A high performance system that sends NMEA wind speed and direction data 10 times a second.
In demanding conditions, where high performance is essential, the Clipper Tactical wind mast sensor 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. Supplied as standard to Clipper, Target and Cruiser V2 wind systems.
NOTE – This 3 wire NMEA mast unit is not compatible with earlier 5 wire analogue Clipper, Target or Cruiser wind systems. The earlier analogue mast sensor is available on the spare parts page.

The AIS Engine 1 and 2 can be upgraded to AIS Engine 3 specification by replacing the processor. This is a straightforward procedure where the old device is simply unplugged from its socket and replaced by the new device. AIS Engine 3 relays all AIS messages.
This ‘do it yourself’ install chip will enhance your AIS Radar by adding the latest SART function. If a SART (search and rescue transponder) transmission is received the AIS Radar will sound an alarm in the SOS tone. The zoom range is also enhanced by zooming right down to 0.125 nautical miles for easier location of the SART beacon/MOB. Additionally a course over ground pointer can be activated by the user which appears if your vessel is moving at 2 knots or more, this greatly simplifies the interpretation of targets on the screen relative to your own boats heading.
