A high performance instrument system that shows almost instantaneous changes of wind speed and direction.
In demanding conditions, where high performance is essential, the Clipper Tactical wind system is the ideal choice. With ten updates every second it responds very quickly to the changes in wind speed and direction, which occur during tricky manoeuvres. The sensor is supplied complete with a mast mounting kit, 20 metres of light weight cable and all necessary electrical connectors to complete the installation. The output data is in the NMEA 0183 format and can be used to drive any compatible display that utilises the MWV sentence.
The Clipper Wind system shares the same 110mm square case as its sister instruments in the Clipper range. the display is exceptionally large and clear, with 60 segments for full 360 degree direction indication. Windspeed is shown in knots, M.P.H. or Metres/second. The pointer style is selectable, from the single segment shown above, to multi segments for greater clarity or a ‘windex’ style indicator. The new masthead unit has NMEA 0183 output sentence MWV and supplied with 20 metres of cable.
Clipper Wind system is supplied complete with Display unit, masthead unit with cable and mounting blocks.
The BM-1 battery monitor is designed to monitor performance of 12 volt lead acid battery systems, including AGM and GEL types with capacities of up to 600 Amp hours. It is supplied complete with a precision 100 AMP shunt and a prefabricated cable assembly to enable simple DIY installation. The unit continuously monitors voltage, current (charge or discharge), number of amp/hours (charge or discharge), the batteries state of charge and the time to charge or discharge. It also monitors the voltage of the engine start battery. This information leads to more efficient use of the battery, which can enhance battery life and reduce the risk of failure.
The Clipper EASY LOG shows speed, trip and total distance on a high visibility liquid crystal display. It utilises the RMC sentence from any GPS or plotter with an NMEA 0183 output. Alternatively the EASY LOG can repeat, using sentences VHW and VLW from an existing NMEA log.
The best selling combined Speed/Distance Log and Echo Sounder in standard 110mm square size. Suitable for open cockpit mounting.
The Clipper Duet is supplied complete with the solid state electromagnetic speed transducer (for installation on most types of GRP hulls) and in hull depth transducer. Supplied with the EML-3 electromagnetic transducer, the log measures the boat speed through the water with no moving parts. Robust and accurate, the sensor generates an alternating magnetic field below the boat and measures the resulting electric field produced by the boat moving through the water. With excellent linearity and a resolution of 0.1 Knot, over the range 0.2 to 40 Knots, the control box converts the sensor signal to a pulse output to connect to the Clipper Duet display.
