. “As the most exposed sensor on a yacht, the wind sensor is critical for instruments and autopilot steering. Reliability of these sensors is key, so the WS310 and WS320 have undergone rigorous validation. We have conducted benchmarking tests against different sensors in more than 500 individual wind tunnel tests and conducted over 200,000 hours of field tests without failure.”

One of the main challenges of wind sensors is installation. The new WS320 wireless sensor is lightweight and . . .
