The Clipper wireless wind is supplied with a wireless masthead transmitter, a base unit and a Clipper True 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 display.
The Clipper True Wind display is in the industry standard 110mm square case. Exceptionally large and clear display with 60 segments for full 360 degree direction indication. The display shows apparent wind speed and direction and, when connected to a log or GPS, it can also show true wind speed and direction.
Wireless wind speed and direction data to any compatible NMEA display
Easy installation with mast in place – no wires to run down
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 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.
