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 Clipper GPS repeater has quickly established itself as the market leader in cockpit GPS repeaters. Typical of the Clipper range it boasts large clear digits and simple operation. Installation coundn’t be simpler with just a single wing nut to fasten the unit into the panel and two wires to connect to the GPS.
The new Clipper electromagnetic speed 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. It is designed for installation into most types of GRP hulls.
With excellent linearity and a resolution of 0.1 Knot, over the range 0.2 to 40 Knots, the log sensor sends signals to a control box which then converts the sensor signal to boat speed, trip and total distance. This data is transmitted in NMEA 0183 format to a new Clipper EM Log display unit.
