Clipper Wireless Wind
The Clipper wireless wind is supplied with a wireless masthead transmitter, a base unit and a Clipper Wind display unit. The wireless masthead transmitter is powered by an internal battery which is charged from ambient light using a small solar panel. A few dull days will not affect performance. When fully charged, it is capable of two thousand hours of full operation in total darkness. The masthead transmitter sends data wirelessly to the base unit, which is powered by the vessel’s 12 Volt supply, the base unit receives wind speed and direction data from the masthead transmitter and sends it to the Clipper Wind display or any other compatible NMEA display unit.
The Clipper Wind display is in the industry standard 110mm square case. Exceptionally large and clear display with 60 segments for full 360 degree direction indication.
- Wireless wind speed and direction data to any compatible NMEA display
- Easy installation with mast in place – no wires to run down
- Simple masthead alignment through base unit
- Light mast unit weight – 190 grams
MOBi MOB Indicator
The Nasa MOBi is a state of the art, fail-safe transponder man overboard system. It consists of a base unit and up to eight active transponders for crew or valuable equipment. In operation the base station sequentially interrogates each transponder which then broadcasts its presence. In the event of a crew member falling overboard the drop in signal level is detected by the base unit which sounds a high intensity audible alarm. To aid identification of the missing crew member the base station continually displays the names of all the crew currently logged on, the signal levels of their transponder fob and their current status. Three AAA cells power each transponder for several weeks of continuous use. Should the base station be turned off the transponders will go to sleep with a life of several years. So if you are sailing with Tom, Dick and Harry don’t forget to take MOBi with you!
A large display, mast mounted, multifunction repeater is now being produced at our factory. The weatherproof repeater with its 60mm high numerals, is supplied complete with cables, data-box with six NMEA-0183 inputs ( With up to six sentences per input.), wireless remote control, stainless steel mounting brackets and weather cover. There are nine levels of red back lighting which permit easy night viewing of red characters on a black background. The overall case size is 211mm wide x 140mm high.
Currently programmed in are the screens shown below though we do welcome customer feedback as we will add to this list by popular demand.
Compact battery monitor, just 124 x 62mm x 23mm!
Based on the highly successful BM-1 marine battery monitor, the BM-1 Compact is especially designed for applications where space is at a premium.
Caravans, mobile homes, RV’s, small boats and renewable power installations can all benefit from the BM-1 Compact. It is able to monitor the performance of any 12 Volt lead acid battery system with a capacity up to 600 AmpHours. The BM-1 Compact is supplied with a precision 100 Amp shunt and prefabricated cables to enable simple DIY installation.
The unit continually monitors the voltage, the current (charge or discharge) and calculates the state of charge together with the time remaining to charge or discharge the battery.
This information can lead to a more efficient use of the battery enhancing its life and reducing the risk of failure.
Operation is very simple. One screen displays the voltage, current (charge or discharge) and a bar graph showing the remaining capacity. A flashing alarm is also included to warn if the capacity is getting too low. A second screen shows the remaining time available at the current charge/discharge rate together with the remaining capacity in both analog and digital format.
The BM-1 Compact consumes a miserly 1.5mA!
BM-1 Compact is used in various vehicles by the Ministry of Defence.
